"Noumenon is a grand interstellar quest that marries intimate detail with the sweep of social change and discovery across generations. I was enthralled."
--Yoon Ha Lee, author of Ninefox Gambit
"[An] ambitious and stunning debut...Lostetter handles a complex and fractured narrative masterfully, never allowing her novel to become confusing or unconvincing. There are no easy answers to the book's questions, but the lingering sense of wonder and discovery thoroughly justifies its title."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Soaked in the spirit of classic SF sensawunda, this ambitious debut explores the complexities of such an immense voyage, which pile up in surprising ways as the clones get further from the familiar."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
"Noumenon...offers a dreamlike exploration of evolving societies and the many ways humans can control, fight and love each other."--Washington Post
