“Patrick Ericson, ha llegado más allá que Creso, quien quiso desafiar l. a. sabiduría divina y probar el funcionamiento de los misterios. Hay momentos en esta novela que todo parece tan actual, que me atrevo a asegurar que lo ha conseguido, por lo que deberemos estar pendientes los años próximos a ver si Patrick envejece o no envejece.”
