Editorial Reviews

Don D'Ammassa
“An alien art expert and a number of humans set out to discover the secret of the Dark Lady, with art theft, xenophobic politics, alien ethics, and the human ability to entertain mutually contradictory positions simultaneously as added features…Resnick seems to be single-handedly restoring the space adventure to its former popularity.”
Peggy Newton
“The Dark Lady is narrated by an alien art historian who calls himself Leonardo…and just as Leonardo is haunted by the Dark Lady’s portrait, the reader leaves the book haunted by a romance that transcends all time.”
Rod Walker
Dark Lady is a riveting tale of mystery and discovery,”
