Praise for Stars and Bones:

“Powell balances plot, action, and character development perfectly. This promising start will especially appeal to James S.A. Corey fans.” – Publishers Weekly, starred review

“With a strong heroine, some really imaginative supporting characters (including a talking cat), and a story that packs a serious emotional wallop, the novel spotlights Powell’s gifts for character-building and plotting. He’s already won two best-novel awards from the British Science Fiction Association, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see this one getting a nomination, too.”Booklist

“Gareth Powell drops you into the action from the first page and then Just. Keeps. Going. This is a pro at the top of his game.”
John Scalzi

“A headlong, visceral plunge into a future equal parts fascinating and terrifying.”
Adrian Tchaikovsky

“A gripping, fast-paced space opera that poses the unique question: what if instead of saving humanity, aliens decided to save the Earth?”
Stina Leicht, author of Persephone Station

“A grand scale adventure packed with fun banter, snappy prose, and masterful science.”
Essa Hansen, author of Nophek Gloss

“An interstellar intelligence has a plan for Earth’s future, but is humanity a part of it? Fast-paced and thoughtful, Stars and Bones leaves the reader well-fed with hearty helpings of mystery, suspense, adventure, and terror.”
Marina Lostetter, author of Noumenon

“Gareth Powell’s Stars and Bones is shocking and beautiful—an electric, epic, and sometimes gruesome look at humanity facing its biggest challenge yet. Powell keeps the pressure on and doesn’t let go. I enjoyed it immensely.”
Karen Osborne, author of Architects of Memory

“A vividly imagined, propulsive read. Filled with a loveable cast of characters. Powell’s writing creates a rich tapestry of their voices and inner lives. I think readers will be thrilled by this story.”
Temi Oh, author of Do You Dream of Terra-Two?

“Big ships, big ideas and big emotions. Thrilling space opera which is epic in scope, yet always rooted at the human level, as all the best sci-fi is.”
Emma Newman, author of Planetfall

“An interstellar collision of massive ideas and startling originality.”
Zack Jordan, author of The Last Human

“Stars and Bones crafts a future that finds hope in dark places.”
Valerie Valdes, author of Chilling Effect
