Tinkered Starsong Book 1 in Tinkered Stars Universe
The aliens are coming for us and they want our voices.
New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger brings you a gloriously warm and unique scifi about the power of art, celebrity, and found family. The first in a completed trilogy.
Phex is a barista on a forgotten moon. Which is fine – he likes being ignored and he’s good at making drinks. Until one day an alien hears him singing and recruits him to become a god. Now Phex is thrust headfirst into the galaxy’s most cutthroat entertainment industry, where music is visible, the price of fame can kill, and the only friends he has want to be worshiped.
Welcome to the divinity. Where there is no difference between celebrity and religion, love and belief, acolyte and alien. Where the right kind of obsession can drive a person crazy or turn them divine.
Becky Chambers meets The Voice in the first of this YA space opera Tinkered Starsong trilogy in which the mysterious Dyesi are trying to take over the universe, but they’re doing it so beautifully we might just let them.

Praise for Divinity 36
“I've read plenty of great books recently, but somehow - even though they may be awesome reads in the moment - they tend to blend together in my mind after a while. Not so Divinity 36. Because I've never read quite anything like it. ”
“... trust me when I say this is probably the best book I will read this year. This will be the crown jewel in my Annual Favorites list. It’s a perfect 5 stars for me in every aspect. Three chapters into this book I went to Amazon to see if there was going to be a sequel, and I’m delighted to say there is. This is the first book in the Tinkered Starsong series and I don’t know how I’m going to endure the wait until August for book two. I really don’t. ”
“I didn’t expect that this would be one of my favorite Gail Carriger books, but it is and I can’t wait for the next one.”
“Gail Carriger’s imagination takes center stage in Divinity 36, her homage to space operas, the highs and pitfalls of ultimate competition, and the celebration of home, friendship, found family, and the stirrings of first love.”
“Carriger has created a fully-realized universe and drops the reader right into it. No info-dumps to be found here and I love that. I like to be immersed and learn the worlds as I settle into the story.”
