The Old Lie
The Old Lie | Claire G. Coleman
10 posts | 4 read | 7 to read
Shane Daniels and Romany Zetz have been drawn into a war that is not their own. Lives will be destroyed, families will be torn apart. Trust will be broken. When the war is over, some will return to a changed world. Will they discover that glory is a lie? Claire G. Coleman's new novel takes us to a familiar world to again ask us what we have learned from the past. The Old Lie might not be quite what you expect. Praise for Terra Nullius: 'surprising and unforgettable' - Publisher's Weekly 'moving and original' - Weekend Australian 'impossible to ignore' - Books and Publishing 'unflinching' - Sydney Review of Books 'timely' - Adelaide Review

Coleman is ingenious. Spec fiction is not one of my favourite genres, but f^~! me, this was good.
Whilst it was fast-paced from the get-go I had to re-read the first third & write down the characters. It‘s not that there are a lot, but Coleman cleverly reveals limited info making them feel somewhat nebulous at first.
But PLEASE READ ON, because it will be worth it.
I cannot wait to see what this brilliant writer comes up with next. #ozfiction

Hooked_on_books I can‘t wait to get my hands on this! I‘m not sure when it comes out in the US. I thought Terra Nullius was genius—lulling you into thinking one thing then tearing back the curtain of what‘s really happening. Sounds like this one might do a similar thing. 4w
MrsMalaprop Oh my word yes @Hooked_on_books. So clever & you can‘t say much about it without spoiling it for those who haven‘t read it. Hope you can get your hands on it in the US soon. 4w
Freespirit Sounds fantastic!! 4w
Rissreads I'm so excited to read this! I'm so happy you loved it! 4w

Mehso-so

Military fiction isn‘t my thing, but I‘d say that this is still an important book. I found the last part of the book the most interesting

This #litereads week has come to an end as we finished Noplace by Claire G. Coleman. This dark science fiction story of a utopian colony collapsing on itself is a fascinating read that gave me a lot to think about. I definitely enjoyed myself, and I look forward to reading more from the author. My full review is in the link below. Drop us a comment to let us know what you thought of this story!

Did you guys know that the author of the amazing Terra Nullius, @Clairegcoleman is right here with us on Litsy?!? 😲 Not only that, she has another book (tagged) coming out in Australia in September! I hope we‘ll get to see it stateside sooner than later. I know I can‘t wait to get my hands on it.

vivastory I haven't read her before. I noticed she labels herself as speculative fiction, I've been on a bit of a speculative fic bender. Will definitely check her out! 4mo
Hooked_on_books @vivastory Terra Nullius is her debut. I‘m quite sure it will make it to my best books of the year list. It‘s haunting. 4mo
