Staff Reviews


The Power is the story of a world inexorably changed by the ability of (almost all) women to electrocute with a touch. This is not a fable for the essentialist or the faint of heart. The patriarchy does go, but not quietly. The titular power shifts the balance, but it also corrupts as thoroughly as any other. The narrative is by turns infuriating and exhilarating, hopeful and terrifying, unnerving and wickedly funny--all of which make for an indelible reading experience.
