Reviews

"Gripping . . . Birmingham alternates between gut punches and laugh-out-loud humor. . . . Plenty of twists, sharp turns, and fateful encounters will keep readers guessing and turning pages. This jarring, engrossing story of a species-wide fight for survival is recommended for all science fiction readers."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[The Cruel Stars] has everything going for it: interesting characters, immersive world building, a believable backstory, high-stakes conflict, visceral action, and credible villains. . . . This is what military space opera should be."--Booklist "For readers who loved the frenetic pacing of the first few episodes of Battlestar Galactica or the gritty realism of A Song of Ice and Fire, The Cruel Stars needs to make its way to the top of summer reading lists."--BookPage "This is the best book John Birmingham has ever written! Think Firefly meets Game of Thrones and then some."--A Couple of Pages
