  Library Journal Review

Millennia in the future, with the sun expanding and dying, the last humans reside at the bottom of the ocean. With their life-sustaining technology finally failing, their leaders have given in to drugs, debauchery, and despair. Then, Stel Caine receives a message from a returning, malfunctioning space probe that has discovered another inhabitable world-but to retrieve that planet's location, someone must ascend to the Earth's uninhabitable surface and find the probe. So Stel lifts herself out of a decade-long grief caused by the splintering of her family and begins a quest that everyone else considers hopeless. Stel believes in the "law of attraction"-that reality is directly shaped by human consciousness-giving the story an unusual inspirational (though not overtly religious) philosophical underpinning. -Tocchini's art is sketchlike and occasionally awkward, but his coloring is wonderful; appropriately muted in tone while at the same time lush and expressionistic, whether depicting amazing technological and natural undersea vistas or highly charged scenes of drama and violence. -VERDICT A larger-than-life epic quest, adult in its portrayal of sex and nudity; absorbing and recommended.-S.R. © Copyright 2015.
