Review Quotes




PRAISE FOR THE MURDERBOT DIARIES SERIES

I love Murderbot! --Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice

The Murderbot series is a heart-pounding thriller that never lets up, but it's also one of the most humane portraits of a nonhuman I've ever read. Come for the gunfights on other planets, but stay for the finely drawn portrait of a deadly robot whose smartass goodness will give you hope for the future of humanity. --Annalee Newitz, author of Autonomous

Clever, inventive, brutal when it needs to be, and compassionate without ever being sentimental. --Kate Elliott, author of the Spirit Walker trilogy

Endearing, funny, action-packed, and murderous. --Kameron Hurley, author of The Stars are Legion

"Not only a fun, fast-paced space-thriller, but also a sharp, sometimes moving character study that will resonate with introverts even if they're not lethal AI machines." --Malka Older, author of Infomocracy

We are all a little bit Murderbot... we see ourselves in its skin. And that reading about this sulky, soap-opera-loving cyborg killing machine might be one of the most human experiences you can have in sci-fi right now..--NPR

"Wells gives depth to a rousing but basically familiar action plot by turning it into the vehicle by which SecUnit engages with its own rigorously denied humanity." --Publishers Weekly starred review

"I already can't wait for the next one." --The Verge

"A great kick-off for a continuing series." --Locus

PRAISE FOR MARTHA WELLS

"Martha Wells writes fantasy the way it was meant to be poignant, evocative, and astonishing. Prepare to be captivated 'til the sun comes up." --Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and God's War

"The Cloud Roads has wildly original world-building, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It's that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn't go where ten thousand others have gone before. I can't wait for my next chance to visit the Three Worlds!" --N. K. Jemisin, author of The Fifth Season

Breathtakingly surprising and fun. For readers who missed earlier entry points to this delightful series, now is the time to get on board. --The New York Times on The Edge of Worlds
