Product description

Review

"Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain."--New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

"With mind-blowing complexity, characters, and combat, Asher's work continues to combine the best of advanced cybertech and military SF."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"A richly imagined, exotic world, nonstop action, and unimaginable stakes--I couldn't put The Soldier down."--Yoon Ha Lee, author of Ninefox Gambit

"Neal Asher's coruscating mix of epic space opera, weaponised Darwinism and high-stakes intrigue channels the primal flame of deep-core science fiction." --Paul McAuley, author of Four Hundred Billion Stars

"The Soldier provides everything we demand from Asher: a beautifully complex universe where AIs, aliens and post-humans scheme and struggle--magnificently awesome. Then Asher turns it up to eleven."--Peter F. Hamilton

"I had thought with the Transformation trilogy (Dark Intelligence, War Factory, Infinity Engine) that Asher had maxed out what could be done with the Polity setting--that the near-metaphysical implications of the fate of Penny Royal constituted a kind of narrative event horizon. I think I might have been mistaken."--Russell Letson, Locus

"In addition to elaborate space battles between gigantic warships and spectacular descriptions of technology, Asher excels at "humanizing" his intelligent machines."--Booklist

"Neal Asher just doesn't have the ability to write a book that doesn't have an abundance of complex technology, diverse alien species, mind-bending science, and just flat out entertaining story lines. . . . [he] has gradually become one of the great writers of Space Opera today, right up there with the likes of Peter F. Hamilton and Alastair Reynolds."--Out of this World SFF Reviews

"A mind-blowing start to the Rise of the Jain trilogy. . . . takes all the best elements from the Polity universe and weaves them together into a narrative that makes it feel as if everything that came before was only meant to set up the groundwork for this moment."--Worlds In Ink
