Sci Fi Chick.com

"Clever, kinetic, and personal, O'Nan's prose will keep your bedside lamp burning till the wee hours."

Pierce Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"With fast-paced action and intricate plotting, WINDERS is a Tenet meets The Matrix thrill ride that I could not put down. O'Nan is a rare talent, transitioning seamlessly from script to prose with vibrant characters, addictive world-building, and a story that leaps off the page and onto the screen."

Gretchen McNeil, author of Ten, #murdertrending, and Get Even

"Someone has finally written a novel about how to make the world fairer. Ryan O’Nan has written a book about how to rewrite Time, and save the people we care about. And of course, there’s a price to be paid. The question then becomes: how far would you go, before the powers that really be turn up to lay down the law. WINDERS is a fast, fun, and intricately-plotted story about fate, second chances, and the risks we have to take to have a life worth having."

Simon R. Green, New York Times bestselling author

"Calling WINDERS an exceptional debut would be doing it a disservice. It’s more than that; it’s an excellent book, with crisp, vivid prose that jumps off the page."

Michael Mammay, national bestselling author of Colonyside

“An exciting debut from O’Nan: fast-paced action and dangerous conspiracies that will leave you impatient for book two.”
