Editorial Reviews

David Drazul
Sisson's strengths lie in characterization and dialogue. All of her characters, even the aliens, have distinct traits which make them unique..... This is a dialogue heavy novel, and the conversations feel authentic.... Trang is a virtual minefield of F bombs and other profanity. However, at no point did I feel it was gratuitous.... Trang is a clever return to the social sci-fi days of yesteryear. Convincing dialogue and strong characterization drive the story....
Keith West
If you enjoy anthropological sf, and you aren't put off by the language, this one might be for you.... Once again, an indie author has put together a book that is essentially error free.... While anthropological science fiction is not my first choice of subgenre (that would be space opera or hard science), I enjoyed this book. It held my interest, made me care about what happened to the characters, and kept me reading. Which is what I want from a book.
