Starred Review for Transcendental

Exploration! Intrigue! Redemption! SPACE!

SFWA Grand Master James Gunn brings us TRANSCENDENTAL, the story of Riley, a veteran of interstellar war and one of many beings from various worlds aboard a ship on a pilgrimage that spans the galaxy. Riley isn't aboard to achieve transcendence, the mystical concept that has drawn everyone else to this journey, his mission is to find and kill the prophet who is reputed to help aliens transcend.

"Impeccably plotted, with absorbing human and alien characters and back stories, Gunn's narrative expertly cranks up the tension and paranoia as, piece by piece, answers emerge. Gunn’s best in years—quite possibly his best ever." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
