Reviews

Praise for War Factory
"Asher ventures into some terrifying minds and incredible space battles in this tangled but heart-pounding sequel, which achieves a rare success in depicting truly nonhuman forms of intelligence."
--
Publishers Weekly

"War Factory contains everything that is good about Asher's writing . . . Nobody does science fiction like Neal Asher, and War Factory is yet more proof of that."
--SFFWorld "War Factory is the best science fiction book I've read this year and the Transformation trilogy is already among my favourite Space Opera series ever. Do I need to say more? Just go and read it!"
--Sense of Wonder "War Factory is the ultimate space opera and military sci-fi thriller."
--Manhattan Book Review "War Factory is full of weird science and space, lots of complex characters, and healthy amounts of body horror. . . . an exercise in trusting the author, and I'm sufficiently impressed enough to continue to do so."
--Nerds of a Feather "Through all this violent action run questions of moral responsibility, justice and revenge, nature and nurture, redemption, restitution, collateral damage, and other matters that a mere carnival (or carnivore) ride would not bother to address. (I write this with some trepidation, having just viewed Captain America: Civil War. But, no, Asher does it better.)"
--Locus Magazine Praise for Dark Intelligence
"Beautifully paced ... does just as well as at slam-bang action scenes as at painting frightening pictures ... This is space opera at a high peak of craftsmanship."
--
Publishers Weekly, starred review "What Asher delivers here is state-of-the-art SF on so many levels ... a compelling, smart read."
--Paul Di Filippo, Locus "Blends large portions of horror and mystery into an SF tale of revenge and redemption ... a complex and satisfying work."
--Library Journal, starred review "An exciting, intricate, and unabashedly futuristic story rife with twists and turns ... Asher returns to his popular far-future series, Polity Universe, with another fast-paced space opera filled with his trademark technological marvels and elaborate world building."
--Booklist "Hardboiled, fast-paced space opera epic ... 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 "Perpetually on the knife's edge, and this constant tension works wonders for creating a page-turning atmosphere. It's a damningly gripping and infecting book."
--Upcoming4.me "A superb novel and 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 "One of his best works so far ... Asher is a modern master of sci-fi."
--Starburst magazine ""[The Polity books] are SF novels that mix early cyberpunk's insouciance with the widescreen baroque spectacle of space opera and the pacing of an airport action-thriller. But even by Neal Asher's standards, there's something particularly grisly about Dark Intelligence."
--SFX Praise for Neal Asher
"Asher rocks with XXX adrenaline while delivering a vivid future."
--David Brin, New York Times-bestselling author of Kiln People "What has six arms, a large beak, looks like a pyramid, has more eyes than you'd expect, and talks nonsense? If you don't know the answer to that, then 1) you should and 2) you haven't been reading Neal Asher (see point 1)."
--Jon Courtenay Grimwood "Projects the terror-haunted sensibility of our time into a future of limitless brutality . . . Asher displays great virtuosity."
--The New York Times "Asher has lit up the sky of science fiction like a new sun."
--Tanith Lee
