"AWESOME Medieval military fantasy. Orphan grows up into a brilliant mercenary general, with voices in her head (like Joan of Arc) - are they evil or good? Complex & enjoyable. Possibly the best sf/f book written of the decade. It's military fantasy, gritty and realistic, a campaign against Carthage, and also a scifi blend. 9.5/10"
"Military space opera. A retired elite veteran vowed vengeance against pirates who attacked her homeworld. With an ancient Greek goddess in her head and some cool powers, she pulls at the threads of an insidious plot. Super fun read for lovers of fast-paced space opera."
"Hard SF, space opera, romance. Soz is a telepath, jaggernaut, military general, and heir to an interstellar empire. Haunted by wounds from her past, she meets a mysterious young man, and kicks a lot of butt along the way."
"Lyrical fantasy. In a silvery world without color, a mysterious warrior woman pledges loyalty to a mysterious lord. She is capable and competent, with a wry sense of humor, suprisingly humble, imperfect, not cliched, with very real and believable insecurities and emotions. Beautifully written, enchanting, and poignant."
