These, which range from the complicated menage a trois in The Sunbound to the marital contention in Eclipses, have been described as engrossing, amusing, and compelling. Exotic, exciting detailed settings and intense interpersonal relationships make her novels some of the reliably enjoyable science fiction on the market today, and have inspired such comments as “Let me choose my words carefully. This is the finest science fiction novel I have read in the last five Years” in Science Fiction Review, and “…fun, fast and full of schemes that keep it entertaining” Locus.
