Editorial Reviews

Review

"In a universe where the word for spaceship is the same as for world, two women struggle to escape a perpetual war in this dystopic yet hopeful space opera. This gripping book is both hard to read and easy to appreciate." (- STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly)

"One word will do it: Badass." (-- John Scalzi, bestselling author of The Old Man's War series and The Collapsing Empire)

"With mind-bending betrayals, heart-wrenching loves, souls and bodies driven to frenetic motion by war and hope, THE STARS ARE LEGION is a profoundly moving tale of self-discovery and self-construction in a world as wondrously layered as its unforge able protagonist." (— Ken Liu , Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Locus Award winner and author of THE GRACE OF KINGS)

“So, this is chock full of action and fights and battles and betrayals and political intrigue. And those world-ships? They are all biological. Nothing in this fleet is built, it’s all birthed, and there are tentacles and blood and mucous and body fluids everywhere. It’s kind of awesome fun. You should totally read it." (-- Ann Leckie, Hugo award-winning author of Ancillary Justice)

"A sweeping epic about a squad of starships—one that just happens to feature a cast of all female characters." (-- Charlie Jane Anders, Wired)

"Grabs you like a gravity well and won’t let go. This is a dark, haunting, recursive tale, unlike any other space opera with which you’re familiar. Discovering Kameron Hurley’s work is like finding a whole new galaxy, and she is the star at its center." (— Chuck Wendig, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of Star Wars: Aftermath & the Miriam Black series)

“Kameron Hurley has done it: She’s written a true space opera with no men in it. In a genre filled with generic portrayals of space, Hurley’s take is one-of-a-kind: equal parts love story and revenge tale, mixed with adventure science fiction and body horror.” (-- The Washington Post)

"One of the most unusual and powerfully disturbing space operas we're likely to see this year.” (-- Gary K. Wolfe, The Chicago Tribune)

"Thought provoking space opera." (-- Kirkus Reviews)

"The Stars Are Legion is like a magnificent storm tearing through the genre." (-- Popular Mechanics)

"Hurley takes the reader on an exciting and at times breathtaking journey through the world of her creation. This novel is highly recommended for anyone looking for an inventive and engaging science fiction experience." (-- Booklist)

"A mesmerizing read.” (-- Adrian Lang, Omnivoracious)

"A visceral, optimistic mash-up of new, weird, and grimdark science fiction that is a cracking good read. Hurley has really leveled up." (— MaryJo Schimelpfenig , Powell’s Books)

"The Stars Are Legion is poised to be Kameron Hurley's mainstream breakthrough, but apparently no one told her. It's unlike any space opera you’ve ever read—a bizarro blend of New Weird adventure, political thriller, and body horror; and an intimate examination of two deeply damaged women. It’s as visceral and violently angry as anything she's ever written, a ragged scream from the heart of a broken world—but one not past mending, if there are people brave enough to build a better one." (— Joel Cunnigham , B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog)
