Amazon.com Contest Review
"This excerpt reminds me a lot of Paolo Bacigalupi's "The Windup Girl" with its attention to characer development and plotting as well as its fine prose. This is one of the best written excerpts I have encountered so far in reviewing potential candidates for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. IMHO this novel - if it is ever published - could earn the writer nominations for some of fantasy and science fiction's best literary honors, including the Nebula, Hugo and John W. Campbell Awards.
