Praise for MORT(E)
An io9 Very Best Science Fiction And Fantasy Book Of 2015
A February 2015 Indie Next List Selection
An Amazon Best Book of January 2015
An IndieBound January 2015 Bestseller
"Mort(e) is complex, beguiling, and often bloody . . . [An] utterly absorbing debut."
--The Boston Globe
"Mort(e) catapults the reader into a wild, apocalyptic world . . . [Mort(e)'s] journey, set against the backdrop of an ideological war between pure rationality and mysticism, makes for a strangely moving story."
--The Washington Post
"With poignant flashes of a morality tale, this debut novel makes us rethink our relationship to all of Earth's creatures (since they may someday turn on us)."
--Time Out New York
"Marvelously droll . . . This novel is all kinds of crazy, but it wears its crazy so well."
"Mort(e) is funny, smart, well-written; it's already among the better debuts of the year."
"[A] first novel of notable depth and invention."
--Las Vegas Weekly
"[N]ot your ordinary kitty..."
--Ft. Worth Star-Telegram
"An epic science-fiction thriller . . . Mort(e) will stick with you long after you close the pages."
"Robert Repino's Mort(e) is, page after page, an infectious tale."
"[A] twisted, insane We3."
"In Repino's capable hands, Mort(e) is entertaining and intelligent science fiction that can be read as an adventure fantasy, but goes much deeper than that."
"What unfolds is told in a sarcastic and sometimes caustic style by a young writer of promising talent--by which I mean, a talent that is promised on the first page and then, after a series of ant mythologies, feline war tragedies, and inter-species friendships, firmly established by the end."
"Dealing with matters of dominance, loyalty, destiny, and justice, this engaging novel might have taken as its epigraph Alexander Pope's famous couplet, "I am his Highness' dog at Kew; / Pray tell me, sir, whose dog are you?" In the life of an uplifted cat, the reader sees his or her own quandary as a creature suspended uncomfortably halfway between nescience and angelic wisdom. [T]hought-provoking and tragedy-laden . . . Completely poignant and satisfying."
--Barnes & Noble Review
"[A] delightful mix of alien invasion and Orwellian parable."
"This is a wonderful book . . . ambitious, unusual, unclassifiable."
--Barnes & Noble Science Fiction and Fantasy Blog
"Devilishly entertaining . . . awfully good . . . a wild riff on interspecies warfare sure to make pet owners think twice the next time their tabby cat darts by. Imagine W. Bruce Cameron's silly and maudlin A Dog's Purpose recast as a violent and frightening post-apocalyptic global battle for the souls of Earth's survivors, layered with a messiah prophecy that makes The Matrix look simplistic by comparison."
"After a fantastical leap into an apocalypse of sentient animals, Mort(e) never looks back. Read this novel and you will never look at your pet the same way again."
--Daniel H. Wilson, author of Robopocalypse and Robogenesis
"That a novel about the war between ants and humans with house pets as warriors would be so stunningly believable and, above all, affecting, is a testament to what a wonderful book Robert Repino has written. Mort(e) is one of the craziest, most inventive novels I've read in a long time."
--James Scott, author of The Kept
"In our age of first person diary-like-entry novels, Mort(e) is both stunningly original and wonderfully heartfelt. It's a wild ride of a book from a skilled writer I will now be following."
--Shane Jones, author of Light Boxes and Crystal Eaters
"Mort(e) is wonderful and weird, never saccharine and always startling."
--Cat Rambo, author of Near + Far
"Combining elements of Orwellian parable and sci-fi/action thriller, Mort(e) is a tautly constructed indictment of much that is wrong with society, and a celebration of much that is right."
--Matthew Gallaway, author of The Metropolis Case
"Get ready for a post-apocalyptic adventure like no other in this tale of animals being transformed into two legged creatures that rise up to kill their masters. This is all the master plan of intelligent ants that have been building a Colony and plotting for years to start a utopia free of humans. Mort(e) is a former cat turned war hero but his true motivation is searching for his friend, a dog named Sheba. Will the Colony win the war against human violence, exploitation and religious superstitions or will the human bio-weapon EMSAH help all the earth's creatures?"
--Barbara Theroux, Fact & Fiction (Missoula, MT)
