Product description

Review

Follows in the tradition of Ann Leckie's Ancillary series to produce a fast-paced story of political intrigue and
gender issues held together by a tight plot and a cast of sympathetic characters. Behind the Throne is thought-provoking entertainment and great fun

(GUARDIAN)

Taut suspense, strong characterization, and dark, rapid-fire humor are the highlights of this excellent SF adventure debut (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

This debut ranks among the best political sf novels in years (Library Joiurnal (starred review))

Reminiscent of Star Wars, author K.B. Wagers has created a futuristic world that mixes classic monarchical structures with fantastical tech in a most natural way (RT Book Reviews)

I can hardly wait for the sequel. I could use more fun space opera (Liz Bourke for LOCUS)

Wagers's debut is full of fast-paced action and brutal palace intrigue, starring the fiercest princess this side of Westeros (Barnes and Noble SFF Blog)

A fast-paced space opera with some great characters and an even better world (The Verge)

Taut suspense, strong characterization, and dark, rapid-fire humor are the highlights of this excellent SF adventure debut (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

This is the kind of book which promises non-stop action and delivers wholeheartedly, with the prose structured to fit a fast-flowing plot (Starburst)

"Behind The Throne is a politically charged and action-packed story, with a commanding woman at it's centre. It's a wonderful start to a promising new sci-fi series" (SciFi Now)
