Product Details


“At times treading close to outright comedy, this is a fast-paced sf adventure that is, if you look at it from the right angle, more accurately a political thriller posing as an sf adventure. Fans of the first novel will have a great time, and newcomers should have no trouble picking up the plot’s various threads as the story moves along. Great stuff.”
Booklist, starred review

“The relationships between humans and their alien passengers continue to fascinate in this sequel to The Lives of Tao.
Library Journal

The Deaths of Tao is as funny, loveable and entertaining as the first book, and adds even more depth to the characters, story and themes.”
Fantasy Faction

“. . . the end result is a thrilling novel that without quirky aliens would sit triumphantly in Ian Fleming or Vince Flynn’s wheelhouse.”
Staffer’s Review

“Perhaps the strongest part of The Deaths of Tao is the fact that Chu never lets the story get bogged down. Every time he takes the story forward he does it with an action scene in mind, and this trick rips the reader through from start to finish.”
Buzzy Mag

“A great follow-up to a great book with a killer emotional ending.”
Founding Fields

The Deaths of Tao has a lot going for it, not to mention a lot going on. With the different perspectives, the alien factions in conflict, and the political and historical elements—there was literally never a dull moment.”
My Shelf Confessions

“Wesley Chu has developed something of a rarity in which there is a mixture of action, espionage, humor, and some romance that blends very smoothly together and gets the reader interested in the characters themselves and not just the endgame of the book.”
Comic Book Therapy

“A decent sequel whose ending made me want to pick up the last book right away.”
It’s All About Books

“Chu knows how to blend humor, thrills, terror and romantic angst into one entertaining package, and I can’t wait for more.”
Books, Bones, & Buffy

“Wesley Chu brings just the right amount of comic-book style to a setting of serious sci-fi blended well with secret-agent thriller action, and all starring a reluctant hero everyone will love. It’s a stellar combination!”
Popcorn Reads

“Chu has a wonderful ability to blend action and suspense with humor and sweetness. This is, hands down, a great book to read. I highly recommend you read the first book, The Lives of Tao, first. This whole series has proven to be highly entertaining of 5 hoots!”
