Praise for the Virga series
"Ashes of Candesce brings the Virga saga to an operatic, crashing finale; a splendid climax to the hard SF saga of the decade!” —Charles Stross on Ashes of Candesce
“Inventive and solidly enjoyable… Schroeder paints his unique world with deft touches while keeping the story moving briskly.” —Publishers Weekly, on The Sunless Countries
“A delight, a source of seemingly endless invention….” —Locus on Pirate Sun
“With Queen of Candesce, Karl Schroeder’s Virga saga establishes itself as an SF saga of the same order as LeGuin’s Earthsea series, Asimov’s Robot stories, and Niven’s Ringworld stories.”
“A fantastically alchemical tale set in a strange yet utterly real world. Hayden is a complex and well-developed protagonist and Schroeder is a amazingly detailed writer whose world-building is superb.” —RT Reviews on Sun of Suns
“I loved it. It never slowed down. The background is fascinating and the characters held my attention. It reminded me a little of The Integral Trees, with technology a little more advanced.”
—Larry Niven on Sun of Suns
