Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Luna: New Moon

“McDonald's never written a bad novel, but [Luna: New Moon] is a great one.” ―Cory Doctorow

"With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one. " ―Los Angeles Review of Books

“McDonald creates a complex and fascinating civilization featuring believable technology, and the characters are fully developed, with individually gripping stories.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"An engaging thriller... McDonald's portrait of a cutthroat society trying to survive in the deadliest of environments also make it one of the strongest science fiction novels of the year." ―The Chicago Tribune

"It’s a great scenario, lovingly detailed, and curiously attractive despite its current of unforgiving violence." ―The Wall Street Journal

"The best moon novel I’ve seen in many years. . . McDon­ald’s novel has some formidable SF stingers not far beneath its densely textured surface." ―Locus

"The story is innovative and fresh...has a feel of The Godfather meets A Song of Ice and Firemeets Ender’s Game." ―Portland Book Review

Praise for Luna: Wolf Moon

"Spare, simple, elegant when he needs to be...deep and meaty when he wants to be...[Mcdonald] does his work like an artisan pulling a sculpture from stone. " ―NPR

"Each of McDonald’s viewpoint characters is made human in fascinating and occasionally disturbing detail, and the solar system of the 22nd century is wonderfully delineated." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The fights and vengeance that follow are more vicious and intricate than anything in Game of Thrones, full of great acts of self-sacrifice and viciousness alike, brave cavalry charges and last stands, cowardice and avarice." ―Boing Boing

"For all the enjoyable intrigue he concocts, McDonald never lets us forget that the Moon is a frontier that basically just wants to kill us." ―Chicago Tribune
