Reviews
"I loved The Diamond Deep. Excellent writing, fabulous story, and an emotional punch that leaves you wishing that Cooper wrote faster. Damned fine storytelling."
--J. A. Pitts, author of Forged in Fire

"Cooper makes her real-life model, Argentina's Evita Perón, a clear presence while declining to be mindlessly constrained by her inspiration. Interestingly for a genre that often glorifies "lifeboat rules" and contrived hard choices, Cooper's protagonists err on the side of mercy; violence has its place but they do their best to bring change through law. Similarly the studied indifference of the rich and powerful to the weak and poor is condemned, not praised. A sequel to 2012's The Creative Fire, this is a worthy conclusion to Ruby's story."
--RT Book Reviews, Four stars

Praise for The Creative Fire (Book One of Ruby's Song):

"What [it] does, and does well, is marry the character-driven focus of Cooper's writing with an intriguing protagonist, a well thought out setting and spins a fascinating story. I most definitely want to read the second volume of Ruby's Song."
- SF Signal

"Cooper puts a science fiction spin on the life of Eva Perón in this fast-paced, teen-friendly series starter." - Publisher's Weekly

"[A] wonderful work of social science fiction." - Kirkus Reviews

"Readers will admire Ruby's resolve and ability in this dystopian thriller." - VOYA

"An intriguing protagonist, a well thought out setting, and...a fascinating story. I most definitely want to read the second volume of Ruby's Song." - SF Signal
