"The Huffington Post""


John Sandford is an amazing, protean writer, and "Saturn Run" is a terrific story of alien first contact. It s a book Michael Crichton would have enjoyed, but never could have written; he didn t have Sandford s gift of good humor and his uncanny ear for dialogue. With the able partnership of Ctein, it s fast, scientifically believable, and peopled by characters who become good friends. Fans of Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers will eat this up.
Stephen King
Three things to know: First, I m the world s biggest John Sandford fan. Second: I saw this book and thought ... what? Third: I needn t have worried. It s vintage Sandford all the way, with all his trademark strengths and insights, except set in the future, not the present. You won t be disappointed.
LEE CHILD
Utterly captivating! With the heart of a breakneck thriller and the mind of the best science fiction (Bradbury and Heinlein come to mind), "Saturn Run" keeps us enthralled from beginning to end. Sandford and Ctein have brilliantly pulled off the difficult task of making a very different world very familiar, proving that a born storyteller is a storyteller, whether he sets his books on mean streets or in deep space. I, for one, want more.
Jeffery Deaver
James Bond meets Tom Swift, with the last word reserved for international piracy, state secrets, and a spot of satisfyingly underhanded political pressure. "Kirkus"

"My compliments to Ctein and John Sandford for "Saturn Run." I enjoyed it greatly. It's a meticulous novel, 100 percent hard science fiction. A space war is the most difficult thing to portray, and the authors have pulled it off. I was reminded of "Footfall," my and Jerry Pournelle's own work, and Carl Sagan's "Contact.""

Sandford and Ctein conjure up some delightful chemistry among these characters, making their journey as harrowing as it is entertaining. Here is a prime example of the principle that in a sci-fi novel about space travel, half the fun is in getting to the destination. "Washington Post
"
The combination of both hard and soft sciences makes this story an excellent read. The central characters are well developed, compelling, and realistic. Highly recommended for the multitudes of Sanford fans and all those who revel in speculative fiction. "Library Journal"
James Bond meets Tom Swift, with the last word reserved for international piracy, state secrets, and a spot of satisfyingly underhanded political pressure. "Kirkus"
A must-read Scenes of beauty collide with catastrophes, as technology takes over in this incredible tale [with] a fabulous ending for all Sandford fans to thoroughly enjoy. "Suspense Magazine"
"Scenes of wonder and beauty are joined with moments of helpless calamity at a pace that leaves the reader no time to look back and consider what just happened. The authors include plenty of fascinating technology and inside jokes for SF fans, and the conclusion is inevitable and satisfying."" Publishers Weekly, "Starred Review
Traveling vicariously with these daring space pioneers makes for a riveting read....And it isn't a spoiler to reveal that it has a perfect ending. "St. Paul""Pioneer Press "
A gripping, futuristic tale. The overall experience of "Saturn Run" is like a mixture of Arthur C. Clarke's "2001: a Space Odyssey" and "Rendezvous With Rama." Readers looking for a great sci-fi story won't be disappointed. At almost 500 pages, the pace and compelling characters keep things moving and nothing seems padded. "Associated Press"
Ambitious and alluring, Saturn Run is sci-fi in the Arthur C. Clarke tradition, but stepped-up and updated. It s still powered by romance not of the unknown, but of what could just possibly be within our reach. "The Wall Street Journal""
