Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the Web Shifter's Library

"
Search Image is the guaranteed most delightful and fun SF read of the year." —Marie Bilodeau, author of the Aurora-nominated Destiny series

"Julie Czerneda's novels 
ignite my sense of wonder, from the amazing worlds she creates, to the fully realized aliens and likeable characters. I eagerly await her next." —Kristen Britain, author of Green Rider

"As always, there are plenty of oddball alien hijinks, misunderstandings, and intrigues, all illustrating how badly the library is needed while providing 
excellent entertainment." —Locus

"Julie E. Czerneda is one of the leading SF writers of the 21st Century. A biologist by trade, she’s brought a unique appreciation for the far-ranging possibilities of extraterrestrial biology to her fiction, and the result has been some of the most
joyously alien characters in all of modern SF." —Black Gate

"
Search Image had one of my favorite settings so far (an all-inclusive alien library), and an abundance of interesting aliens. Czerneda’s worldbuilding and attention to biological detail is amazing, and something I always look forward to in her books." —The Obsessive Bookseller

"Once I started reading 
Search Image I could not put it down. I laughed, I cried; I’ll be honest, I hugged and smelled it quite a few times. I couldn’t help myself. I was so happy to have it in my hands." —BookGirl's BookNook

"This new fantasy is 
wildly imaginative and suspenseful.... A remarkable alien makes this new addition in the Web Shifter’s series one to enjoy." —Bookaholic Romance Book Club

A love of reading turned into a love of writing for Julie E. Czerneda. A former biologist, then writer and editor of non-fiction, in 1997 DAW Books published Julie's first sf novel, "A Thousand Words for Stranger" and she hasn't stopped since. Her work has received international acclaim, multiple awards,and best-selling status. You'll find her work in anthologies as well, as she enjoys working with other writers. Julie is a popular speaker, whether on writing, science, or the use of science fiction to promote scientific literacy. Her recent adventures included being Guest of Honour for the national conventions of New Zealand and Australia, as well as Master of Ceremonies for Anticipation, the Montreal Worldcon.

Her first novel led to The Clan Chronicles, a nine-book (3 trilogy) series concluding in "To Guard Against the Dark." Fear not, fans of Sira, Morgan, and the gang. They're back in The Clan Chronicles: Tales from Plexis, an anthology from DAW containing original stories by other authors in Julie's world, as well as a framing novella of hers.

Julie's also released two new titles about her most popular character, Esen, beginning The Web Shifter's Library series. Next up, a standalone fantasy, "The Gossamer Mage."

For more on Julie's work and upcoming events, please visit www.czerneda.com

Oh, and when not writing or at conventions? Julie and her photographer husband grab their canoe and disappear into the glorious wilderness surrounding their central Ontario home.

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome piece of science fiction!
Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2021
Spectrum is the third book from the Web Shifter’s Library series and I tell you that I just cannot seem to get enough of Esen and her shenanigans. Although, I will say this time around that the tone of this story is more serious than the previous two books. There are some lighthearted Esen moments, of course, and the same camaraderie I have come to expect with her and Paul but there are far more consequential moments than what I was expecting. In addition, I will share with you that this is a series that should be read in series order to understand the full scope of what is taking place for the All Species’ Library of Linguistics and Culture.

What I was not expecting but became totally jazzed about was that there was a lot more time spent with characters outside of Esen and Paul. How exciting! I really feel like I understand Evan Gooseberry on a whole new level and I love him to pieces! Additionally, I won’t give away anything but be warned that there are some disturbing elements in this story that are, well, disturbing for lack of a better word. One thing that you will really love about this book, outside of that fact that it is just an awesome piece of science fiction, is that there is closure that I was not expecting and great character growth. Spectrum was everything I have come to expect in this series and I encourage you to grab a copy today!

This review is based on a complimentary book I received. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.
