Review quote

This powerful work transcends the borders of morality, existence, and spacetime itself . . . Asher imagines incredible beings wielding vast alien technologies, devastating space battles, and mind-blowing science, but all ultimately hinges on Thorvald Spear and his very human choices. * Publishers Weekly * What Asher delivers here is state-of-the-art SF on so many levels . . . a compelling, smart read -- Locus on Dark Intelligence A stunning conclusion to the Transformation series . . . A mind-blowingly brilliant read! * Worlds in Ink * Signature space opera from Neal Asher: breakneck pacing, high-tech science, bizarre alien creatures, and gritty, dangerous far-future worlds. The high caliber complexity of the Polity universe and characters put the Transformation series and Asher on the same plane as Iain Banks, Alastair Reynolds, and Iain Macauley. Mind-bending tech, creatures, and action generate a hot-blooded plot overlaid with a smart coolness of writing that has gained Neal Asher recognition in the SF/F community as one of the strongest space opera authors. * Rising Shadow *show more
