Product description

Review

a novel that works brilliantly as a space adventure and also reads, touchingly, almost as an atheist's reflection on why a kind of optimistic agnosticism may be a useful approach to finding contentment ― SFX

A tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story. ― GUARDIAN

An utterly involving thriller, with a mystery that unfolds under steely control. ― DAILY MAIL

It's grand, involving and full of light and wonder. Poseidon's Wake is one of the best sci-fi novels of the year ― Sci-Fi Now

his finest moment yet and a glorious conclusion of the trilogy. A wonderful book and best that British SF has to offer at the moment ― Upcoming 4 Me

Reynolds has not only rise to the challenge, but upped the ante. ― SFX

Although a long book, with so much story to fit in there is a brevity to the text which makes it an easy read which can be enjoyed as a standalone even though it satisfactorily revisits and resolves the majority of the threads from the previous novels ― Geek Chocolate

Intriguing speculation about human identity and potential. ― PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Possibly the best space opera I've read. ― SF REVU

a well realised sci-fi universe, with plausible character ― SF&F Reviews

Having completed the trilogy I now want to return to its beginning and re-read. Alastair Reynolds is one of my very favourite authors, every book is a much-anticipated event, and withPoseidon's Wake he shows yet again why that is. I loved every single page. ― For Winter's Nights

Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages. ― BOOKLIST

Transhumans, talking elephants, inscrutable aliens and good old fashioned spaceship fights all contribute to a breathtaking adventure ― THE SUN

A vivid universe with beautiful settings and engaging, dynamic characters ...Fans of sf will definitely want to pick up this title, especially if they also enjoy mysteries or police procedurals. ― LIBRARY JOURNAL

A revelation that satisfies the demands of SF and mystery. ― LOCUS

If you're looking for a cracking sci-fi mystery, pick this one up. ― SF AND F REVIEWS

Incredible story telling and all plaudits are greatly deserved. ― GEEK SYNDICATE

Cerebral but gripping, Elysium Fire is a must for Reynolds fans and a recommended read. ― SCIFINOW

A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF ― The Guardian

Review

It's rare to find a writer with sufficient nerve and stamina to write novels that are big enough to justify using words like "revelation" and "redemption". Reynolds pulls it off - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

A mastersinger of the Space Opera - THE TIMES

A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF - The Guardian
