"Thrilling, yearning, and paranoid. This book kept me up way too late!"

--Max Gladstone, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author
"The story's environmental themes are handled very well (O'Keefe gives the reader much to think about without sounding didactic); the characters are lively; and the writing is full of energy. A very promising series launch."--Booklist

"Brimming with unconventional gender dynamics and shifting identities, The Blighted Stars is character-driven science fiction at its best--a taut novel with human questions at its heart."--E. J. Beaton, author of The Councillor
"The Blighted Stars is everything I want in a book: lots of action, lots of character, and lots of heart. Megan E. O'Keefe delights with every page, from her stunning action sequences set on alien planets to her exploration of the twisted pathways taken by the human heart. This is space opera for the ages, wrapped in complicated and delicious layers of family and loyalty and science and love and duty. I couldn't put it down!"--Karen Osborne, author of Architects of Memory
"Full of deftly-plotted twists and turns, The Blighted Stars is a body-hopping, zombie-popping, rock-licking thrill ride."--Emily Skrutskie, author of Bonds of Brass
"O'Keefe delivers a captivating exploration of identity in this smart, addictive space adventure full of intrigue, visceral danger, and deeply personal stakes. Come for the epic sci-fi action, stay for the charmingly broken characters just doing their best."--J. S. Dewes, author of The Last Watch
"The Blighted Stars is a delightfully twisty space opera filled with unique worldbuilding and deft explorations of humanity, family, and power. Add in a dash of rebellion and a hint of romance, and I'm hooked--I can't wait for the next book!" --Jessie Mihalik, author of Hunt the Stars
"Emotional arcs and action sequences, vivid worldbuilding, and interesting explorations of body printing and corporate servitude provide an immersive story...O'Keefe's latest has the intrigue, surprises, and high stakes of her previous novels."--Library Journal
