Overview


Earth’s Zero Asset citizens no longer face extermination from orbit. Thanks to Alan Saul, the Committee’s network of control is a smoking ruin and its robotic enforcers lie dormant. But power abhors a vacuum and, scrambling from the wreckage, comes the ruthless Serene Galahad. She must act while the last vestiges of Committee infrastructure remain intact – and she has the means to ensure command is hers. On Mars, Var Delex fights for the survival of Antares Base, while the Argus Space Station hurls towards the red planet. And she knows whomever, or whatever, trashed Earth is still aboard. Var must save the base, while also dealing with the first signs of rebellion. And aboard Argus Station, Alan Saul’s mind has expanded into the local computer network. In the process, he uncovers the ghastly experiments of the Humanoid Unit Development, the possibility of eternal life, and a madman who may hold the keys to interstellar flight. But Earth’s agents are closer than Saul thinks, and the killing will soon begin.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although neurologically enhanced Alan Saul has destroyed the despotic Committee and launched the Argus Space Station to the Mars colony, Earth has fallen prey to the egomaniacal Serene Galahad, the lone Committee survivor who's seized the chance to exert total control. When an attempted assassination plunges Saul into a coma, his second-in-command, Hannah Neumann, tries to keep his condition a secret while assuming the burden of shaping Argus's destiny by herself. Meanwhile, Var Delex, whose actions freed the Moon from rule by a madman, now faces a potential rebellion among the ranks. VERDICT Continuing Asher's hard-sf saga of humanity's attempt to come back from the brink of disaster, this sequel to The Departure is a compelling blend of action/adventure, personal drama, and a thoughtful exploration of the complications of advanced technology.

    High-tech Space Opera at its best

    Asher's style continues to evolve from the Grand Guignol visceral nature of his earlier Prador novels into more philosophical musings on what it means to be human in a post-Singularity future without losing the slam-bang action of the best Space Opera leavened with mordant humor.

    A bright light encases a tree as a dark grey femme pads out of it. She pads towards the two cats and tells them, "I'm sorry to say, but rough times are ahead. Things will become troubled, and too soon. I have a prophecy to take back to Dragonstar, Cloudbeauty, and Spiritfern. Talk it over."<br>"A storm of mud will rise<br>To defeat a shining sparkle<br>The kiss of shadows becomes a kiss of death<br>But the bark of a willow will stop the fight<br>with a threat of life or death<br>The shadow, kissed by the chance to live<br>grasps it in his claws.<br>While the dragon is cured,<br>the herbs will turn<br>And befuddle the minds of the young.<br>With the help of a spirit<br>and the shining sparkle<br>to teach the young the faults.<br>But lay the shadow to sleep<br>Guarded so he cannot turn back<br>The kiss will know hope isn't lost.<br>The forest of darkness<br>Will say they win<br>But they will be mistaken<br>for a willow at dusk<br>Will know to end it all<br>While the shining sparkle fights death's door"<br>"Good luck," Myntlight says softly, fading into the light. &starf &star Myntlight &star &starf
