Reviews

Praise for Luna: New Moon"McDonald's never written a bad novel, but [Luna: New Moon] is a great one." --Cory Doctorow"With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one. " --Los Angeles Review of Books"McDonald creates a complex and fascinating civilization featuring believable technology, and the characters are fully developed, with individually gripping stories." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"An engaging thriller... McDonald's portrait of a cutthroat society trying to survive in the deadliest of environments also make it one of the strongest science fiction novels of the year." --The Chicago Tribune"It's a great scenario, lovingly detailed, and curiously attractive despite its current of unforgiving violence." --The Wall Street Journal "The best moon novel I've seen in many years. . . McDon-ald's novel has some formidable SF stingers not far beneath its densely textured surface." --Locus"The story is innovative and fresh...has a feel of The Godfather meets A Song of Ice and Firemeets Ender's Game." --Portland Book ReviewPraise for Luna: Wolf Moon"Spare, simple, elegant when he needs to be...deep and meaty when he wants to be...[Mcdonald] does his work like an artisan pulling a sculpture from stone. " --NPR"Each of McDonald's viewpoint characters is made human in fascinating and occasionally disturbing detail, and the solar system of the 22nd century is wonderfully delineated." --Publishers Weekly, starred review"The fights and vengeance that follow are more vicious and intricate than anything in Game of Thrones, full of great acts of self-sacrifice and viciousness alike, brave cavalry charges and last stands, cowardice and avarice." --Boing Boing"For all the enjoyable intrigue he concocts, McDonald never lets us forget that the Moon is a frontier that basically just wants to kill us." --Chicago Tribune "Each of McDonald's viewpoint characters is made human in fascinating and occasionally disturbing detail, and the solar system of the 22nd century is wonderfully delineated." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Luna: Wolf MoonPraise for Luna: New Moon"McDonald's never written a bad novel, but [Luna: New Moon] is a great one." --Cory Doctorow"With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one.
