“In the Orbit of Sirens by T.A. Bruno is a bone-chilling science-fiction thriller that warps fiction, fantasy, and reality in wonderful and scary ways … It’s hard not to get sucked in from the get-go as fantasy and science mix to create a delightfully balanced and quick-paced story … Although it is a dark and atmospheric story, I think it ultimately shows the best in its characters and humanity in general, so it’s perfect for anyone who has even a little bit of interest in the science-fiction genre.” — Literary Titan ★★★★★ (Gold Book Award Winner)

“World-building is clearly Bruno’s forte in this gripping debut set on an Earth-like planet where the past and the present, separated by three centuries, comes together poignantly. This grim tale manages to exude both hope and endless imagination in equal measure without getting too philosophical (though I would’ve liked more of the latter) all while drawing eerily on our very own modern-day concerns around very real threats like famine and disease. Bruno excels at painting an objective display here; one which showcases that while the grass ought to be greener on the other side, it most often is not the case in more ways than one. The human characters and their will to live are to be commended, as is their violent clash with an at-times horrifying alien species in their attempts to do so. I think it’s safe to say Bruno has laid the groundwork for a very special trilogy, if that indeed is what it ends up being… and I hope that it does.” —B.T. Keaton, author of the award-winning novel Transference ★★★★★

“Author T. A. Bruno delivers a dystopian delight which is truly out of this world … The work is well suited and accessible to all readers, tense without being graphic, emotive without overreaching. Overall, I would highly recommend In the Orbit of Sirens as a must-read for sci-fi and dystopian fans who want to embark on an original and engrossing new series. Unmissable.” —Readers’ Favorite ★★★★★ (5-star seal)

“T.A. Bruno’s debut novel packs a lot of great ideas and inspiring world-building. He gives us exotic extraterrestrials, fabulous technology, and some mind-spinning science – as well as engaging action scenes and an immersive plot. He brings all arcs together in an exciting finale. The ending is satisfying but leaves space to explore the universe in the future.” — The International Review of Books (Gold Badge of Achievement Winner)

“An action-packed adventure from top to bottom. Bruno bends reality at will, with an imagination that fires on all cylinders throughout the story … Setting up a seemingly endless supply of new worlds to build and histories to create, In the Orbit of Sirens is an impressive debut from T.A. Bruno.” — Self-Publishing Review, ★★★★
