Book Description

The stunning conclusion to this high-octane space opera - where war is coming to the depths of space...

Book Description

Alan Saul is now part human and part machine, and our solar system isn't big enough to hold him. He craves the stars, but can't leave yet. His sister Var is trapped on Mars, on the wrong side of a rebellion, and Saul's human side won't let her die. He must leave Argus Station to stage a dangerous rescue -- but mutiny is brewing on board, as Saul's robots make his crew feel increasingly redundant. Serene Galahad will do anything to prevent Saul's escape. Earth’s ruthless dictator hides her crimes from a cowed populace as she readies new warships for pursuit. She aims to crush her enemy in a terrifying display of interstellar violence. Meanwhile, The Scourge limps back to earth, its crew slaughtered, its mission to annihilate Saul a disaster. There are survivors, but while one seeks Galahad's death, Clay Ruger will negotiate for his life. Events build to a climax as Ruger holds humanity’s greatest asset -- seeds to rebuild a dying Earth. This stolen Gene Bank data is offered at a price, but what will Galahad pay for humanity’s future?

I'm trying not to judge this by reference to the Polity stuff, since it deserves a review on its own merits. But that's tricky. Expectations have been high, and books 1 and 2 in the Owner trilogy weren't really thrilling me. Hard to fault someone who looks at the author's other works and hopes for more. I don't apologise for holding Asher to a high standard; he's the new Banks, for me - not as good a writer, but a wonderful imagination and a great scope make up for a few stumbles in the prose.

In short: it's a 750 page book told in 1500 pages. Spoilers ahead.

The scope is never broad enough. You can boil the story down to a handful of plot points. The main character was missing for half of book 2. Var did almost nothing in the first 2 books. It isn't space opera; it's more like space soap-opera. There isn't enough there to engross the reader. This is a Lord of the Rings length saga, with all the epic span of a single Dr Who episode. Shit just does not happen.

We don't see enough of our protagonist; and what we do see makes us as cross as it makes us happy. I get it, that we might need to have a hero with foibles; it's harder to get on with one who's a plonker. And we have almost no other likeable characters. Which means that the villain has to be elevated to such a fever-pitch of unpleasantness that we just need to add a "Cruella De---" as a prefix to her name. She's paper thin. And really, how many sadistic killings do we need, to persuade us we don't like her? Padding is the name of the game, it seems.

If you like fast moving, well written sci-if then anything by Neal Asher is worth reading. A word of warning, it's gritty stuff but way better than most sci-fi books.

Compared to the other two books, I didn't find this one as edgy, and I felt the ending was all tied up slightly too neatly for my liking. It's got further scope, but was unexplored in this book anyway.

Jupiter War is the third novel in Asher’s Owner series, following on from The Departure and Zero Point. While the series took a while to really find its feet in The Departure, Zero Point managed to continue the story to great effect while adding some rather interesting concepts to the mix. Jupiter War takes all that has gone before and brings us to the end-game of the Owner’s beginnings, taking all aspects laid down in the previous volumes to deliver a satisfying and entertaining conclusion.

As with Zero Point, Asher doesn’t hang around in getting us into the action, with Jupiter War jumping straight into the meat of the story. Alan Saul, the Owner, is on Mars to rescue his sister, Var Delex, and while there he plans on utilising the Antares base to his own ends: turning Argus from asteroid station to interstellar spaceship. On Earth Serene Gallahad is dictator, implementing her justice as and when she sees fit, taking no prisoners in the process. But she still doesn’t possess the gene bank needed to kick start the biosphere into life again, with her dream of rebuilding the planet reliant on getting her hands on it. With events unfolding on Argus and Earth, and both parties focused on what they must do to meet their goals, it is only a matter of time before the final deciding battle takes place.

What works in Jupiter War is the way Asher has pulled together all elements from the previous novels into a coherent whole, answering questions that are raised and continuing the character development nicely and without any unwarranted changes. Saul continues on the path to godhood, combining ever more with technology and moving away from his human side. This is particularly evident in his dealings with those on board Argus, even with his sister, Var.

This review is for all THREE books in the series which I read all in the same week.

The trilogy is an excellent read. I found the beginning slow while Neil laid out the essentials of the story, but once I got past that the books raced along. Neil's understanding of transhumanism, politics, social engineering and all of the science involved puts the reader squarely in the centre of the story. His brilliant writing makes this a fun read and you really get involved with the characters.

I will need to read these again soon. I'm off to get some more of Neil Asher's books.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 24 Dec. 2013
Format: Hardcover
Jupiter War, Neal Asher, Tor, 2013, 471pp.

This is an excellent finale to the `Owner' series by this author, and continues directly on from the end of the previous novel, Zero Point (Owner Trilogy 2). It is an excellently constructed novel, as Argus Station moves from Mars, to the far side of the Sun (from Earth), to the Asteroid Belt, and to the moons of Jupiter; while the Scourge returns to Earth, and Earth builds up its defences and a squadron of attack ships, and mutinies are plotted on Argus and aboard Earth's space dock, culminating with the twin climaxes of a space battle in Jupiter orbit and the mutiny on, and attack of the Scourge against, the space dock - which has Selene Galahad aboard. The story moves with clockwork precision, as vast distances and long periods of time have to be carefully choreographed to ensure that everyone is where they need to be at the appropriate time, while also maintaining the interpersonal relationships and character development of the large cast. Everyone and everything fits together like clockwork, as you would expect from the master-craftsman that is Neal Asher. Oh, and there is plenty of death and destruction on an epic scale, also as you would expect from Mr Asher.
