From the Author:

Please note: Most of the reader reviews for this book appear under the one-volume edition of the trilogy, Children of the Star.


"Tension-filled, beautiful and haunting." --Commonweal

"Both logically and consistently suspenseful.... This Star will Abide a good deal longer than most here today, gone tomorrow sci-fi." --Kirkus Reviews

"An excellent plot and remarkable character development make this tale of the future highly satisfying and thought-provoking." --American Library Association, Top of the News

"This is not the electronic-light-flashing-exterminate-him-thing-from-outer-space type of science fiction. It is an allegory which poses one of the most heart-searching dilemmas of the human race, perhaps in the C. S. Lewis tradition. I mean Perelandra rather than Narnia." --The Junior Bookshelf, London

"Superior future fiction concerning the fate of an idealistic misfit, Noren, who rebels against his highly repressive society.... The attention of mature sci-fi readers will be held by the skillful writing and excellent plot and character development." --School Library Journal
