Reviews of Truesight


Readers looking for something in the mood of Margaret Atwood could do a lot worse than pick up this Book. Having said that, however, it should be noted that Stahler writes like someone new to the genre. -- Steve Sawicki,

A strong debut novel. -- Paula Rohrlick, KLIATT

Stahler's powerful debut novel is two parts science-fiction thriller and one part cautionary fable about the dangers of fundamentalism. -- Publisher's Weekly
