Review

Lamb shares Hamilton's ability to sustain a breakneck narrative where you always want to rush ahead and see what happens next. hugely promising (SFX)

Nemesis is a very entertaining action novel with some great science fiction. I loved the concept of the Roboteer in the previous novel and I still do here. There is some really intriguing science to go with the action, as well as some well-drawn characters, some great spaceships and some very memorable habitats and aliens. I want wonder from science fiction and this novel provides it, as well as a fair bit of horror, but most of all it is fun and put me on the edge of my seat. It is also a great size! I love a science fiction brickbook that I can lose myself in for a few days and when I finished Nemesis I was more than ready for part three. (For Winter's Nights)

Roboteer hits the ground running...Lamb handles the politics without resorting to info dumps and in Will has created a sympathetic and well-rounded hero (The Guardian)

Lamb's got so many ideas that they almost spill off the pages, and telling the story from both sides is a smart way of balancing the argument (Sci-Fi Now)

Alex Lamb has crafted a terrific debut novel. If the subsequent volumes are as good as this one then Lamb will surely be prominent in many an SF fan's bookcase (Starburst Magazine)

Format: Paperback
Nemesis is the sequel to last year’s superb debut novel by Alex Lamb, Roboteer. This depicted the conflict between the people of Earth and the genetically-modified settlers of its remote and often illegal colonies by focusing on one extraordinary and gifted individual, the Roboteer Will Kuno-Monet. Nemesis takes place thirty years or so after the conclusion of Roboteer and so you could start here – enough has changed or is explained to make it perfectly accessible. But I think that to pass over Roboteer would be a shame – it is a wonderful, fun and exciting piece of science fiction that provides so much food for thought, not to mention a great story and an intriguing, unusual bunch of characters. The first book also helps explain the nature of a Roboteer. These pilots or engineers have the technology inside their brains that enables them to move into a different, micro world, which can take any shape they wish, almost becoming the robot they control, seeing what it sees, escaping the limitations of human life. Will Kuno-Monet is the best of them all.

The review below assumes you’ve read Roboteer.

Much has changed over the last thirty years. The interstellar war between Earth and the colonies has come to an end, leaving many people dead, including a fair few people that we remember from The Roboteer. Will is now the most powerful human alive, if he can be called human. He has been utterly changed by his discoveries. He has faced the biggest threat facing humanity, he has looked it in the eye, and his one aim is to deter mankind from doing anything that might jolt that threat into action. He is a leading figure in IPSO, the peacekeeping force that keeps an eye on all the planets.

Interesting start the goes a bit slow but then the pace picks up dramatically. I really enjoyed the first book "Roboteer" (I nearly didn't buy the first book because of the corny title) and I enjoyed this one just as much. Left us on a bit of a cliffhanger and I can't wait for the next book.

Read te second half of this in just a few days. Like other reviewers I couldn't put it down but thrre was a level of predictability that I'd hoped Mr Lamb would circumvent as well as a few key points skipped over. Still a good read, hppefully the 3rd installment will make amends. Sorry Alex.

I'm very excited by Alex Lamb. Roboteer was wonderful and I was nervous about Nemesis with the bar being set so high, but I'm delighted to say that it exceeds expectations by far. A perfectly pitched continuation of the Roboteer saga which, like its predecessor, manages the paradoxical double of being both mind-blowing and accessible. I can't wait for the third.
