The BookViral Review:

Delivering sharp, humorous and above all intriguing nuggets of prose, The Alas League is a read that will linger in your imagination for days and weeks to come. 

It’s one of those rare reads that is not only original – something that is increasingly hard to find in the written word – but has tonal shifts you won’t expect with Falardeau refusing to succumb to a tiresome commercial formula for his science fiction series.

Readers can take it for granted that Falardeau’s characters are audaciously funny and inventively imagined. They’re always tied to his narrative’s drive and nothing, no matter how surreal, is superfluous. 

He knows how to linger on character conversations and situational interactions to evoke chemistry between them and yet running beneath the lively banter and knockabout slapstick is a shifting sense of melancholy, at times even despair over the way we see ourselves in the universe and the world we live in, which adds a surprising amount of depth.

Like most genre reads “The Alas League” is working things through in an extremely broad way and having a grand time doing it with Falardeau satirizing standard SF conventions whilst self-deprecating wit inoculates it against an inflated sense of self-importance. In short, The Alas League wears its themes on its sleeve with a large grin jabbing thumbs at itself and it’s a credit to Falardeau that it makes for a superbly entertaining read!

Comic Science Fiction at its very best The Alas League proves a cracking start to Falardeau’s series and it is unreservedly recommended!
