Book Description

10 April 2014 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 No More Mr. Mice Guy 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad ending to the trilogy 22 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good ending, maybe a little to tidy but good all the same.
In some ways it reminded me of one of the older sci-fi novels, with hints of EE Doc Smith stories of ever increasing power on both sides.

Will there be a follow on set of books? I think so, and am looking forward to seeing where the journey leads.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars great hard scifi 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want a wonderful suspense story allied to really good technology then this is for you. There are some really clever uses of current "real" science with what might happen in the not too distant future. I have not read a great deal of Mr Asher but I hope to read most of his stuff.

His characterisation of some of the people involved is a little contrived and his balancing of the human side if a

Typical Asher, action and edge of seat survival stuff all the way. A continuation of the 2 books so not so stand alone as the Polity series of books but still very enjoyable and continued in The Engineer ReConditioned

4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying conclusion 22 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Neal Asher's writing for a while now, the Polity novels were all excellent reads. This latest Owner series took a little while for me to get into as they had a different feel to them, less immediate and visceral than his earlier novels. Once I got into them though I was hooked and that remains the case with this latest and final book in the trilogy - although the ending leaves the storyline open for more books and I hope that will be the case.

For me the great thing about science-fiction is when it tackles big question, at the core of Jupiter War (and the preceeding novels) is trans-humanism, or more specifically the consequences of melding humans with technology. Alan Saul is an interesting character as he balances his once human self with the practicalities of being an AI and integrated not only with his ship but the robots within. We also see the beginnings of others taking similar steps, although I would have liked to have seen a bit more done with these characters, especially the comlife operatives.

This is all set against a dystopian background where the leader of Earth considers humanity a pestilence upon the Earth and uses extreme measures to restore nature to a dying Earth. Despite the advanced technology life for most is a dismal affair and this contrasts with the microcosm of humanity on Saul's ship.

Space battles are also a fun part of many science fiction tales and here we have not only an entertaining battle, but also a well thought out one. The considerations in the engagement provided a few interesting insights, not only for the technology involved but the tactics needed to utilise them.

What we have here is a damn fine science fiction read, it's fast paced and provides a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy. Although as I said at the beginning the ending did leave me wanting more and I hope that will be the case.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great finish to this trilogy 20 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover
Jupiter War is the third novel in Asher’s Owner series, following on from The Departure and Zero Point. While the series took a while to really find its feet in The Departure, Zero Point managed to continue the story to great effect while adding some rather interesting concepts to the mix. Jupiter War takes all that has gone before and brings us to the end-game of the Owner’s beginnings, taking all aspects laid down in the previous volumes to deliver a satisfying and entertaining conclusion.

As with Zero Point, Asher doesn’t hang around in getting us into the action, with Jupiter War jumping straight into the meat of the story. Alan Saul, the Owner, is on Mars to rescue his sister, Var Delex, and while there he plans on utilising the Antares base to his own ends: turning Argus from asteroid station to interstellar spaceship. On Earth Serene Gallahad is dictator, implementing her justice as and when she sees fit, taking no prisoners in the process. But she still doesn’t possess the gene bank needed to kick start the biosphere into life again, with her dream of rebuilding the planet reliant on getting her hands on it. With events unfolding on Argus and Earth, and both parties focused on what they must do to meet their goals, it is only a matter of time before the final deciding battle takes place.

What works in Jupiter War is the way Asher has pulled together all elements from the previous novels into a coherent whole, answering questions that are raised and continuing the character development nicely and without any unwarranted changes. Saul continues on the path to godhood, combining ever more with technology and moving away from his human side. This is particularly evident in his dealings with those on board Argus, even with his sister, Var.
