Reviews

"The Dreaming Stars is fast and tense, with excellent dialogue, funny banter (much of it either graveyard humour or concerned with how much Callie and Elena are into each other), and characters who feel like real people. It has the atmosphere of pulp space opera, and a gleeful approach to the big ideas (and the big furniture) of science fiction. I really enjoyed it, and I hope Pratt has the opportunity to write many more novels in this setting."
- Locus Magazine"The engaging, inclusive, and entertaining Axiom series, may be his best work yet... witty, heartfelt sci-fi romp."
- Tor.com"The main reason I love this series is that it's just so fun. It's reliably fun. Sometimes, you need a book that you can trust to be truly and utterly fun, and that's The Dreaming Stars. The Dreaming Stars proves that this series will always leave me with a smile."
- The Illustrated Page"What can I say, if you liked The Wrong Stars, you'll like The Dreaming Stars, I know I did. Four out of five stars."
- Divine Nanny"The Dreaming Stars is a note-perfect sequel to The Wrong Stars, with all the best aspects of the previous novel, showing that science fiction can still be fun while also being progressive."
- Occasionally Random Book Reviews"The Dreaming Stars may lack the manic buzz that defined its predecessor, but its steadiness inspires confidence that this series is built to last."
- The 1000 Year Plan"The Wrong Stars was a brilliantly pulpish space opera romp, filled with compelling characters, weird alien tech, great banter, and more explosions than you could shake a stick at. It was good enough that I've been waiting impatiently for the sequel ever since. It's a piece of great good fortune, then, that The Dreaming Stars is every bit as much fun as its predecessor."
- Locus"A character-driven, banter-rich space opera with a great take on alien civilisations and 'Big Dumb Objects'... I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Pratt's space opera to become a fixture of my reading calendar for the foreseeable future. "
- Nerds of a Feather"A tense action-packed thriller where everyone, particularly the dynamic and thinking-out-of-the-box Callie, has to somehow stay one step ahead of the technologically advanced Axiom and the type of games they play to conquer every lifeform they meet. The ending is indeed an interesting one."
- Strange Alliances
