Editorial Reviews

Steven H. Silver
Even though the publisher is marketing LADY WITH AN ALIEN to a young adult audience, the book is enjoyable and complex enough for adults to read. Furthermore, Resnick's work is able to teach all of his readers, whether young or old, about the Renaissance and da Vinci in particular. Apparently, Resnick has plans to write further novels about the great artists and if they are anything like LADY WITH AN ALIEN, he will have done a great service to both the world of art and literature.
