"A glorious, detailed world and an epic story! "Faster Than Falling" is up there with the grandest of adventures, set in a strange new land. I was reminded strongly of Robin Hobbs' wonderful tales (in voice, not content). Van Coops beckons the reader through the door, then drags you into a fantastic ride, replete with eccentric tech; alien naturescapes ... and good old-fashioned piracy. Storytelling at its finest!"- Robert Scanlon, Author of Constellation.
