Aurealis Awards Shortlist for Best Science Fiction Novel
‘I strongly recommend the Sentients of Orion series for any space opera or sense of wonder sf lover, though he/she should start with Chaos Space or even better, Dark Space. Otherwise you will be missing on what is fast becoming one of the most accomplished and best modern sf offering out there. And as a bonus, once you immerse into the setting, the novel is fast and reasonably short, so no fear of having to trundle through a door stopper here.’ Fantasy Book Critic
‘The third and penultimate book in the ingeniously constructed The Sentients of Orion space opera series, Mirror Space is choreographed perfectly to set up the world shattering finale in Transformation Space… Mirror Space is a brilliant continuation of The Sentients of Orion series, lifting it once again to a new level.’ Fiction Et al
Scifiguy.ca ‘The third book in the Sentients of Orion series, Mirror Space is space opera supreme with so much going for it. The build up in books 1 and 2 has been great and now the pay off can start ready for the conclusion in book four. I’m reading this at the moment and can tell you that it’s living up to expectations. For space opera with some strong characters and great plotting this series is one to read.’
Walker of the Worlds: ’Mirror Space has once again shown that the Sentients of Orion series is one that deserves your attention and that Marianne is a writer worthy of praise. Highly recommended.’ Overall rating 9/10
‘As you’d expect with Marianne, the writing is full of twists and turns, the characters jump out of the pages and you can see each combative maneuver in your minds eye with amazing HD clarity. Add to the mix vivid landscapes that are almost photographic and the novel written from various Points of View and it’s a novel that very much ticks all the right boxes for me as a reader…’Falcata Times.
‘Mirror Space is the third book in de Pierres’ The Sentients of Orion series, which has been described by numerous reviewers as ‘Space Opera supreme… This is quality Space Opera with battles, aliens, romance, technology and humour.’ The Straits Times.
‘Mirror Space by Marianne de Pierres (Orbit)… There is a definite power to Marianne’s prose, and underlying current that draws you in while you enjoy the story. These are skills to place her in the leagues of Williams and even Zahn and Brin. Get all 3 books and make someone’s Christmas.’ Rob Stephenson, Aurealis Express
‘Marianne de Perres ‘Mirror Space’ Orbit … is a startlingly well executed novel with a skillful story line and I say you all – get all three books in this series – good work is hard to find.’ Aurealis Express.
‘The Sentients of Orion series is a lot of fun. Fast paced and witty, it’s space opera on an intimate scale. Yes, there are lots of big ideas supporting the action, but this tale works best at the character level. Here are real people you care about, living through extraordinary circumstances, being changed in believable ways by their experiences and – hopefully, although we won’t know for sure until book four – winning out. Mirror Space continues a very satisfying series from Marianne De Pierres, and the final chapter can’t come quick enough.’ Coeur de Lion
‘The intertwined stories from the other characters glue together nicely in this third book, crossing paths and continuing on their way. Now in the third book of the series, many of the main characters have developed from their humble beginnings to well rounded and interesting players.’ The Fringe
