Anderson, New York Times bestselling author "Newcomers will have no problem getting oriented in this rip-roaring sci-fi world, and returning readers will be thrilled to dive back in." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Fleet Elements "With a pace that is faster than light....Fleet Elements is a space opera book that doesn't disappoint...full of gung-ho rebels trying to save themselves, with a side of power hungry aliens, and some witty banter." - Nerd Daily "Williams is consummate writer. His worldbuilding continues excellent, his characterization is solid and believable, and his attention to detail while juggling a complex story of intrigue and financial disaster is deeply, impressive.
