Reviews

"Truly inventive and stunningly imaginative world-building perfectly melded with vivid, engaging characters make the Books of the Raksura one of my all-time favorite science fiction series." --Kate Elliott, author of the Spiritwalker trilogy Praise for Stories of the Raksura, Volume One and The Books of the Raksura "Breathtakingly surprising and fun. Wells is a master worldbuilder."--The New York Times "Wildly original world-building, diverse and engaging characters, and a thrilling adventure plot. It's that rarest of fantasies: fresh and surprising, with a story that doesn't go where ten thousand others have gone before."--N. K. Jemisin, author of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms "Truly inventive and stunningly imaginative world building perfectly melded with vivid, engaging characters make the Books of the Raksura one of my all-time favorite science-fiction series."--Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series "The characters in these stories are just as complex, diverse and sympathetic as in the novels. Their gender roles are explored believably, their actions are also believable and they have realistic problems. . . . The relationships and tensions between the characters are handled admirably."--RisingShadow.net "A strong set of stories that joyfully show new and extended aspects of a fascinating fantasy world."--Paul Weimer, SF Signal "That rarity--a completely unique and stunning fantasy world."--Hugo Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear "Martha Wells writes fantasy the way it was meant to be--poignant, evocative, and astonishing. Prepare to be captivated 'til the sun comes up."--Kameron Hurley, author of The Mirror Empire and God's War "With these books Wells is writing at the top of her game, and given their breadth, originality, complexity, this series is showing indications it could become one of the landmark series of the genre."--Adventures Fantastic "An imaginative world of engaging characters . . . the dramatic battles, tough decisions, and character dynamics shine through."--Publishers Weekly "Martha Wells' Raksura books are dense, and complex, with truly amazing world building, and non-human characters who are quite genuinely alien, yet still comprehensible and sympathetic."--Kelly McCullough, author of the WebMage series and the Fallen Blade novels "Two novellas and two short stories expand the setting of Wells's dreamlike fantasy novels. ... Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells's deft touch with characterization and the fantastic." --Publishers Weekly "Truly inventive and stunningly imaginative world-building perfectly melded with vivid, engaging characters make the Books of the Raksura one of my all-time favorite science fiction series." --Kate Elliott, author of the Spiritwalker trilogy
