Praise

“Tipping his hat to both science fiction novels and comic books, Chu delivers a narrative that is at times pulse-pounding, laugh-out-loud funny and thoughtful. Part James Bond, part Superman, part Orphanage. There’s something here for everyone.”
– Myke Cole, author of Control Point and Fortress Frontier 

“Filled with non-stop action and brilliant asides on the history of our species, the book is sure to thrill and amuse.”
– Ken Liu, Nebula Award winning author of The Paper Menagerie

“A totally original sci-fi thriller that will have you hooked from page one with both riveting action and a sly wit. This is a story of human history, the hidden powers that have shaped it, and one man’s transformation from complete nobody to a key fighter in the war for humanity’s future.”
– Ramez Naam, author of Nexus

“Wesley Chu is my hero… he has to be the coolest science fiction writer in the world.”
– Lavie Tidhar, World Fantasy Award winning author of Osama and The Bookman Histories

“In The Lives of Tao, newcomer Wesley Chu delivers an action-laced scifi thriller filled with clever ideas and witty, engaging characters. A thoroughly enjoyable ride.”
– John Marco, Author of The Inhumans and The Tyrants And Kings trilogies

“A fast-paced, high-action SF mix of Jason Bourne meets the hero’s journey, jam-packed with dark conspiracies, wild romance, ancient aliens, and a secret, globe-spanning war. Loved it!”
– Matt Forbeck, author of Amortals and Hard Times in Dragon City

“Just your usual ‘I’ve got an immensely wise alien in my head who wants me to become and international man of mystery’ story. Which is to say, a page-turning homage to other classic SF like Hal Clement’s Needle. Recommended.”
– Steven Gould, author of the Jumpers series

“In Wesley Chu’s debut novel you meet an unlikely hero in the form of Roen, an out-of-shape, self-loathing, under-achieving computer geek. He is soon transformed into a confident, lean, mean fighting machine under the guidance and influence of the ancient alien Tao, who has inhabited his body and is now working hard to get Roen in shape for an important mission – nothing less than to take on the Genjix and save the planet from an evil plot of destruction. This book is high-octane spy vs spy action with a sly sense of humor. Pure pleasure from beginning to end. Highly recommended!”
– Ann Vandermeer, Hugo winning editor of Weird Tales and British Fantasy Award winning publisher of Buzzcity Press
