Some of what's been said about Destiny's Blood (which also won the Bronze Medal in the science-fiction category of the Foreword Books Awards):
"Marie Bilodeau knocks my socks off. She's got an amazing eye for detail and a sumptuous narrative voice. Destiny's Blood is a winner -- another home run from one of Canada's best new authors." -- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of WAKE, and Aurora nominee (and multiple times winner)
"This book is a highly enjoyable read—it’s compelling and well-written tale of Layela Delamores and her twin Yoma ... this story is well-crafted and often cinematic, at times reminding me of Firefly/Serenity or Star Wars: A New Hope. The story’s pace is fast, with many plot turns. ... Bilodeau writes these numerous action scenes so well that I was more than happy to go along for the ride." -- Regina de Búrca, The Future Fire
The other nominees in my category, also worth a read, are:
Black Bottle Man by Craig Russell, Great Plains Publications
Stealing Home by Hayden Trenholm, Bundoran Press
Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay, Viking Canada
Watch by Robert J. Sawyer, Penguin Canada
Damn we have a fine bunch of writers in Canada, don't we? Check out the other categories in the Aurora Awards, too. Fine bunch of writers/organizers/illustrators. Truly. It's an honour being among them.
