Clarke AwardWith White Queen and North Wind, the first two volumes, Gwyneth Jones created some of the finest, most intelligent science fiction of the past decade. Phoenix Cafi maintains the first two volumes high level of philosophical speculation. It is a superb novel. -- The Edmonton JournalThe two earlier books still seem to me among the finest SF novels published in the 1990s, and should be sought out by any reader willing to scramble up some slopes and gulp rarefied air in return for a dazzling view....As thoughtful and as gracefully written as the other two...Jones is never less than eloquent, and Phoenix Cafi is full of incidental pleasures. -- Washington Post Book WorldWe never doubt that something of great importance is at stake...the nested levels of ambiguity that are Joness stock in trade. But a tolerance for uncertainty seems appropriate in any thoughtful exploration of alienness. Anyone willing to take up the challenge should read this trilogy from the beginning. -- The New York Times Book ReviewGwyneth Jones continues her profound subversion of science fiction and the society it mirrors, not attacking them from without but going deep into SFs core to discover new truths. A fine work from one of SFs best writers. --Rachel Pollack
