Product Description

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 onboard, 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 prize -- seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. This stolen gene-bank data will come 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.

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.

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

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars opinion of the Jupiter War book
For a demigod, Alan Saul made some foolish decisions at the end and his dispatch of both the "Fist" and the "Command" appeared (to me anyway) to be a bit contrived
