"I already had high expectations before starting The Rhysu Alternative. I was expecting the same level of intricate plot, smart characters, and impressive narrative. I was completely surprised when P.D. Blackwell exceeded all of my expectations and gave me a lot more." - Rabia Tanveer

"Author P. D. Blackwell presents a worthy sequel after the excellent worldbuilding and complex emotional dynamics of the first foray into this incredible universe. After what Bev went through in the opening novel, I thought it would be hard to top, but her journey of empowerment in her new situation was really inspiring." - K.C. Finn

"Blackwell creates conflict at multiple levels without taking away from the story the balance it deserves. The crisp prose is enriched by the engaging dialogues, but the strength of the narrative lies in the author’s expert handling of plot points and the conflict which escalates to an explosive climax." - Romuald Dzemo
