The sequence is still a mixture of compelling storytelling, frighteningly excessive depictions of evil, sentimental pix of loyalty and braveness, and a few surprisingly reimagined conventions and stereotypes. Matthews retains returning to the opportunity of correct motion in a hideously unsuitable international, of decency suffering to claim itself regardless of the specter of discomfort and demise, of the sturdiness of compassion and respect.
-Russell Letson, Locus

[Matthews] brilliantly makes use of technological know-how fiction’s freedom of construction to make a global during which she will discover deep ethical conflicts.
-Denver Post

Matthews’ Jurisdiction novels are deeply concerned with personality, and extremely attracted to soreness, the dynamics of absolute strength, and the strain among conflicting – I hesitate to claim “moral,” yet might be “dutiful” will do – imperatives. i've got but to learn technology fiction by means of one other writer that takes those subject matters from an analogous angle.”
