Reviews

Praise for S. B. Divya

"Divya has created a richly imagined and eerily familiar world...confronting urgent questions about humans' place in a society increasingly run by AIs." --Kirkus Reviews

"This stunning near-future thriller from Divya (Runtime) tackles issues of economic inequality, workers' rights, privacy, and the nature of intelligence...Crack worldbuilding and vivid characters make for a memorable, page-turning adventure, while the thematic inquiries into human and AI labor rights offer plenty to chew on for fans of big-idea sci-fi. Readers will be blown away." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Meru

"The world presented here is rich and complicated, [and] the love story, plus plenty of jaw-dropping space scenes, will reward readers." --Kirkus Reviews

"Empathy convincingly overcomes anxiety in this thoughtful, inventive, and impressively understated space opera from Divya, [who] filters the immensity of outer space through the lens of close personal relationships, crafting compassionate and responsible characters (whatever their physical forms may be) that will surely win over readers." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This is a thrilling combination of traditional SF space travel and forward-thinking examinations of what 'humanity' will mean in the future." --Library Journal

"Divya's latest (after Machinehood, 2021) is full of twists and turns to keep readers glued to the pages, with rich worldbuilding that will truly invest them in the character's fates. Meru transcends genres and will appeal to fans of science fiction, philosophy, and fantasy." --Booklist

"Meru proves a worthy addition to the canon of post-human space epics." --The Washington Post

"Meru is a thought-provoking and imaginative future. With an intrigue spanning across interstellar distances, it still manages to be an intimate portrait of love." -- Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo Award-winning author

"A breathtaking epic tale that challenges our views of humanity and how two individuals can bond. Again, S. B. Divya forges a new trail into what science fiction can be, follow her and be amazed." -- Mur Lafferty, Hugo and Nebula award finalist
