About the Author

Gareth L. Powell was born and raised in Bristol, and his early mentors included Diana Wynne Jones and Helen Dunmore. His novels have twice won the BSFA Award, and been finalists for both the Locus Award in the US and the Seiun Award in Japan. He is probably best known for his acclaimed 'Trouble Dog' space opera series, which includes the novels Embers of War, Fleet of Knives, and Light of Impossible Stars. He is a popular guest and speaker at conventions and literary events, and can often be found on Twitter @garethlpowell giving free advice to aspiring authors.

Review

"a truly terrific, action-packed space opera that ponders what it means to be human" - The Frumious Consortium

"If you like space operas, science fiction, sassy people and drama then you will have one hell of good time reading Light of Impossible Stars" 5* - Fangirl Nation

"a well-planned and thoughtfully crafted trilogy" - Hugo Book Club

"Grand space opera...but also an intimate tale of a group of characters who become, after many heartbreaking losses, their own found family...I wholeheartedly recommend it" 5* - Red Headed Femme

"This final chapter of the trilogy unfolds with graceful order. Clearly, Powell crafts an overall narrative of this series with no hint of fat on these literary bones. You feel the drama, and the characters are perfect windows into the world presented to the reader. It is a revelation to the genre and a fine example of the exciting new era of fiction we are currently enjoying. If you are looking for a fast-paced, action-packed read, this should be at the top of your queue. It is an addictive and engaging read from cover to cover." Tulsa Book Review

"Gareth L. Powell delivers an explosive conclusion to his epic 'Embers of War' trilogy. With his genuine flair for originality and his impressively engaging narrative storytelling style, Powell's "Light Of Impossible Stars" is unreservedly recommended for community library Science Fiction & Fantasy collections. " -Midwest Book Review

"The author has created a story that is both adventurous and entertaining yet satisfyingly deep and gritty." - Rising Shadow
