Reviews

"Cohen has real talent with character development and interaction, andprickly, defensive Ro is a sympathetic and interesting heroine." --Publishers Weekly "Get on board Derelict, and you'll take an edgy, nonstop flight into an audacious SF future with unremitting danger as your pilot -- and thrilling adventure your destination." --Lynn Viehl, NYT best selling author of the Stardoc and Darkyn series "There's something special about watching an author reach her stride. LJ Cohen has done just that in Derelict. Intricate plotting melded seamlessly with delightful characterizations kept me turning pages as fast as I could go in an attempt to keep up with the unfolding story. A cracking yarn set in a lush future I'm hoping we'll hear more of." -- Nathan Lowell, Creator of the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper and the Tanyth Fairport Adventures. "LJ Cohen deftly weaves together realistic teenage characters, futuristic technology, and big stakes for a real page turner." --Wen Spencer, Award winning SF&F novelist, author of the Ukiah Oregon and Elfhome series ". . .not the usual YA. Nor is it the usual space opera. While some of the characters are military, they're not the heroes. In the second book, in fact, it becomes pretty clear that the Commonwealth, the interplanetary government, is no benign Federation, that there are serious cracks within society, and history has been... sanitised. A diverse cast, real consequences to physical injury, no easy fixes, realistic character arcs. . . . " --Mike Reeves-McMillan, reviewer, author, blogger
