"Outstanding. I love this series! Cassandra Kresnov is a
captivating heroine, and Joel Shepherd writes with skill and
insight. 23 Years on Fire is frightening and beautiful and
provocative and smart."
--Jeff Carlson, international bestselling author of Interrupt Praise for the Cassandra Kresnov Novels: "If you're in the mood for a fun, intelligent, and action-packed science fiction series, definitely give these books a try."

--Publishers Weekly "A fast-paced story of intrigue and adventure set against galactic politics. With particular appeal to readers of high-tech sf and cyberpunk, this title belongs in most sf collections."
