Review

Praise for the Reunification series:

“I almost never cry at books and this one made me sob. Twice! Powerful, surprising, and packing a serious emotional punchThe Gate to Futures Past is a true game-changer." —Karina Sumner-Smith, author of Radiant

“Czerneda excels at creating sympathetic characters and building intricate and fascinating worlds.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“Her multi-species style space opera universe...is a hallmark of the form, a fully realized saga of aliens and races and cultures that stands alongside works like C.J. Cherryh’s Chanur-verse.” —SF Signal
 
Complex worldbuilding, unique aliens (‘Assemblers!?’), a race to save a sentient species: Czerneda’s This Gulf of Time and Stars will draw readers in and ‘port us among planetary systems, each more dangerous than the next.”  —Vonda McIntyre, author of The Moon and The Sun
 
“Julie Czerneda’s narrative style is as masterful, intricate, and beautifully constructed as the complex universe of This Gulf Of Time and Stars.”  —Stephen Leigh, author of The Crow of Connemara
 
“Czerneda is a first-class builder of worlds that challenge the imagination and characters who seize your heart. This Gulf of Time and Stars is a compelling page-turner, and I was sorry to reach the end.”  —Jenna Rhodes, author of King of Assassins 
 
“Czerneda’s latest SF brims with sense of wonder, her amazing worldbuilding, and serves plots that span worlds. Don’t miss out!”  —Tobias S. Buckell, author of Hurricane Fever
 
“Warning! Gulf is non-stop, pitch-perfect, and possibly addictive,” —Doranna Durgin, author of Sentinels: Leopard Enchanted
 
Czerneda is a scientist first, asking this amazing question: What if an inherited characteristic of immense value to individuals and society was linked to a risk to the species as a whole? Sira di Sarc is Czerneda’s way of exploring this question—across worlds, species, and yes, time and stars.” —Ursula Pflug, author of The Alphabet Stones
 
“Heartwarming, fast-paced and just downright fun, new and existing fans of The Clan Chronicles won’t be able to put this book down.” —Marie Bilodeau, Aurora-nominated author of the Destiny series
