Product description

Review

Fast, furious, violent, slightly tongue-in-cheek (I think), and a whole lot of fun that makes 1984 seem like a children’s tea party . . . the start of another promising series from Asher. Go on, dive in, you won’t be disappointed. (British Fantasy Society)

Delivers plenty of thrills, and the climax also sets up a very intriguing status quo for the second volume. (SFX)

Action packed and thrilling, The Departure is a must for all fans of contemporary science fiction who haven’t experienced Asher’s visceral novels before. (We Love This Book)

The Orwellian intro had me utterly hooked right from the start. I simply couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end. (WorldsInInk)

Fast, dramatic stuff . . . this is a book with lots of Asher trademarks: rapid pace, great action, messy consequences. (SFFWorld)

I had an absolute blast with this book . . . his work really does get better and better. (Falcata Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
