Review

Asher is a modern master of Sci-Fi * Starburst * With mind-blowing complexity, characters, and combat, Asher's work continues to combine the best of advanced cybertech and military SF * Publishers Weekly * 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 A richly imagined, exotic world, nonstop action, and unimaginable stakes - I couldn't put The Soldier down -- Yoon Ha Lee, author of Ninefox Gambit 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 Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain -- John Scalzi
