Description


A walking dead man, the only one ever to have been resurrected by nanochanger, goes by the name Sable Keech. The question remains: Was his success related to being infected by the Spatterjay virus, or due to his late arrival to resurrection in a tank of seawater? Taylor Bloc wants to know everything about Sable Keech’s journey—tracing and following his last steps. Moreover, Bloc is hungry for glory, power, and control. He’ll do anything just to get the answers he seeks.

A hive mind from the ancient days, almost unlike anything from the human race, has sent an agent to Spatterjay. If the mind has set its sights on the lethal poison—“sprine”—then Janer must find and stop it before it’s too late.

The strangest journey begins for the immortal Erlin when her solitude is rudely interrupted by an aggressive whelkus titanicus. Of course, anything is interesting if suffering the abysmal repercussions of immortality.

Deep below the sea, remnants of the Spatterjay virus undergo a terrible mutation that will affect everyone. After ten long years, something dormant deep within the ocean is breaking free. Once more, the aftershocks of an ancient war will hit this watery world.

For ten years, Sniper has been the Warden of Spatterjay. Now he finally takes delivery of his brand-new drone shell—a satisfactory version of the obsolete model. Powerful engines. Lethal weapons. Thicker armor. He’ll need them.

Praise For…


General Praise for Neal Asher:

Neal Asher’s books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain.” —New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

“With mind-blowing complexity, characters, and combat, Asher’s work continues to combine the best of advanced cybertech and military SF.” ?Publishers Weekly, starred review

Asher is a modern master of sci-fi.” —Starburst magazine

A wide-screen special-effects extravaganza, a space opera featuring gods and monsters . . . Doc Smith and Olaf Stapledon in a blender, turned up to eleven, with the contents splattering across the ceiling.” ?Russell Letson, Locus

“Asher has an amazing talent for world-building, for writing larger-than-life characters, for weaving gripping plots and for imagining exotic alien races and wonderful technologies. Huge ships! Big weapons! Space battles! Ground battles! Treason! Revenge! This is New Space Opera at its best.” —Sense of Wonder

Hardboiled, fast-paced space opera . . . Asher’s books are similar to the world of Iain M. Banks’ Culture universe, but the Polity is arguably a much darker and more vicious environment—and all the better for it.” —The Register
