Critic Reviews

"In a future in which genetic research is controlled by a religion, Brennan Candler wants to give his daughter, Tamsyn, a chance to live a long life. He agrees to genetic modification from a Methuselah tree but things will not prove that simple. Sistla creates a believable culture and some good characters and I'll look forward to more from this author." (SFRevu.com)
