Product description

Review

the fascinating inventiveness of the bio-engineered life-forms, the intricate detail of both the societies and habitats, the complex characters all amounted to a fabulous story. This is a book that has been carefully thought out and the author displays a wealth of knowledge on subjects such as bio-remediation and terraforming. It's a tale well worth taking the time to get into and enjoying McCauley's vision of the future. (SF CROWSNEST)

An impressively realised tale of competing ideologies that tackles pertinent questions. This is big, clever science fiction. (BBC FOCUS)

The author creates a magnificent sense of gravitas and wonder as he describes conflict. The ideas expounded are genuinely fascinating and well thought out. The stage is set for war and it is beautifully handled. (SCI FI NOW)

Few writers conjure futures as convincingly as McAuley: his latest novel deftly combines bold characterisation, a thorough understanding of political complexity, and excellent science. (Eric Brown THE GUARDIAN)

The Quiet War is a cleverly plotted book, laced with compelling science, and McAuley's scientific background shines through. (BOOKGEEK.CO.UK)

It's a complex, multilayered novel, almost an SF version of 'Bleak House' or 'Bonfire of the Vanities'. It's packed with great characters, breathtaking set pieces and intriguing SF ideas. (Dave Golder SFX)

Paul McAuley's new space epic finds him deep in Ken MacLeod territory. McAuley depicts his future plausibly. (PRESS ASSOCIATON)

"With restrained brilliance, McAuley takes that hardy SF perennial, the interplanetary war, and shows us how one might actually develop. This novel shows off many of McAuley's strengths - his solid plotting, his command of scientific theory, his sense of the complex moral and political implications of each advance." (Matt Bielby DEATHRAY)

Combines the damn-the-torpedoes, full speed ahead narrative impetus of a Peter F Hamilton, with the detailed, even meticulous attention to world-building and character development that distinguished Kim Stanley Robinson's classic Mars sequence. McAuley has always been a stylish writer, but he outdoes himself here. The Quiet War marks Paul McAuley's triumphant return to full-bore space opera. (Paul Witcover LOCUS)

Book Description

This exotic, fast-paced space opera turns on a single question: who decides what it means to be human?
