Reviews

Praise for the Prefect Dreyfus series:

"This novel's ideas are mind-stretching, including a limbo where copies of the dead can be kept and interrogated, and a chillingly mischievous AI that tempts and mocks Dreyfus. The big concepts and complex story effectively pull readers into intriguing speculation about human identity and potential." ―Publishers Weekly on Elysium Fire

"Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages." ―Booklist on Elysium Fire

"Elysium Fire is a tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story and characters you'll come to care about." ―The Guardian (UK)

"An adroit and fast-paced blend of space opera and police procedural, original and exciting." ―George R. R. Martin on Aurora Rising

"This is solid British SF adventure, evoking echoes of le Carre and Sayers with a liberal dash of Doctor Who." ―Publishers Weekly on Aurora Rising

"Absorbing...gripping in the extreme...A fine provocative portrait of utopia on the brink. The relentless narrative momentum it employs simply underscores the pertinent urgency of that topic. The resulting mixture of space opera and police procedure is sublime entertainment." ―Locus on Aurora Rising
"A touching and spectacularly intricate sequel that also functions well as a standalone ... Every chapter reveals another layer to the far-reaching mystery, all the while building to a stunning crescendo in which characters old and new band together to face a long-dreaded scenario. Fans of hard science fiction, noir, and space opera alike will be sucked in."--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
