Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express
Victor Tanasa a dat nota:
I'm conflicted. If this was a standalone, it would get 5*. As a sequel to Children of Time, it's closer to 4*. As I don't like to spoil the plot in reviews, I only want to say that the only thing "wrong" with this book is that it's not as surprising / innovating as the first one and shares a bit too much with it. Otherwise, it has a lot packed in those 550 pages and it really is a great read.

"Brilliant science fiction and far out world building."—James McAvoy on Children of Time
"A refreshingly new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary worldbuilding you'll ever read."
—Peter F Hamilton on Children of Time
"Like a Stephen Baxter novel with an epic sweep of history (see his Evolution, for example), added to a broad cast of a Peter Hamilton Space Opera and the narrative drive of, say, a David Brin or a Greg Bear old style SF novel, Children of Time soon got me hooked."—SFF World on Children of Time
"The novel's clever interrogation of the usual narrative of planetary conquest, and its thoughtful depiction of two alien civilisations attempting to understand each other, is an exemplar of classic widescreen science fiction."—New Scientist on Children of Time
"An entertaining and thought provoking novel of post humanity, survival and legacy."—SF Signal on Children of Time
"Tchaikovsky's prose is superb, and his world building was exceptional, brilliantly realized on the page, and both fascinating and original."—Civilian Reader on Children of Time
