Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE TENSORATE SERIES

"Joyously wild stuff. Highly recommended." --The New York Times

The Black Tides of Heaven voted one of the top 25 best fantasies of all time by Good Housekeeping and one of the top 100 fantasies by Time.

"Yang conjures up a world of magic and machines, wild monsters and sophisticated civilizations, that you'll want to return to again and again." --Annalee Newitz for Ars Technica

"Full of love and loss, confrontation and discovery. Each moment is a glistening pearl, all strung together in a wonder of world-creation." -- Ken Liu, Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Award winner and author of The Grace of Kings and The Paper Menagerie

"A rebel commander in a complicated fantasy world recalls her triumphs and struggles in Yang's superb fourth Tensorate novella. This thrilling adventure stands alone, as well as providing moving, complicated backstory for the earlier books in the series. Both fans and newcomers will be enthralled." --Publishers Weekly on The Ascent to Godhood

"The vicious and deadly court intrigues of this volume provide a deeper exploration of the interior life of the Protectorate court." --Booklist on The Ascent to Godhood

"Yang is a writer with a deft, evocative prose style, an epic approach to worldbuilding even in short forms, and frequently the ability to portray complex and compelling characters. There's space for more stories in the Tensorate universe, a lot more, and I hope to read lots of them." --Locus on The Ascent to Godhood

"Yang's masterful world building is on display, from the manipulation of the metaphysical "slack" to the creatures who inhabit the harsh mountains, made even more impressive by the nonlinear narrative structure. The Old World feel of their "silkpunk" fantasy is made modern by smoothly interwoven gender-nonbinary characters, whose richness enhances the emotional impact of this short but compelling work." --Booklist on The Descent of Monsters

"I love Neon Yang's effortlessly fascinating world-building." --Kate Elliott, author of Black Wolves and Court of Fives

"A fascinating world of battles, politics, magic and romance." --Zen Cho, author of Sorcerer to the Crown

"Filled with memorable characters and set in a wonderfully imaginative and original universe." --Aliette de Bodard, Nebula Award-winning author of The House of Shattered Wings

"Like a Miyazaki movie decided to jump off the screen and sear itself into prose, and in doing so became something entirely new." --Indrapramit Das, author of The Devourers

"Relentlessly captivating, heartbreaking, and powerful." --Fran Wilde, award-winning, Nebula & Hugo-nominated author of Updraft, Cloudbound, and Horizon

"Yang's prose carries the reader along... A really good book." --Locus on The Black Tides of Heaven

"Yang's writing is quiet, but it is the quiet of strength. It doesn't need to shout to be heard." --Michelle West for The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

"Yang captures an epic sweep in compact, precise prose." --Publishers Weekly starred review on The Black Tides of Heaven
