In The Press

Praise for Redemption Ark

“Clearly one of the year’s major science fiction novels…The book Reynolds’s readers have been waiting for.”—Locus

“If you like hard SF...with fast-paced action and hard-boiled characters...you're in for a great ride.”—SF Site

“The best of the new breed of space opera. Wild action on a grand scale spans well-imagined and developed worlds—bold and new with sharply defined differences in both characters and the changed definitions of humanity.”—The Denver Post

“A large, sprawling tale of war, politics, ideology and alien invasion. Skilled narrative technique and well-developed characters make this a novel most readers will find absorbing.”—Booklist
