Editorial Reviews

Taut suspense, strong characterization, and dark, rapid-fire humor are the highlights of this excellent SF adventure debut. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Promising science-fiction series ... for fans of stories with plenty of action and political maneuvering. Booklist
Behind the Throne opens with a bang and maintains the momentum throughout the story. RT Book Reviews
A darn good space adventure yarn. It takes the best of the smugglers' corner of the Star Wars universe and adds political intrigue and family drama. Tor.com
This debut ranks among the best political SF novels in years, largely because of the indomitable, prickly Hail ... fast-paced, twisty space opera. Library Journal (starred review)
Full of fast-paced action and brutal palace intrigue, starring the fiercest princess this side of Westeros. B&N.com
“Excellent SF adventure debut.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
The start of a damn good series. Rich world building, great characters, and an enthralling story make for a page turner."—Pop Culture Beast
“This debut ranks among the best political sf novels in years, largely because of the indomitable, prickly Hail. The secondary characters…are fascinating as well. The matriarchal structure of the Indranan Empire leads to some interesting gender dynamics, and the cultural influences being largely from India make for a welcome change. This fast-paced, twisty space opera borrows the political machinations from fantasies such as George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones and ­Katherine Addison’s The Goblin ­Emperor.Library Journal (starred review)
“Promising science-fiction series…for fans of stories with plenty of action and political maneuvering.” Booklist
