4.0 out of 5 stars Space Opera, 25 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyed this 3rd part as much as the parts 1/2.
Good continuity from book to book. Enjoyed the characters who didn't waiver in thier opinions, likes & dislikes.
Shame the story doesn't carry on but a good point to bring things to a close.
Note that a few loose ends could lead to further adventures.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Personal view, 28 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Empire of Light (Hardcover)
I enjoy "Space Opera" and hard SF. This book was the final part of three and well worth the read. A blizzard of thought provoking ideas. Laced through with a good plot and good ending.
Only a small moan, don't let it put you off. When the plot led to an impossible cul de sac the villain or hero would somehow gain a sometimes implausible new gift or relevant info. This never being covered in the proceeding pages.
Never the less a cracking read, which leaves one waiting more from the author.

Orbus (Spatterjay 3)
Orbus (Spatterjay 3)

Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Asher does it again, 2 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Orbus (Spatterjay 3) (Hardcover)
As an avid Asher reader i'm probably too biased to be objective but here goes!

Orbus seeks to flesh out the Spatterjay legend as well as extend the exploration of all things Prador. It does this in usual Asher style, plenty of action, gore & general mayhem!

However i wonder if something as old as the Jain DNA would be defeated by the use of huge force. You would think some subtlety had been gene-engineered in!

However this is a tiny criticism, Asher leaves plenty of "what if's" for further adventures.

A great read!
