I'm a little hard-pressed to decide what I can say about this novel, partly because I'm not sure what I can say about Asher's work that hasn't been said, partly because I'm not interested in giving away any spoilers. At the very baseline though, this is a view of life at the very bottom of the food chain in Asher's galactic civilization, as this time he's writing about the fate of human slaves in this reality, and it's just as nasty and gross as one can imagine; the existential opposite from "cozy." That's probably the point; that there are millions of people living shit existences in our own world, a number that is ever expanding, and rubbing that reality in, might be the thematic back story here. In the end, I liked this novel, but this is not the place to begin if you're coming fresh to Asher; the "Transformation" trilogy might be a good starting place for the total newbie.… (mer)

I am not (yet) well-versed in the Asher universe. I've only read one or two others and Locus reviews of a few more. The Technician makes constant reference to events in other books, especially the Prador War, but still works OK as a standalone. Space opera of the modern sort, which means big numbers tossed around freely -- intelligent (and hostile) entities that are millions of years old, space weapons capable of ripping planets and suns apart, population deaths in the thousands and millions -- and gory death and mutilation every few chapter, a penchant of Asher, Hamilton, and Barnes, and probably others. The story in this one revolves around a proctor of the Theocracy -- a willing if not particular major cog in a vicious religious government -- twenty years after the Polity and other forces toppled the govenment and a creature called the Technician chewed up most of him but didn't kill him, and left something behind. His story is interesting enough to carry the primary arc of the book, along with some revelations about where the Technician came from.

One annoying part is that scene shifts from one set of characters to another are completely unmarked by any whitespace. I don't know if this is an Asher gimmick to keep the reader off-guard or bad editing by the publisher (Night Shade Books), but I found no value in it.

Can't quite label this "recommended" -- it's just space opera with bits of horror -- but there's nothing wrong with it if that's your thing.

Crash, bang, wallop. In space. Big ships and narrow escapes. I need a gridlink to Neil Asher's mind to have any chance of remembering the details of who all the characters and motivations are. But the ride was fun, if confusing and inconclusive. Leading man, Agent Ian Cormac, needs a life. But maybe he's not human after all....

Interesting technologies and concepts, an interesting hero, and some great set-piece battles on both cosmic and human scales - but the complexity of the multiple plot lines and the large cast of minor characters work against Asher's otherwise impressive and entertaining imagination.
