Description: " 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
