Kas is a junior academic on a research mission to old Earth. When a con-artist tricks her into wagering a huge sum of money she doesn' t have on the outcome of a manned robot arena battle she becomes drawn into the seedy underworld of old Earth politics and state-sponsored battle-droid prizefights. Is it time to get back to the books, yet?
Long on mecha action and character development. . . Though this stands alone, readers would surely welcome further adventures. --Publishers WeeklyPraise for Django Wexler: "Warning: You' ll probably be hooked on Wexler' s insane ' flintlock fantasy' worldbuilding. " --Charlie Jane Anders on "The Penitent Damned" "A standout. . . . There' s no time like the present to lose oneself in the military and political struggles of the Vordanai Empire. " --Fonda Lee on The Shadow Campaigns series Ship of Smoke and Steel is a brisk, gritty adventure starring a heroine with genuine agency and power, despite the overwhelming odds stacked against her. The world is sharp and unforgiving, the mysteries are deep, the action is harrowing and triumphant. --Scott Lynch, author of The Lies of Locke Lamora "A gripping, fast-paced fantasy enrapturing readers until the end. . . beautifully constructed with tantalizing details that evoke a variety of cultural influences. The characters are well-developed, and diversity--in ethnicity, ability, and sexuality--is abundant. " --Kirkus Reviews on Ship of Smoke and Steel Wexler. . . has another engrossing winner on his hands. --Booklist on Ship of Smoke and Steel "Three cheers for a female protagonist who demonstrates strong leadership skills without losing the prospect of love or friendship. " --Kirkus Reviews on The Fall of the Readers "Wexler is an exceptionally good writer, period. " --Foz Meadows on The Shadow Throne
