Review

Praise for the Rise of the Jain Series

"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

General Praise for Neal Asher:

"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

"Asher is a modern master of sci-fi." --Starburst magazine

"A wide-screen special-effects extravaganza, a space opera featuring gods and monsters . . . Doc Smith and Olaf Stapledon in a blender, turned up to eleven, with the contents splattering across the ceiling." ?Russell Letson, Locus

"Asher has an amazing talent for world-building, for writing larger-than-life characters, for weaving gripping plots and for imagining exotic alien races and wonderful technologies. Huge ships! Big weapons! Space battles! Ground battles! Treason! Revenge! This is New Space Opera at its best." --Sense of Wonder

"Hardboiled, fast-paced space opera . . . Asher's books are similar to the world of Iain M. Banks' Culture universe, but the Polity is arguably a much darker and more vicious environment--and all the better for it." --The Register
