BOOK REVIEW

THE SPEED OF DARK by Elizabeth Moon
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 1, 2003

"Well-written, intelligent, quite moving. Moon places the reader inside the world of an autistic and unflinchingly conveys the authenticity of his situation."
Military-SF novelist Moon (Against the Odds, 2000, etc.) offers a touching account of an autistic man who struggles to cure his condition without changing his self. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

COLD WELCOME by Elizabeth Moon
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 11, 2017

"Solidly engrossing if unspectacular fare, with greatest appeal to readers who prefer the familiar over the innovative."

COMMAND DECISION by Elizabeth Moon
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Feb. 27, 2007

BOOK REVIEW

LIMITS OF POWER by Elizabeth Moon
Released: June 11, 2013

"A concluding volume is promised—and it'll have to be some finale to knit up all the strands. Moon proves here, as in the past, that she's more than equal to the task."
The fourth entry in Moon's solid-going-on-stolid Paladin's Legacy fantasy series (Echoes of Betrayal, 2012, etc.) is far from easily intelligible for unacquainted readers. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

MARQUE AND REPRISAL by Elizabeth Moon
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Sept. 28, 2004

"Excellent plotting and characters support the utterly realistic action sequences: swift, jolting, confusing, and merciless. Equally significant, Moon doesn't neglect violence's aftermath."
Second entry in Moon's latest spacefaring saga (Trading in Danger, 2003)—and it's a corker. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

TRADING IN DANGER by Elizabeth Moon
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Oct. 1, 2003

"A passable setup, with absorbing, fairly low-key complications and agreeable character development: an auspicious series opener."
From the versatile author of military-SF yarns and, most recently, The Speed of Dark (Jan. 2003), the kickoff to a new spacefaring/coming-of-age saga. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

KINGS OF THE NORTH by Elizabeth Moon
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY

BOOK REVIEW

ONCE A HERO by Elizabeth Moon
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 1, 1997
