ZERO HOUR MEANS WAR

Rumor Mora fears two things: hellhounds too strong for him to kill, and failure. Jude Welton has two dreams: for humans to stop killing monsters, and for his strange abilities to vanish.

But in no reality should a boy raised to love monsters fall for a boy raised to kill them.

Nyx Llorca keeps two secrets: the moon speaks to her, and she’s in love with Dahlia, her best friend. Braeden Tennant wants two things: to get out from his mother's shadow, and to unlearn Epsilon's darkest secret.
They’ll both have to commit treason to find the truth.

During one twenty-seven-hour night, if they can’t stop the war between the colonies and the monsters from becoming a war of extinction, the things they wish for will never come true, and the things they fear will be all that’s left.

Praise

"In addition to its captivating humans-versus-monsters premise, the book features an admirably broad treatment of gender and sexuality—LGBT and asexual characters serve as the norm rather than the exception—in this futuristic world. [...]  An open, imaginative work of YA science fiction." Kirkus Reviews

5 stars: "Tristina Wright presents a world that will at once thrill and horrify readers and make the most vulnerable of us feel unambiguously welcome and valid." Meredith Russo, author of critically acclaimed If I Was Your Girl

As one of Tristina Wright's beta readers, I've had the honor and privilege of seeing this story in multiple stages. It has come a long way since the first version I read, and there have been some fundamental plot changes along with little tweaks here and there. But in every form its taken, this s... ...more

"Propaganda and hearsay are elegant weapons for killing questions."

I put off writing this review for a while, because I couldn't figure out exactly what I wanted to say, or how to say it. This book is being advertised as "queer teens in space", and that's accurate, but that's honestly the least... ...more

27 HOURS by Tristina Wright has everything I could ever want in a YA scifi novel – a visually stunning foreign planet, human space colonies, a fascinating indigenous alien race (LOVE that horns figure into the alien hierarchy), SPACE DRAGONS (with 6 legs!), and action that starts right up and doe... ...more

Representation so good I'm going to hand sell this to everyone who walks into my store. I love seeing myself represented in books.

I've said it before - I don't like sci-fi. But I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book and had heard amazing things about the diversity, so I read it. And it's become one of my favorite books ever.

By Wylan October 03, 2017

I ended up really enjoying this book! Once I heard about it, I knew I had to read it ASAP. A cast made up of entirely LGBTQ+ characters? Set in a sci-fi world? Sounds like my kinda thing!

That said, it did take me a bit to get into it. The action starts right away, and I totally can understand wh... ...more

About the author

Tristina Wright

Tristina Wright is a blue-haired bisexual with anxiety and opinions. She’s also possibly a mermaid, but no one can get confirmation. She fell in love with science fiction and fantasy at a young age and frequently got caught writing in class instead of paying attention. She enjoys worlds with monsters and kissing and monsters kissing. She married a nerd who can build computers and make the sun shine with his smile. Most days, she can be found drinking coffee from her favorite chipped mug and making up more stories for her wombfruit, who keep life exciting and unpredictable.
