Editorial Reviews


[A] wonderfully creepy blend of horror and science fiction...Speculative fiction at its most transfixing.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on the Southern Reach trilogy"

As the Southern Reach trilogy concludes, another exploratory team is sent into Area X--that raw, almost biologically primal region that revealed its secrets in Annihilation and Authority...A satisfying conclusion to this captivating trilogy.

-- "Booklist"

The concluding installment of the Southern Reach trilogy ends where the story began: in a cloud of hallucinatory mystery...This trilogy represents an interesting pivot for VanderMeer: Although sharing many of the same motifs--metamorphosis, unusual fungi, and other organic material, a pull toward the sea--it's actually more restrained (if no less vivid) than the lush baroquerie of his earlier works. We leave knowing more about Area X than we started; we may not understand it any better, but we leave transformed, as do all travelers to that uncanny place.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

The concluding volume of VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy brings each of the series's narrative threads together for an enigmatic but satisfying conclusion...In many ways, this is the most mysterious and puzzling book of the three: VanderMeer employs multiple flashbacks and POVs, which contribute to a multifaceted, mutating portrait of Area X. The pacing of the narrative is slower, but the reader will want to move slowly so as not to miss any of the more subtle occurrences or psychological insights. By the time the book is finished, the reader knows that this trilogy is that rare thing--a set in which the whole is as great as the parts.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

The third volume in the Southern Reach trilogy takes us back to the region known as Area X...Easy answers are not on offer from VanderMeer, but he does give a sense of closure, and the three books together stand as a remarkable imaginative achievement. Displaying the dizzying skill with imagery and language that have been seen throughout the series, the author leaves readers with some answers, more questions, and an appreciation of the journey.

-- "Library Journal"

VanderMeer weaves together otherworldly tales of the supernatural and the half-human.

-- "Booklist (starred review) on the Southern Reach trilogy"
