From the Publisher"Vividly evoked. . . .Baker has a light touch, and her effervescent characterization and talent for social comedy make The Children of the Company picturesque and picaresque, sometimes extremely funny." -Nick Gevers, Locus
"Keep your eye on Kage Baker! You never know where she's heading next, but it's always worth going there. She's an edgy, funny, complex, ambitious writer with the mysterious, true gift of story-telling."
—Ursula K. Le Guin
"The book unfolds through both Labienus' memories and the journals and artifacts of Victor and others caught in his web. As in the other Company novels, the time line spanned is prodigious, despite which Baker never stints on characters and details that capture the reader's fancy."—Booklist on The Children of the Company
"Another entry in Baker's superlative series about Dr. Zeus . . . . An astonishing and thoroughly satisfying installment. What's more, Baker's overall concept and rationale, flawlessly sustained through five books, grows ever more spellbinding and impressive." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Life of the World to Come
