Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Pointedly funny and deftly topical, an effortless Arthurian update with heart in all the right places.” E. K. Johnston, New York Times bestselling author
“In this intergalactic reimagining of Arthurian legend, a racially diverse queer and trans ensemble of characters leads the battle against the tyranny of capitalism. Capetta and McCarthy develop complex conflicts on multiple fronts…The women in the story grow together through their challenges with one another and learn from their differences. All hail this worthier-than-ever, fresh, and affirming reincarnation of the legendary king and her round table of knights which dazzles with heroic flair, humor, and suspense.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The inclusive, gender-bent King Arthur retelling your bookshelf has been missing…An adventure of epic scale, including on-page representation and celebration of people of many different sexualities, races, and gender identities.” Barnes&Noble Teen Blog
Fun and fearless, this story romps right across the galaxy and into your heart. Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of Illuminae
Once & Future is an utterly delightful romp, full of witty voice, imaginative adventures, and deeply lovable characters. It kept me up into the wee hours of the morning. I couldn't put it down! Katherine Locke, author of The Girl with the Red Balloon
Once & Future is a sizzling, bold exploration of gender, power, and revolution. Its dynamic and diverse cast will inspire and delight readers. I loved every second! Jessica Khoury, author of The Forbidden Wish
