Crash, bang, wallop. In space. Big ships and narrow escapes. I need a gridlink to Neil Asher's mind to have any chance of remembering the details of who all the characters and motivations are. But the ride was fun, if confusing and inconclusive. Leading man, Agent Ian Cormac, needs a life. But maybe he's not human after all....

Interesting technologies and concepts, an interesting hero, and some great set-piece battles on both cosmic and human scales - but the complexity of the multiple plot lines and the large cast of minor characters work against Asher's otherwise impressive and entertaining imagination.

Aliens, technology, vast space ships, warfare and politics - this belongs in the guilty pleasure category for me. This is my second Asher novel I think - and while I enjoy the pacy action, multiple plot lines, impossibly cool gadgets and mind-bending extraterrestrial phenomena, it isn't quite up to Iain Banks' genius. In particular, the cast of thousands becomes very difficult to keep track of, and the technologies and concepts are sometimes introduced with little explanation or reminder. And I suppose I'm also starting to want a little more development and depth of character from Asher's hero, Agent Cormac - perhaps that comes in later books in the series. All minor complaints, but they add up to minus one star.… (mais)

This is a fairly zippy page-turner, with some cool technologies, lots of weaponised action, lethal androids and aliens, and a slightly vaguely outlined social/political system run by artificial intelligence. It falls down a bit on the rather shallow characterisations, a somewhat unsympathetic lead character, and an anticlimatic and unclear ending (perhaps followed up in later books in the series?). In places it could also do with more clarity in explaining some basic background on the technology and society a little more too (for example I would have liked more on the shuriken, and on the history and basic idea of the Polity, and maybe more on the Sparkind too). However, I enjoyed it as it rattled along and it's very easy to read quickly.… (mais)
