‘Andrew Wallace shows a real talent for world building in this well-written, fast-paced debut novel. From the first page ‘Diamond Roads’ is packed with sci-fi smarts. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.’
Anne Charnock, author of ‘Sleeping Embers of an Ordinary Mind’ (Guardian SF Books of the Year 2016) and ‘A Calculated Life’ (nominated for the Philip K Dick Award)
‘Fast-paced, clever and beautifully-written, ‘Diamond Roads’ is a richly-imagined dystopian thriller that introduces the latest in a long line of cool, kick-ass SF heroines. Charity Freestone combines the strength of Ripley with the wiles of Katniss and the vulnerability of Halo Jones. If you liked ‘Wool’, you’ll love this.’
Mark Edwards, bestselling author of ‘The Magpies’ and ‘Follow You Home’
