Product Description

Product Description

In the parched, arid wastes of this far-flung Polity world, Snow is being hunted. With a prize on his head

and his life in danger, trust is a luxury he can’t afford. Hirald, pale and deadly in the blistering heat, is an

ambiguous presence. But who is she? What does she want from him?

Mankind has sought Snow’s secret for thousands of years, and blood will flow in the desert before it’s revealed.

This short tale is compelling, brutal and lingers long after the final word:

the perfect introduction to Neal Asher’s Polity universe fiction.

Praise for Neal Asher

‘Skillfully combines graphic action and sensitive characterisation’ GUARDIAN

‘This is top-notch stuff from an author well and truly at the top of his game’

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 Great Short Read 13 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great short story. The anti-hero main character is well drawn and the story is imaginative and set in a future universe which is alien but believable. Would like to read more about this character and follow the storyline back to earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Asher gem 25 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Neal Asher's books and this one I had missed somehow. A good read with well developed characters the only 'flaw' being it is too short!! If you don't know the author this is an excellent 1st read.
