Product Details


“The wonderfully inventive, delightfully wacky, and cleverly complex Midsolar Murders sf-mystery series is off and running again, this time exploring more of Mallory’s background while maintaining the delicious humor and intricate mystery prevalent in the first book.”—Booklist (starred review)

“The follow-up to Station Eternity is just as complex and engaging as its predecessor. Lafferty’s skill with dialogue and emotional arcs make the story equally character- and action-driven.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“This whirlwind adventure is good fun.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Station Eternity

“What a glorious romp. Murder, sentient space stations, and banter. It had everything I wanted.”—Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo and Nebula Award–winning author of The Calculating Stars

“As bingeable and satisfying as your favorite murder show. I couldn’t put it down.”—Sarah Pinsker, Nebula Award–winning author of A Song For A New Day and We Are Satellites

“Lafferty’s characters stomp off the page, kicking ass and taking names as they do. If Jessica Fletcher ended up on Babylon Five, you still wouldn’t get anywhere close to this deft, complicated, fast-moving book.”—T. Kingfisher, Hugo and Nebula Award–Winning author of The Hollow Places

“Mur Lafferty proves once again that she has the rare talent to blend and bend the sister genres of mystery and science fiction.   She gathers her cast of characters, both humans and exuberantly-imagined aliens, onto a sentient space station whose identity problems may cause the deaths of all aboard.  Meet resourceful and mordant sleuth Mallory, already cursed with being a serial witness to murder, who’s in a race to solve the mystery of Station Eternity and avert an interstellar fiasco.  Smart and sassy, here’s the book that will blast you to orbit.”–James Patrick Kelly winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards

“Mur Lafferty is turning into science fiction’s Agatha Christie, with her mastery of ensemble casts and deft characterizations. Station Eternity builds a whole new universe of alien civilizations and wraps it all in an engaging mystery. This fun, fast-paced novel is sure to please fans of both Six Wakes and Solo.”—S.B. Divya, Hugo and Nebula nominated author of Machinehood

“A clever and suspenseful sci-fi mystery, with intriguing characters and attentive worldbuilding. ”—Library Journal (starred review)

“A super entertaining read with great character development, neat aliens, and an engaging plot.”—Buzzfeed

“The Midsolar Murders series starter offers fascinating world building, a complex mystery, a devious espionage plot, and delightful interactions with a multitude of alien species that fans of science fiction and compelling mysteries will savor while they anticipate the next installment.”—Booklist (starred review)
