"The Ghosts of Trappist has a bit of everything--space battles, swordfights, found families, mysteries, pirates, captures, escapes... At its essence, though, this book is military sci-fi with a beating human heart, and that's a rare thing in this world."
-- Edward Ashton, author of Mickey7

"Brilliant adventures and achingly human stories with a compelling ensemble cast - The Ghosts of Trappist has the excitement of classic SF with a thoroughly modern feel."
-- Everina Maxwell, author of Winter's Orbit

"As usual, K.B. Wagers delivers a rollicking space adventure, by turns serious and funny, full of witty banter, explosive tension, relatable characters, and families found and made. [...] I hope Wagers writes more in this series, or at least in one very like it: they have a wonderful knack for writing books that I find absolutely delightful entertainment." -- Locus

"Thrilling, explosive, and heartwarming. Wagers has become one of the go-to names for powerful space opera, and there's nothing quite like NeoG."
-- Jackson Ford, author of The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind

"A fantastic take on ghost ships that reminds us our past haunts us in all kinds of ways, and incredible world-building that makes you feel like you could go out and join the NeoG right now."
-- S.A. Barnes, author of Dead Silence

"Wagers lavishes a lot of attention on the internal conflicts and interpersonal frictions that accompany the more standard space battles and computer hacking intrigues. Readers who enjoy both the glitz of space opera and the conviviality of family dramas will be rewarded with as many embraces as EMP blaster pulses." -- Publishers Weekly

"Wagers's inclusive worldbuilding contains an amazing range of personalities, while the fast-paced plot still gives time for meaningful character stories....[They raise] the stakes with exciting action, terrific characters, and an expansive view on life in the universe." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Wagers's second NeoG novel serves up buffet-size portions of everything their fans have come to expect: dug-in friendships, action, impossible odds, and clever dialogue that always hits home...Wagers's characterization plumbs incredible depths, particularly with street rat-turned-engineering chief Jenks, a brain with vicious fists. Wagers's fans should snap up this fun, thrilling latest." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Hold Fast Through the Fire

"Wagers's sharp prose highlights the fast action and dialogue they're known for, bringing to life this story of found family, talent, and hard punches." -- Library Journal (starred review) on Hold Fast Through the Fire

"Although the storyline is powered by an impressively intricate plot that features mystery, intrigue, and nonstop action, it's the deeply developed characters and the dynamic relationships among them that fuel this narrative. Wagers creates a cast of characters that are not only authentic, but endearingly flawed...Top-notch character-driven science fiction." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Hold Fast Through the Fire

"Hold Fast Through the Fire is an ambitious, outstanding breath of fresh air in the military SF genre, and I would recommend it even to those who may not think of themselves as military SF fans." -- Chris Kluwe, Lightspeed Magazine for Hold Fast Through the Fire?

"Wagers kicks off the NeoG series with this fun, feel-good space opera. This effortlessly entertaining novel is sure to have readers coming back for the next installment." -- Publishers Weekly on A Pale Light in the Black
