Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A thought-provoking tale set during an event that could bring about the end of humanity. Unlike other end-times tales, there are no zombies or nuclear holocausts; rather, it is quiet and lonely, and the survivors must make their own way to find each other. The world-building is thoughtful, the prose is beautiful, and the quirks of the characters are well crafted.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
An original thinker and a very, very effective writer. Fay Weldon, author of Before the War
[A] fast-moving and gripping ‘end of the worlds’ tale focused on the efforts of flawed survivors to ensure the end is not the end of humanity. Jack Campbell, New York Times bestselling author of Vanguard
With its unique plot and luminous prose, it’s hard to believe that The Space Between the Stars is a debut novel. Anne Corlett understands the complexities and frailties of the human heart and captures it brilliantly on the page. Don’t let the setting fool you—this is a story for any age, combining love, loss, grief, hope, and possibilities all in one delicious book. Definitely one for my keeper shelf. Karen White, New York Times bestselling author of The Night the Lights Went Out
Anne Corlett has taken the themes of apocalypse, people attempting to create Utopia but unleashing Armageddon, population engineering and breeding programs, and put her particular stamp on the familiar. The Space Between the Stars is a sci-fi story laced with homey details like e-readers and jigsaw puzzles--there are no esoteric descriptions of warp drives or biodomes or aliens. But there is adventure, there is romance, there is self-discovery. Shelf Awareness
Anne Corlett is a writer with huge potential, and I’m looking forward to her future works. Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August
