Product Details


Praise for Mazes of Power

“The impressively winding plot, layered worldbuilding, and psychologically acute characterizations are sure to hold readers’ attention. Wade is an author to watch.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Delicious political intrigue and really cool world building.” —Ann Leckie, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of Ancillary Justice

“A vivid, thrilling journey through a wonderfully realized and wonderfully complex world; and a fascinating look at power and its exercise across different strata of an intricate society.” —Aliette de Bodard, Nebula award-winning author of The Tea Master and the Detective

“A twisty ride through family drama and tangled politics, Mazes of Power carries readers into a world of love and treachery, and doesn’t let them go.” —Laura Anne Gilman, author of The Cold Eye

“A deliciously complex, glittering work of family intrigue and life-or-death politics in a world that’s utterly alien, with characters who are all-too human. I loved it.” —Kelly Robson, Hugo award-winning author of Gods, Monsters, and the Lucky Peach

Mazes of Power is a gasp-inducing political Hunger Games packed with intrigue, assassins, and stunning social dynamics. I didn’t want it to end!” —Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth

Mazes of Power is a taut, tense, wonderfully claustrophobic entry into a world and society brimming with surprises and secrets. Loved it and cannot wait for more!” —Julie E. Czerneda, author of The Web Shifter’s Library series

“[Mazes of Power] is a deeply political novel, that treats with the complexities of caste as much as with the arrogance of ambition; and it steps as lightly through its major themes of political and mental disorder as it does through its plotlines of romance and revolution. This book is a delight to read, and a constant surprise, offering consequences as unexpected to the reader as they are to the characters.” —Chaz Brenchley, Lambda award-winning author of Bitter Waters

Mazes of Power showcases Wade’s ability to take the reader deep inside a fully alien culture on the grandest scale yet—even if the ‘aliens’ are fully human.” —Stanley Schmidt, author of Night Ride and Sunrise

Mazes of Power is one of those novels that redefines the genre…. With compassion and keen insight, not to mention the skill of a gifted storyteller, Wade has created Varin, a world without a sun, a society crumbling under the weight of its own survival, and characters desperate for power and for love…a world that will leave readers clamoring for more.” —Deborah J. Ross, author of The Seven-Petaled Shield
