Editorial Reviews

Review

"Full of intrigue, action, laugh-out-loud humor, and some truly awesome tech, Chen's debut is a ripping great read. I loved it and can't wait for more!" - Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author of Zero World

"If you like your adventure lightning-paced and set in space, this is the book for you. Waypoint Kangaroo is a high tech thriller set on a passenger liner headed for Mars, featuring a wisecracking secret agent with a super power that will blow your mind. New writer Curtis Chen delivers non-stop action that twists and turns and finally hurtles to a harrowing climax. Prepare for old-fashioned sense of wonder updated with cutting edge hardware in this deft first novel." - James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards

"This Kangaroo could just be your new favorite wisecracking interplanetary adventurer."
- Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky

"The pace never flags in this high-stakes thriller, the plot never stops twisting and turning, and our hero never loses his sense of humor. Debut novelist Chen has created an engaging character and a rich, believable world. Sci-fi fans will love this fun, high-tech adventure." - Kirkus

""In this rollicking splice of mystery and high-tech SF...Chen’s debut keeps the plot twisting as the story builds to a powerful climax, leavening the suspense with Kangaroo’s droll quips. This book is an auspicious start for its author and his wisecracking series." - PW

"Kangaroo’s adventure is a great, fun read for anyone who loves a mystery or a spy story. The light narrative tone and funny side comments make the subject matter seem less serious, but the themes and comparisons to our current world are not lost on the reader." - Booklist

"Curtis C. Chen’s first novel, “Waypoint Kangaroo,” has a solid premise, a zippy plot, and some intriguing world-building. This is a promising debut. Chen writes with a breezy, cheeky style that reminds me of John Scalzi. Fans of Scalzi’s “Old Man’s War” Universe novels should seek this one out. There’s lots of room in his Universe for more stories starring the Kangaroo." - The Missourian
