"Metamorphosis is an exciting steampunk adventure whose scientific and ethical lessons arise in ethereal bursts."
— Foreword Reviews
"Metamorphosis includes quite an assortment of villains including one fiend, Ole Lukoje, whose favorite food is human eyeballs. Our heroes prevail in the final battle, and the trilogy comes to a satisfactory conclusion. The tale is particularly current with its description of the treatment by the local inhabitants of the dimensional refugees who are only seeking a better life.
"Metamorphosis is a novel for readers who enjoy complex plots, steampunk settings, and plenty of action. The author makes an effort to provide some background in the early part of the book, but this is one trilogy where it is a definite advantage to read the books in published order to be best able to follow the tale's twists and turns and track the characters who were introduced in the earlier volumes.
