Reviews

Praise for How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse

"Fun and feminist, unique and stylish, with a heroine who'll steal your heart. If fairy tales and space opera had a clever baby with a big vocabulary and a rebellious streak, this would be it." --Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times-bestselling author of Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire

"This is big, imaginative space opera at it's best. Filled with complex characters and twisty politics, Rory Thorne is an awesome ride." --Michael Mammay, author of Planetside

"Rory Thorne raises the bar for self-rescuing princesses everywhere. This clever fusion of unforgiving fairy tale and fanciful space opera destroyed me emotionally in all the best ways." --Curtis C. Chen, author of Waypoint Kangaroo

"Readers will be clamoring for the second installment before Chapter One is over. Told with just enough editorializing from a Dickensian narrator, this story delights from cover to cover. The political intrigue never fails to surprise, each character is layered and compelling, and there's a perfect balance between science-fiction action and fairy-tale fantasy. Do not, under any circumstances, miss out on this." --Kirkus (starred review)

"Eason adds a feminist modern twist to fairy tale and sf tropes while presenting an intergalactic adventure that enthralls in its own right, striking that ideal balance between original and familiar.... A delightful start to what promises to be a smart, unique series." --Booklist (starred review)

"Beautifully layered, endlessly entertaining.... Using a mixture of hacking skills and hexes, political maneuvering, martial arts, and flirting, Rory manages to destroy the multiverse and control her own fate. How she gets there is a journey well worth the read. Exquisitely written with complex characters, sardonic wit, and immersive worldbuilding. Highly recommended." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and picture outer space plus fairy tales plus political intrigue plus magic. Whatever you're thinking of, How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse is all those things, but better." --Hey Alma

"Joyfully, delightfully amazing.... Definitely one of my favorite books of the year thus far." --Roarbot
