"Infidel is a well thought-out and intelligent novel, which asks a number of questions and refuses to present easy answers. " SFF Chronicles "Readers who enjoyed God's War will not be disappointed by Infidel... I highly recommend it." Strange Horizons Magazine "Hurley's world-building, vivid and blissfully free of infodumps and expository lumps, was one of the great strengths of God's War, and it's a pleasure to return to the fascinating and messed-up world she created -- one especially enjoyable for its ethnically diverse cast and freewheeling remixes of traditional gender roles. " Tor.com "...Kameron Hurley is worth investing in... this is ground breaking work and should be recognized... " Staffer's Musings
