Outsmart Your Enemies. Outrun the Galaxy.
“Just please, remember what I told you. Run. Don’t stop running for anything.”
Tina never worries about being 'ordinary'--she doesn't have to, since she's known practically forever that she's not just Tina Mains, average teenager and beloved daughter. She's also the keeper of an interplanetary rescue beacon, and one day soon, it's going to activate, and then her dreams of saving all the worlds and adventuring among the stars will finally be possible. Tina's legacy, after all, is intergalactic--she is the hidden clone of a famed alien hero, left on Earth disguised as a human to give the universe another chance to defeat a terrible evil.
But when the beacon activates, it turns out that Tina's destiny isn't quite what she expected. Things are far more dangerous than she ever assumed--and everyone in the galaxy is expecting her to actually be the brilliant tactician and legendary savior Captain Thaoh Argentian, but Tina....is just Tina. And the Royal Fleet is losing the war, badly--the starship that found her is on the run and they barely manage to escape Earth with the planet still intact.
Luckily, Tina is surrounded by a crew she can trust, and her best friend Rachel, and she is still determined to save all the worlds. But first she'll have to save herself.
Buckle up your seatbelt for this thrilling YA sci-fi adventure set against an intergalactic war from internationally bestselling author Charlie Jane Anders.
"Charlie Jane Anders has a rich and delicious talent—and a wickedly funny voice that the world really needs right now.” —LeVar Burton, Reading Rainbow, Roots, Star Trek
“Victories Greater Than Death is a gorgeous romp through the galaxy, full of fascinating aliens, true friendship, swashbuckling, space battles, and love.” —Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author
“A stunning, strange, and highly entertaining novel, one I hope ushers in a new wave of YA science fiction.” —Mark Oshiro , award-winning author of Anger is a Gift
“I loved it, so much fun - you have more ideas in a paragraph than most people put in an entire book [and] a fun spaceship adventure. Wonderful work!” —Javier Grillo-Marxuach, writer and co-executive producer of The 100
"Charlie Jane Anders has been quietly building a reputation as one of the most imaginative writers working in sci-fi and fantasy today, and Victories Greater Than Death just confirms it. While it’s technically young adult, it’s one of those young adult books that adults will love just as much... Few writers today can make incredible concepts seem as lived-in and natural as Anders, and Tina is a richly developed and wholly original protagonist in a story filled with great ideas and well-executed suspense and adventure." - BookBub
