"A marvelously heroic ancient legend reborn in humanity’s future days. Space opera fans will be swept away by the poetic rhythm and subtle plot construction."
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"Fascinating and intelligent."
Praise for Michael Flynn:
"This story weaves love, mystery, music, action, and a change to create a mammoth of a read that will leave readers enraptured in its pages for generations to come.”
—Sacramento Book Review on The January Dancer
“Flavored like Celtic poetry, The January Dancer is the first effort in what promises to be a space opera of epic proportions…. Will leave readers both wide-eyed and breathless.”
“The January Dancer is an innovative intellectual and stimulating take on the space opera in which, once again, Flynn demonstrates that he is a writer of the highest caliber.
"For fans of… Brainy first-contact tales (Carl Sagan meets Umberto Eco). Lowdown: bursting with pungent historical detail and Big Theme musings, this dense, provocative novel offers big rewards."
—Entertainment Weekly on Eifelheim
"A deeply researched and well-thought-out novel that moves us and makes us smarter just for having read it…. Excellent."
—Orson Scott Card on Eifelheim
"Firestar was a mighty hard act to follow, but Michael Flynn has done so, and brilliantly. Rogue Star continues the story, with the same imaginative realism, suspenseful narration, and vivid humanness, plus all sorts of new ideas and insights."
