“Tobias Buckell is stretching the horizons of science fiction and giving readers a hell of a lot of swashbuckling fun in the bargain.” ―John Scalzi, bestselling author of Old Man's War
“Buckell delivers double helpings of action and violence in a plot-driven story worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster.” ―Publishers Weekly on Sly Mongoose
“Buckell's world-building, full of strong Aztec and Caribbean elements, is spectacular; the story, finely tuned and engrossing.” ―Booklist on Sly Mongoose
“Zombies. Interplanetary battles. Alien races. A hero that can destroy a city in a single bounce. What's not to love? Light enough for a beach read, smart enough for bedside, this novel can be enjoyed on multiple levels.” ―RT Book Reviews on Sly Mongoose
“Buckell represents an important force behind the genre's change. Buckell's work deals with complex racial issues in a way worthy of the self-proclaimed ‘literature of ideas': head-on, with no visible flinching, while still managing to give its readers a rollicking good time.” ―The Seattle Times
