Praise for Cry Pilot

“I picked it up, I started reading. I kept reading. This is that kind of book, intense, involving, with intriguing world development. Recommended. Joel Dane is a writer to watch.”—C.J. Cherryh, author of the Foreigner series

“Joel Dane’s Cry Pilot is a hyperkinetic and unflinching battle narrative that never loses sight of the truth of being a soldier: the squad comes before all else. Told with momentum and immediacy, Cry Pilot is authentic, exciting, and excellent.”—Marko Kloos, author of Terms of Enlistment

“In Cry Pilot, Joel Dane has imagined a fascinating high-tech future Earth where ecological collapse and runaway evolution have conspired to create enemies no army has ever encountered before. Told through the eyes of a young soldier seeking to escape a grim past, the action-packed plot holds tight to a human dimension.”—Linda Nagata, author of The Red Trilogy

“Awesome read!”—Nico Lathouris, screenwriter, Mad Max: Fury Road

“Riveting action paired with a sharp psychoemotional landscape combine for the explosive launch of a futuristic trilogy….an intriguing, thoughtful exploration of what a corporatized future might look like, liberally peppered with scenes of military life.”—Publishers Weekly

“Reads like a well crafted video game, but with more heart. It would have been easy for this story to be all intense, all the time, but with the “found family” story weaved in, you will find an unexpected amount of family here. The stakes are high for these characters making this book impossible to put down.”—Pure Fandom

“A diverting read for die-hard fans of military science fiction.”—Booklist
