"Fun, funny, pacy, thought-provoking and very clever space opera-a breath of fresh air."
-Sean Williams, author of Twinmaker
"Ridiculously fun with a well-thought-out space opera setting and lots of fancy reveals, and most of all a nice romance between two women who are there for each other when the alien brain spiders start swarming."
-Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky
"Pratt's worldbuilding fascinates, and the plot serves up action and big ideas in equally tasty helpings. This is definitely a series to watch."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Through his wit, dialogue, and vast, diverse world, Tim Pratt has created a space opera for today-one filled with diverse characters and cultures that feel nuanced enough to be real-while still delivering the sense of wonder that made you love the genre in the first place. It yanks readers through the wormhole and refuses to let them go. When's the sequel out?"
-Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
"Pratt gives all his characters and his galactic civilizations depth, his action sequences are page-turners, and the tone stays light-hearted (and sometimes even meta) despite the high stakes. I don't use the word "rollicking" often, but it applies here."
"Brilliantly fun space opera that reminds me of Killjoys but with more Weird Alien Cool Shit."
-Liz Bourke for Locus
"Bloody hell, but The Wrong Stars is an amazingly good, extremely fun, very satisfying novel... The Wrong Stars is vital, visceral, energetic pulp. The characters are enormously engaging, especially Callie and Elena, whose slow-build romance and mutual uncertainty over does she like me? and developing friendship are, by me, the emotional heart of the book . . . The Wrong Stars stands out, and right now, for me, stands alone."
