DIAMOND MASK by Julian May
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 28, 1994

"Again patchy and irritatingly inconclusive; but May handles both the psychic complications and the family interactions with pleasing skill, and the upshot is another probable crowd-pleaser- -though no place for newcomers to start."
