A widescreen-baroque grandeur... A maddening, dizzying and dazzling novel (SFX)
Hannu Rajaniemi is without question one of the smartest and most exciting writers working in science fiction as we speak, and I can't wait to see what he does next. (Tor.com)
The bottom line for The Causal Angel and the Jean Le Flambeur series: it's evocative and can be mind-bogglingly at times but this creates a highly addictive air around it, and once you get through to the fine details you will be amazed. This is must read science fiction. (The Book Plank)
With The Quantum Thief, Hannu Rajaniemi set a new standard for science fiction that dared to imagine a post-human future. With its sequel, The Fractal Prince, he successfully built on his narrative foundations to add a greater depth to his characters - not least the gentleman thief Jean le Flambeur - and an added strength to his ideas. So it's something of a relief to report that the trilogy's conclusion, The Causal Angel, doesn't disappoint. (The Skinny)
It's all things to all people, opening up to deliver whatever you want from it - action and adventure, memorable characters, rich stories and weighty themes. This is what Science Fiction should aspire to. (SF Crowsnest)
The author, who has a PhD in string theory, uses the tropes of the genre to present cutting-edge explorations of post-humanism, quantum physics and cybernetics. The plot is pell-mell, the theory intellectually challenging, and Flambeur appears as a fully rounded human being, with hopes and desires, strengths and flaws. (The Guardian)
The new novel from the most exciting new SF author of the last five years. 'Brilliant' GUARDIANSee all Product Description
