Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Basically, it's Treasure Island meets Moby Dick, set in space, with a nice Blade Runner-ish color palette and a cast of character worthy of a Terry Gilliam movie. I loved it. Joanne Harris
The World of Revenger is undeniably fascinating, and with Reynolds as your storyteller, a journey into it is definitely worthwhile. SciFiNow
By far the most enjoyable book Reynolds has ever written. SFX

An excellent, gripping piece of work. SFANDF Reviews
A layered star-spanning odyssey filled with drama, adventure, and, yes, revenge. AudioFile

Starbust
A delightful romp through the spaceways. Interzone
A rollicking adventure yarn with action, abduction, fights, properly scary hazards, very grisly torture and even ghosts of a sort. The Daily Telegraph
A blindingly clever imagining of our solar system in the far flung future. The Sun
Revenger is classic Reynolds-that is to say, top of the line science fiction, where characters are matched beautifully with ideas and have to find their place in a complex future. More! Greg Bear
A swashbuckling thriller--Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly--that nevertheless combines the author's trademark hard SF with effective, coming-of-age characterization. The Guardian
“Space salvage is no occupation for a proper 15-year-old girl. But Fura Ness, as demurely voiced by narrator Clare Corbett, is no ordinary teen…Thanks to Corbett’s vocal choices, listeners can hear this hardening in Fura. The chameleonlike Corbett also effectively voices Fura’s many diverse crewmates—from burly men to hardscrabble women…The enjoyable result is a layered star-spanning odyssey filled with drama, adventure, and, yes, revenge.” AudioFile
Alastair Reynolds [is] one of the leading lights of the New Space Opera Movement . . . . Revenger is tremendous fun." —Locus
Reynolds has sketched in a galaxy littered with the relics of former civilizations (human and alien), with plenty left to the reader's imagination, and room for a sequel. Library Journal
"Reynolds' newest action-packed science fiction novel is a tale of sisterly devotion, heartbreaking loss, and brutal vengeance . . . Fans will enjoy the well-developed characters and detailed world building. Booklist
An expert mix of the fantastical and horrific. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Packed full of adventure…The most enjoyable book Reynolds has ever written.” SFX
