Reviews for Ang Mga Alitaptal ng Pulang Buhangin:
"Smart, funny, thrilling, heartfelt, heartbreaking but ultimately rousing and inspiring, this handsomely illustrated future-set coming-of-age sci-fi yarn about bravery, sacrifice, and heroism rooted in centuries-old Filipino myths and legends is an improbable trimph of storytelling and style. Simply put, this Alitaptap sparkles." - Eric Cabahug, author of Deadma Walking (Palanca Awardee)
"In the post-apocalyptic world of RH Quilantang, science fiction meets Philippine mythology as a ragtag band of young heroes uncover the truth about what divides us and what unites us. The pandemic has only magnified the inequities of our cultural and social systems. Ang Mga Alitaptap ng Pulang Buhangin shines the light on the beliefs and values which we must hold close to our hearts if we are to rise up again as a people." - Jing Lejano, writer, editor, publisher of Lulaland.PH
