Reviews

Praise for The Library of Broken Worlds: "Mysterious, sweeping, wholly original, and anchored by an extraordinary heroine as wily as she is vulnerable. Johnson has crafted a story so immersive it will leave you drunk with visions of strange worlds and new gods, so compelling you'll be happy to drown in this dizzying, bloody brew of technology, lore, and world-shaking conflict." --Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Shadow & Bone"An ambitious, multilayered, multidimensional exploration of power, selfhood, freedom, and love. Alaya Dawn Johnson writes with fluidity and precision about mind-bending ideas and gorgeously imagined worlds, but also with tactile specificity about food and ritual. This novel rewired my brain." --Malinda Lo, New York Times bestselling and National Book Award winning author of Last Night at the Telegraph Club"One of the most haunting and lovely tales I've ever read. Modern epic poetry. Wow." --N. K. Jemisin, New York Times bestselling author of the Broken Earth trilogy"Alaya Dawn Johnson immerses us in a genderqueer-friendly universe filled with space travel, gods, and AI that we want to cher for. Readers will be transported into a wholly unfamiliar and completely fascinating new spacetime." --Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, author of The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams DeferredPraise for The Summer Prince: Longlisted for the National Book AwardA Kirkus Best Book of the Year* "Like leaping into cold water on a hot day, this original dystopian novel takes the breath away, refreshes, challenges, and leaves the reader shivering but yearning for another plunge." -- Booklist, starred review* "With its complicated history, founding myth, and political structure, Palmares Tres is compelling, as is the triple bond between June, Enki, and Gil as they challenge their world's injustices." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review* "An art project, a rebellion and a sacrifice make up this nuanced, original cyberpunk adventure... Luminous." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewPraise for Love Is the Drug: Nebula Award winner for best young adult novel* "Utterly absorbing." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Equal parts character study and thriller, Love Is the Drug offers a gripping study of identity, sly social commentary, and a chilling glimpse of a dystopia that's just around the corner." --NPR
