"The writing is crisp, the story moves quickly, and the characters are well drawn... This is a more than impressive first novel; it is a rollicking good read."
-Galaxy's Edge Magazine
"The Rogue Retrieval straddles the land between science fiction and fantasy in a quirky, pleasing blend that freshens the milieu."
-Pat's Fantasy Hotlist
"Don't come looking for dark, life changing soul searing fiction here - this is an adventure novel, and you're going to get adventure, whether you like it or not. Quinn is the sort of character who you want to see win--or at least survive to run away another day."
-J.C. Nelson, author of The Grimm Agency series
"A cool premise, a likeable hero, and suspenseful action make it a fun read."
-Eric James Stone, Nebula award-winning author of Unforgettable
"A great concept and lots of fun. One of those books you wish you thought of yourself and wonder why you haven't read it before."
-Auston Habershaw, Writers of the Future winner and author of The Iron Ring
"A fast-paced adventure with likable characters."
-Mervi's Book Reviews
"With a world that can offer both sci-fi and fantasy storytelling, Koboldt has a very large canvas to work with, and The Rogue Retrieval is an excellent first stroke. Recommended."
"A very different sort of read, one that might appeal to fans of UF who are looking for something that breathes new life into the genre."
