Review Quotes




Moving and nuanced characterizations distinguish this subtle look at an Earth suffering the consequences of climate collapse. --Publishers Weekly Starred Review

Bleak and hopeful in equal measure, Clade is a striking paradox of a book--a soothing tale of the coming apocalypse. --BookPage

Bradley moves quickly through the lives of his protagonists, sketching their stories during key moments in the unfolding narrative. But the real story here is the all-too-realistic vision of an ecosystem in the throes of collapse, portrayed in stunning, sobering detail. --Booklist

a stunningly beautiful novel, characterized as much by lyricism as pointed critique of how humans are stewarding the planet. --Chicago Review of Books

Novels like Clade provide the lens we need to see our way forward. --Locus

"entertaining, insightful, and all around a great book" --Gamers Sphere

"makes the devastation of global warming intensely personal" Book Riot

Barnes & Noble SFF blog:

"haunting, strangely optimistic"

"Bradley's ability to find poetry amid brutal circumstances, his focus on the undeniably human problems of his cast, and a hopeful message of survival make Clade a melancholic celebration of humanity, not an elegy"

"Bradley's novel is absorbing and depressing, as it is thoughtful and fascinating"

"Clade is possibly the most beautiful, optimistic end of the world novel ever written...equal parts beautiful, melancholy, and a little bit hopeful."

"a cli-fi masterpiece" BookRiot
