Editorial Reviews


Spear of Light exceeds my already high expectations for a Brenda Cooper novel. The exploration of what makes us human shines through this entertaining read.”

—J. A. Pitts, author of Black Blade Blues

“I loved Brenda Cooper’s Philip K. Dick Award–nominated novel Edge of Dark, but the follow-up, Spear of Light, is even better. Cooper pits human against post-human and brilliantly reveals the best and worst of her characters. This is a fascinating, well-realized world.”
—Patrick Swenson, author of The Ultra Thin Man

Spear of Light wraps a gripping thriller around a cosmic mystery and makes you care deeply about the characters caught up in it all.”
—James L. Cambias, author of Corsair and A Darkling Sea

“Fascinating…. Edge of Dark is worth reading for a unique vision of artificial intelligences…and Cooper gives you a lot to think about.”

“Incisive, challenging, and brilliant… it’s a story that explores the “what ifs” in beautiful, dazzling fashion.”
Kirkus Reviews

“The characters...are sharply drawn, and the plot is full of action and deep insight into the future of human society as it takes to the stars. An entertaining, thoughtful novel.”
Shelf Awareness 

“Just terrific… Full of profound questions about what it means to be human, a confidence that technological development will continue even as humans themselves long for more nature… thrilling.” ―
