Ninefox Gambit is one of B&N’s SF/F Debuts to Watch for in 2016

Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee is one of B&N’s 7 SF/F Debuts to Watch for in 2016!

“Captain Kel Cheris is in a tough spot. After disgracing herself in battle, she’s given a second chance: retake a star fortress recently seized by heretics. Unfortunately, the only way to do that seems to be to team up with the digital ghost of an undead general most known for going crazy and massacring his own army. The first in the planned Machineries of Empire series, Ninefox Gambit more than deserves the significant advance buzz it has received, and won’t disappoint fans of Lee’s brain-bending short fiction.”

Publishers Weekly on The Edge of Worlds

The Edge of Worlds by Martha Wells

“In the beginning of this new full-length entry in Wells’s Raksura series (following 2012’s The Siren Depths), the entire community of Indigo Cloud, home to a shape-shifting race called the Raksura, has a nightmare of their world being destroyed by their archenemies, the predatory Fell. To prevent that, Jade, Moon (her consort), and other Raksura must join a group of archaeologists from several races to investigate an ancient site that could destroy them all…When the Fell do show up and bring a new wrinkle to their characterization, the dramatic battles, tough decisions, and character dynamics shine through. Filtering the story mostly through the semi-outsider Moon, Wells overcomes pacing flaws to keep this series going strong with an imaginative world of engaging characters.” — Publishers Weekly
