Rocky Mountain News Review

If you like your novels to proceed in a linear fashion - something happens, which leads to another situation and so on - this heavy tome is not for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for convoluted plots and frequent time, place and narrator shifts; if your definition of a good read is an enigma within an enigma wrapped in a conundrum, then Hal Duncan's first novel should be just your cup of tea...

...Unlike many novels with planned sequels, Vellum has a satisfying conclusion. Duncan's talent and research abilities are immense, and reading his first book is a challenge, but finishing it is an accomplishment.
