M.K. Gilman took a rather mundane subject and turned it into a fascinating novel. It was actually a pleasure to read and difficult book to put down. Good job with The Erenwine Agenda!!!

A great read

Maia has spun a wonderful novel here with well developed plots, sub-plots, and characters. I was impressed on the elegant way that she intermingled the storyline with sustainability issues.

A closeup and personal glimpse into the architectural concerns of struggling people trying to merge business and ecological responsibility when the sky is not the limit, there is no blank check, and you are in preexisting situations that don't allow an infinite choice of possibilities.
