Praise for Some Desperate Glory

Some Desperate Glory is honest, unflinchingly so. This book will hurt you and you will say thank you. It has everything you'd want in a queer space opera--wit and imagination and adventure, all within a brilliantly constructed world with an 'unlikable' and wholly irresistible lead. Reading this feels like bearing witness to something revolutionary... It will change you for the better.--Olivie Blake, New York Times bestselling author of The Atlas Six

Masterful, audacious storytelling. Relentless, unsentimental, a completely wild ride. I had a time. Talk about Mass Effect beating up Brave New World in a dark alley.--Tamsyn Muir, New York Times bestselling author of The Locked Tomb series

Kyr is a revelatory hero--never have I so fervently wished the worst for someone, only to end up cheering for them... Fierce and heartbreakingly humane, this book is for everyone who loved Ender's Game, but Ender's Game didn't love them back.--Shelley Parker-Chan, Sunday Times bestselling author of She Who Became the Sun

A profoundly humane and brilliantly constructed space opera that will have you cheering, swearing, laughing, and ugly-crying. It's perfect.--Alix E. Harrow, New York Times bestselling author of The Once and Future Witches

This book hit me like a lightning bolt. From the destruction of Earth on the first page, to the human cult on a forgotten space station, to the indoctrinated teen soldier whose narrow worldview Tesh cracks open with pliers, this book is astoundingly good. An explosive and extraordinary story that I couldn't stop reading and will never forget.--Everina Maxwell, author of Winter's Orbit

Devastatingly entertaining, horribly funny, Some Desperate Glory swoops through space and time with effortless precision, never pulling a punch or settling for an easy answer. There's nothing else like it.--A. K. Larkwood, author of The Unspoken Name

Praise for the World Fantasy Award-winning Silver in the Wood

A true story of the woods, of the fae, and of the heart. Deep and green and wonderful.--Naomi Novik

A wildly evocative and enchanting story of old forests, forgotten gods, and new love.--Jenn Lyons

Find a quiet place in a nearby wood, listen to the trees whisper, and thank the old gods and new for this beautiful little book, of which I intend to get lost in again and again.--Book Riot
