Reviews
Praise for August Kitko and the Mechas from Space:

"[A] music-infused space opera smash...Music forms the backbone of this beautifully balanced, artistically rendered space opera, which expertly combines well-executed action with witty banter between charming characters. Fans of epic, feel-good sci-fi are sure to be wowed." --Publishers Weekly

"Emotionally complex and mind-blisteringly weird, this novel kept surprising me at every turn. It's like a beautifully-orchestrated disco space battle, and I never wanted it to end." --Annalee Newitz, Lambda Award winning author of Autonomous and Four Lost Cities: A Secret History of the Urban Age

"White balances the elements of this space opera brilliantly in this first book in a new series, from the emotional connection between the characters to the huge plot pieces. The connection between Greymalkin and August, especially, is hilarious and endearing; they are two unlikely heroes that the reader will root for." --Booklist

"A brilliant firework display of apocalypses, giant robots, gore, glam, and a nonbinary music icon--this is mecha absolutely masterfully done." --Everina Maxwell, author of Winter's Orbit

"Evangelion by way of David Bowie--visceral, big-hearted, and ready to rock your world." --Emily Skrutskie, author of Bonds of Brass

"For fans of music, mayhem, and truly epic space opera, August Kitko and the Mechas from Space is a wild ride that starts with the end of the world and only gets better from there." --K.B. Wagers, author of Hold Fast Through the Fire

"August Kitko and the Mechas from Space bursts with action, humor, and heart. Amid a dire and tragic setting of humanity facing apocalyptic extinction, it's a hopeful shot of joyous adrenaline and whimsy...White uses lively characterization and pacing--with an effective blend of space opera, mecha anime, and music--to tell a story of human strength, weakness, and resilience." --Fantasy Book Critic
