'Here is a book that stretches the mind and keeps it taut. From the first page, Sandi Hall grabs you by the imagination and never lets you go. It’s a novel that feels like history retold, but retold so authentically that you’d swear it was true... Move over, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John: this is a Gospel for the new millennium.’Denis Welch, NZ Listener
'Magic realism, fantasy, historical faction and a playful cynicism ... a witty and inventive tale that may antagonise the devout, but shouldn’t. Besides, anyone who can successfully make a futuristic New Zealand in the throes of revolution with the grandeur of Alexandria obviously has considerable skills.’Murray Waldren, The Weekend Australian
