Suzanne Palmer's writing is delightful. --Hugo-, Nebula-, and World-fantasy finalist Fran Wilde, author of the award-winning Bone Universe trilogy Finder is a raucous good time! Suzanne Palmer's Fergus Ferguson is charming, imperfect, always in trouble, and a most resourceful rogue. I can't wait for his next adventure. Characterization at its finest. Firecracker dialogue. --W. Michael Gear, New York Times-bestselling author of Outpost Finder proves hard SF, done brilliantly, is passionate, powerful, and brimming with humanity.
