The Worker Prince [is] a fantastic example of what can be done when the muses of creation and imagination converge. The story is gripping and descriptive, taking the reader on a virtual tour of a flawed society and its unstable hierarchy. The characters are relatable, and the setting is able to tread the fine line between futuristic and unrealistic…” —Supervillains Network

“…breathes dynamic new life into the space opera genre. Rich characters, wild action, and devious plotlines collide in a thoroughly entertaining book!” —Jonathan Mayberry, NYT bestselling author of Predator One and Deadlands: Ghostwalkers

“A brisk science fiction novel full of rich characters and settings, it embodies ‘sense of wonder’ in the best traditions of classic science fiction. Well worth your time!” —Robin Wayne Bailey, NYT Bestselling author of Dragonkin and Frost

“It’s a rare treat to find a book I unabashedly recommend to any parent, elementary school library or middle school librarian. This book has everything a young person could want in the way of great male and female characters they can identify with of various races, plus, action, adventure, intrigue, mystery, and even a little romance. Space ships and battles and great world building? Check. It has a great plot, too, and does not insult a young person’s intelligence with childish concepts. And wonder of wonders, it does not stray over the line and contain potentially objectionable topics. The writing is a very little on-the-nose at times, but that’s part and parcel with aiming for this demographic.” —Abyss & Apex Magazine
