Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain (John Scalzi)

A richly imagined, exotic world, nonstop action, and unimaginable stakes - I couldn't put The Soldier down (Yoon Ha Lee on The Soldier)
Neal Asher's coruscating mix of epic space opera, weaponised Darwinism and high-stakes intrigue channels the primal flame of deep-core science fiction (Paul McAuley on The Soldier)
With mind-blowing complexity, characters, and combat, Asher’s work continues to combine the best of advanced cybertech and military SF (Publishers Weekly on The Soldier)
Space operatics and Jacobean revenge-melodramatics (Locus Magazine on The Soldier)

This book marks a return to form not entirely absent in the previous six books (the Owner series and the Penny Royal series which I read and enjoyed) but, in my humble opinion (and I know why) there was a period when writing seemed, not really a joy but a task like a cavitating round trying to push its way through a mountain because it `F?@#ing well must'. But this one even in comparison to the Soldier is better, the gallows humour, Gordon, Heinlein, it flows, it references the history and invites new readers to find out the why and the where from? And because Neal spends time rooting through Physorg.com the science as crazy as it sounds is based in our real and emerging future.
It makes me happy on a number of levels, but especially because I feel like I did when I fell into the Polity via Brass Man 14 years ago.
Massive space battles.
Machiavellian AI plots within plots within feints within feints.
