Book Description

26 Sep 2013 Owner Trilogy 3
Alan Saul is now part human and part machine, and our solar system isn't big enough to hold him. He craves the stars, but can't leave yet. His sister Var is trapped on Mars, on the wrong side of a rebellion, and Saul's human side won't let her die. He must leave Argus Station to stage a dangerous rescue -- but mutiny is brewing on board, as Saul's robots make his crew feel increasingly redundant. Serene Galahad will do anything to prevent Saul's escape. Earth’s ruthless dictator hides her crimes from a cowed populace as she readies new warships for pursuit. She aims to crush her enemy in a terrifying display of interstellar violence. Meanwhile, The Scourge limps back to earth, its crew slaughtered, its mission to annihilate Saul a disaster. There are survivors, but while one seeks Galahad's death, Clay Ruger will negotiate for his life. Events build to a climax as Ruger holds humanity’s greatest asset -- seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. This stolen Gene Bank data is offered at a price, but what will Galahad pay for humanity’s future?

More About the Author

Neal Asher lives sometimes in England, sometimes in Crete and mostly at a keyboard. Having over eighteen books published he has been accused of overproduction (despite spending far too much time ranting on his blog, cycling off fat, and drinking too much wine) but doesn't intend to slow down just yet.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

WAR IS COMING TO THE DEPTHS OF SPACE

Alan Saul is now part human, part machine, and our solar system isn't big enough to hold him. However, his sister is trapped on Mars and Saul's human side can't let her die. He must leave Argus Station to stage a dangerous rescue - but mutiny looms as Saul's robots make his crew feel redundant. Also, Earth's Serene Galahad will do anything to prevent Saul's escape. He conspired to free the planet's cowed populace, so she's planning to crush her enemy in a terrifying display of interstellar violence.

Meanwhile, the Scourge limps back to Earth, devastated by Galahad's earlier attempt to annihilate Saul. Survivor Clay Ruger now knows too much and his life is at risk. But he holds humanity's greatest asset - seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. But will Galahad pay for Earth's future?

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent finale to the series 24 Dec 2013
By Gareth Simon TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Jupiter War, Neal Asher, Tor, 2013, 471pp.

This is an excellent finale to the `Owner' series by this author, and continues directly on from the end of the previous novel, Zero Point (Owner Trilogy 2). It is an excellently constructed novel, as Argus Station moves from Mars, to the far side of the Sun (from Earth), to the Asteroid Belt, and to the moons of Jupiter; while the Scourge returns to Earth, and Earth builds up its defences and a squadron of attack ships, and mutinies are plotted on Argus and aboard Earth's space dock, culminating with the twin climaxes of a space battle in Jupiter orbit and the mutiny on, and attack of the Scourge against, the space dock - which has Selene Galahad aboard. The story moves with clockwork precision, as vast distances and long periods of time have to be carefully choreographed to ensure that everyone is where they need to be at the appropriate time, while also maintaining the interpersonal relationships and character development of the large cast. Everyone and everything fits together like clockwork, as you would expect from the master-craftsman that is Neal Asher. Oh, and there is plenty of death and destruction on an epic scale, also as you would expect from Mr Asher.

3.0 out of 5 stars not his greatest 7 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the first book but i find i'm reading this just to get to the end not so thrilling.
However neal asher does inject many points to ponder on the state of the human race politic and other thought provoking ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not as good as the first 2 books 3 Jan 2014
By Needler
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Jupiter War is slower paced than both 'Departure' and 'Break Point' and the action is much less here than in the previous volumes. That said the build up is all right although it was almost boring in places, wheras the other 2 books are very fast paced with lots of action, blood and gore - both with very good plots. If you've read the other 2 installments, you'll be wanting to read this - it's good, but not as good as the others

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit slow 17 Oct 2013
By JAJPD
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really struggling to get through this one although I feel I should having managed to work through the other two - but have to admit it's getting to be more work than pleasure. The Owner trilogy doesn't compare to Asher's other work, which certainly isn't literature but is (usually) fast-moving and holds one's attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately Worth waiting for! 11 Oct 2013
By Pete B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Congratulations to Neal Asher for a fantastic conclusion of yet another great body of work! I'm really in awe of writers like him who have such incredible imaginations and the ability to weave together such intricate and fascinating plots that you can lose yourself in. Such talent...

I really enjoyed the first 2 books (The Departure & Zero Point) of this series. I still don't understand some of the negativity in many of the reviews for The Departure, I thought it was a really engaging and credible storyline / concept. The long wait for the final installment in the series was well worth it. The only disappointment is that it was the end of the story... Having said that, I can see how Neal could continue to develop the plot further with a follow on work so there is some hope that we haven't heard the last of "The Owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to form 10 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After the Technician which I thought was quite disappointing I'm pleased to see the author back to decent form. Following the Polity series was always going to be hard and I wasn't convinced initially but this is a good romp and the series is very good. Some good and believable characters after the dreadful ones in the Technician. I would hope that the next book goes back to the style and plotting of the early Polity/Skinner series. Those works made the author a must have hardback buy. But some of the later stuff became almost written to suit demographics or a bit PC and hence lost the edge they once had and so I stopped buying till the went to the library. But this series has rekindled my enthusiasm for Asher's writing and subject

Although not as gripping as the previous two books, still a damn good read. Glad there was such a satisfying finish to the trilogy.

By Mr. Roy Ellor VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, I loved this book and had to devour it at one sitting. The previously hyperviolent story of Alan Saul, The Committee and Serene Galahad gets into the endgame for one side or the other, and Saul opens the story on Mars where he is effecting the rescue of his sister Var.

From there we launch into an intelligent, deftly plotted chase round the solar system as both sides prepare for what is obviously going to be a final confrontation. Saul with his growing spaceship and Galahad with the resources of a cowed Earth to bring to bear on him.

One aspect of Neal Asher's talent at hard sci-fi like this is that it is believable, paced beautifully and has all the requisite gory battle sequences that one would expect. Jupiter War doesn't disappoint; in fact it introduces some deft tricks towards the end that are obviously the product of informed imagination. I won't say what as that would be a huge spoiler!

There is also a supporting cast who occasionally plot against their relative superiors, as well as one or two people who may not be quite all they seem. The side story of Messina clone Alex is one such example as that young man finds himself in the situation where his life needs totally re-purposing and the blocks installed in his mind are slowly removed so his past can break through.

Great Science Fiction as I have come to expect from Mr Asher, this time with plenty of intrigue and the odd red herring. The ending leaves it open to continue the Owner story forwards, giving Neal two discrete universes in which to tell his stories. Excellent read but make sure you read the first two volumes to ensure maximum enjoyment!
