"A smartly realized extension of the story, one that is genuinely engaging, infused with a solid sense of dread, and sets a pretty exciting stage for "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes." - The Playlist "A quick, entertaining read that will get you pumped up for the new film." - Geeks of Doom "Fans of the Planet of the Apes franchise will greatly enjoy this book. Reading it right before going to see the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes film is an extra added bonus." - Geek Girl Project "Firestorm" is a great bridge between the Planet of the Apes films." - Retrenders "If you're a fan of the Planet of the Apes franchise and the rebooted series, then this is worth a read." - Pop Cults "Keyes' prose in Firestorm is lean and to-the-point, and sprinkled with zoological and anthropological insights. But the book's main selling-point is its plotting, which juggles storylines that accelerate quickly, as the world begins to fall apart." - The Dissolve "I thoroughly enjoyed the novel, and would recommend it for anyone intending to see the movie." - Red Orbit "Books that are tie-ins to movies don't have the best track record, but this as an exception, with great pacing, some deep character building, and smart writing all around. Plus it's got me hyped for the next movie so from a marketing perspective I'd call that a total success." - Ain't It Cool "An entertaining and engrossing read." - City of Films "Entertaining and fast paced." - Horror Talk "I read it in a single sitting just because I couldn't stand to put it down." - Comic Book Review "An entertaining and engrossing read for fans of the series, giving insight and empathy to the very moment when the Earth shifted back from human to ape, and the conflict involved wherein." - Examiner "Firestorm is a worthy addition to the Planet of the Apes mythos filled with figures you quickly develop an attachment to." - Den of Geek "To say that I enjoyed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm would be a gross understatement. 5/5 stars." - SciFi Mafia "A rare treat. As a fan of the franchise, I can state that the material which pre-existed is handled with reverence and care by author Greg Keyes, and that which did not pre-exist is carefully crafted, smartly written so that I can easily embrace the plot and be entertained as well as emotionally invested." - Muggle Net "I recommend it for any Planet of the Apes fans." - Agents of Geek "If you thought the first film was entertaining and wanted to know a little more of the 'Planet of the Apes' mythos - I highly suggest picking this one up!" - ScienceFiction.com "More than a novelization, Firestorm is among the best movie tie-in novels you'll find. It is much more than a quick read, and Keyes delves into social, political, and scientific issues in so many ways to provide a story steeped in the morality tales of classic science fiction, while carrying with it that wide scope of action and excitement that readers want." - Borg.com "One of Keyes' best works and could end up being better than the film in a lot of readers' eyes." - BGG Magazine
