"Tobias Buckell is stretching the horizons of science fiction and giving readers a hell of a lot of swashbuckling fun in the bargain."
--John Scalzi, bestselling author of Old Man's War
"Buckell delivers double helpings of action and violence in a plot-driven story worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster."

--RT Book Reviews on Sly Mongoose
