Praise for Threading the Needle:

In Threading the Needle, Monalisa Foster has fused the legacies of Leigh Bracket, Louis Lamour, and Robert Heinlein — with maybe just a TOUCH of Akira Kurosowa — in a voice entirely her own. Starships, trains, six-guns, nanotech, gen-engineering, cattle rustlers, and the fierce loyalty of combat vets in a mix which ABSOLUTELY works! — David Weber, Author of the Honor Harrington series.

A stunningly good book set in a world with rich cultures and a sense that violence and danger are always at hand. First, I feared Talia the sniper– then I cheered her, as she carved a path through intrigue so thick it required a sword to cut it. Fortunately, Talia is just that blade. A must read.— Terry Maggert, Author of Backyard Starship, The Messenger, and Starcaster series

The reviews are in:

“Foster has created one of the most intriguing characters I have seen in a while in science fiction…The plotting of this book reminded me of Timothy Zahn or Blake Crouch, with all sorts of twists and turns and other such events happening every which way. Foster is very good at it. She takes on a lot, and she succeeds in threading the needle (pun not intended but very much enjoyed), sewing them all into an engrossing narrative. She paces her story well, never letting it get off the rails, never letting it become dull.”–Nerds of a Feather

“Fans of Leigh Brackett will also love the book for paying homage to the queen of science fiction, and anyone who wants a pulse-pounding adventure is sure to like the increasing tension as the story rushes to its conclusion.  This is space opera with Japanese flair and Western archetypes at its best.”--Upstream Reviews
