“A story that humanizes the epic and narrates space-time through details and emotions.”
Sofía Rhei, author of Newropía
“Science fiction should never lose sight of humanism and that is something that this novel does very well. Beyond her classic and meticulous approach, a passionate heart for human relations and cooperation strongly lingers in it.”
P. Roberto Jiménez, Jury for the 2020 Minotauro Prize
“Ships rescue other ships because the enemy is not the other, but the unknown. This is the first national classic of (philosophical) hard science fiction of the 21st century.”
