Product Description:

Joan D Vinge's sequel to her amazing Snow Queen novel provided Michael with the perfect opportunity to create the companion piece to his cover art. Again he has woven key elements of the story into the mask and his singular imagination and attention to fine detail is in full display.

Review:

"As large and splendid as its predecessor." --"Chicago Sun-Times"
"Vinge has written a book which is a true sequel to "The Snow Queen," and it's a winner. "The Summer Queen" is more complex, richer, and in the end more rewarding than" The Snow Queen." Totally satisfying. This is the kind of book that could only be science fiction: the kind of book we're all richer for having in our field." --Tom Whitmore, "Locus"
"A sequel even more successful than the works that preceded it. Given that "The Snow Queen" won the 1981 Hugo for best novel, this is high praise indeed." --"Philadelphia Inquirer"
"The long-awaited sequel to Vinge's enormous "The Snow Queen." . . . An absorbing and satisfying performance." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred)
