    "I'm not a big Star Wars fan so this book doesn't interest me. It's apart of a Trilogy but still, not my type of book."

    "This book is not a must-read from Timothy Zahn. His earlier books are much better. This book is not without its charms though, so if you run out of reading material, you could do worse."

    "Although this absolutely is a must read book by Timothy Zahn, it's the third in a trilogy. The first book, Heir To The Empire, would be a much better pick."

    "Considering how well know Timothy Zahn is for his Star Wars work this is where he shined. In Deadman's Switch real hard morality questions are asked in a really well developed universe. Everything here is believable and approachable even though the subject material is complicated to say the least."

    "I started reading Zahn books for the popular Starwars titles but decided to branch out a little to see what else he had to offer. I was pleasantly surprised with the depth of the mystery and the detail in the scifi world that he created. I couldn’t put it down."

    "Are you a Zahn fan? Did you love Thrawn and his Star Wars books? If so, you will love this book, Manta's Gift. It's different from his books about the famous franchise, however you will be enthralled by the journey of Matt, who is reborn in, let's just say, an alien body on the toxic planet of Jupiter. Set in space, where Zahn does his best writing, this book is definitely a must read for all Timothy Zahn fans. You won't be able to put it down, I couldn't. "
