Product Description

Review

'A violence-filled tale redeemed by Cates's hard-edged narrative voice. There is no prologue detailing Cates's convoluted backstory; instead, Somers draws readers in with witty dialogue and trusts them to catch up. Cates and his protégé, Remy, have taken on a murder-for-hire assignment targeting a Bolivian despot following the disintegration of the System of Federated Nations. Their client pays them in information about a man on Cates's personal hit list. What could be a standard hard-boiled, noirish plot is enhanced by science fiction elements: Cates has been physically augmented, and one of the obstacles in his path is an Angel, a person with psionic ability and delusions of a divine mandate to rule the world. Readers will enjoy the imaginative tale' --Publishers Weekly

'A damn good time' --Sfx

'Somers is an author of some powerful genre talents' --The Bookbag

Book Description

The concluding volume in the Avery Cates series - a high-octane, action-packed slice of near-future noir.

Format: Paperback
Having originally come across Jeff as a recommendation from Lilith Saintcrow I was more than pleasantly surprised at the depth of character, the rich world building and of course the depth of human depravity to which the world has sunk. It's cleverly constructed and with so many positive lead characters in the literary world, its always refreshing to have the antihero at the centre of the story.

Over the series Avery has battled his way through, struggled for each breath and come damn close to death a number of times. Yet whilst realising that there were only so many stories to which a hero can lead it was always going to be interesting to see which way Jeff would take it. Here, everything collides in this fast paced Sci-Fi thriller as old enemies are at the centre as Avery struggles against the odds, the enemies and himself.

All in, with solid pace, good prose and cracking characterisation is a tale that readers of the series will devour and love to pieces. Great stuff and it's with a sadness to see Avery's last adventure as it really has been a highlight from start to finish.

The Final Evolution is the fifth book in the Avery Cates sci-fi series by Jeff Somers however this is the first I've read.

Avery Cates is your average hard-ass tough guy. There are lots of guns, augmented brains, avatars with downloaded artificial intelligence, psychics that can control your actions and did I mention guns? It's certainly action packed and has some good themes going on but I think I have missed out by starting this far in. It takes a while for any sort of plot to form and I think if you don't like action based fiction, you won't enjoy this. Whilst I would much rather have the back story of the plague (I still have no idea what it was) and Avery's history with Orel. I'm sure these won't be a problem for the seasoned fan.

There were moments that shined amongst the gunfire and the end redeemed it for me. Overall bit long and probably not my cup of tea, but one for the action sci-fi fan.

I received a copy from the publisher to review but all opinions are my own.

A superb ending to an excellent series. If you liked the other four you'll love this. Let's hope Hollywood doesn't get wind of Mr. Cates and ruin it! Long live Avery Cates.
