About the Author
Dr Simon Morden is a bona fide rocket scientist, having degrees in geology and planetary geophysics, and is one of the few people who can truthfully claim to have held a chunk of Mars in his hands. Simon Morden lives in Gateshead with a fierce lawyer, two unruly children and a couple of miniature panthers.

If you're a fan of the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG game (from the '90's), then you'll be wanting to read some of this. If you like Halting State by Charles Stross, chances are, you'll enjoy this.
A post-apocalyptic London, the protagonist is a Russian genius slowly becoming a cyborg (one major injury at a time), with a gun-toting, ex-nun for a wife, and his best mate is an AI (and is buried in a bunker). Mix in right-wing nutters in the good ol' USA wanting to bring hell-on-earth to anyone not in the US (especially when there's an AI on the loose), well, that's one hell of a combination.
If I was looking for any failings in this book, it's that there's just too many women prepared to throw themselves at the Sam (the main character)... especially considering how much of his body is failing!
I have to say I've really enjoyed this trilogy. All three books are action packed but they don't feel excessively padded out. Petrovich can keep moving through is incredibly bad days when other people would just drop, but we are given an explanation of how that is done in this book. I thought that it was a great ending to the series with a satisfying conclusion and Petrovich has grown as a person through each novel. Having said that though if there were ever any more Petrovich novels I'd be happy to read them as the first person narrative makes him a character that sticks with you.
One of the things that made me pick up these books was the rather striking an unusual covers which are so very different from other SciFi novels. However once you know Petrovich's character their use makes sense. It's also been nice to get a full series in a short period of time and not have to wait three years to finish a story. If you enjoy scifi and alternative universes then you'll probably like these books.
Finally I'd say its one of the best sci-fi series I've read, keeped up the pace and interest all the way through - added to the list of ones to watch

For some reason this did not grab hold of my brain and force me to read the book through some sort of sympathetic compulsion in the same way the first tow books did. Read morePublished on 26 Aug. 2014 by EvilEdna
