If you want se, violence, and excellent alients., this is your book.—SFX

Under attack from every direction, the Polity teeters on the brink of annihilation . . . and only Agent Cormac can save it.

When one of Erebus’s wormships kills millions on the world of Klurhammon for no tactical reason and the AI entity controlling the lethal Jain technology attacks the Polity, it falls to Agent Cormac to figure out why.

But, as further attacks ensue, it brings some of the most dangerous individuals in the Polity to the front lines of the war, including Mr. Crane, the indefatigable brass killing machine, and Orlandine, a vastly augmented haiman who herself controls Jain technology as she seeks both allies and a weapon of appalling power.

Meanwhile, with death and destruction on the horizon, scientist Mika is kidnapped and forced to wake the makers of the Jain technology from their five-million-year slumber.

But are Erebus’s attacks not erratic and instead completely planned out? And could that spell the end of the Polity?

Only Agent Cormac stands in the way . . .

Night Shade Books is proud to reissue Neal Asher’s Agent Cormac series, a fast-moving, edge-of-your-seat science fiction adventure from one of today’s most exciting SF talents.

I cant wait for the next one! The rich description and seemingly boundless store of amazingly round characters make this one to read again and again.

At the rate I am devouring this author's work I'm a bit nervous and should slow down and sample some other's... but I won't. Like an addict, I will pour through as many as I can find until they're gone. I like this author, and I love his universe. The conclusion of Ian Cormac's ark is a gritty and all too human look into a future laced with interesting and believable technology. Well done sir!

If you didn't start from the beginning and haven't gone back to the start; you, my friend, do not read science fiction. 'Nuff said.

Falconsoar trudged in, exsasted. He managed to climb a tree and find a hollow with room big enough for two large cats. He didn't care about bedding and just fell asleep in seconds within lying down. The sounds of the forest surounded the tree. Far off, a scent of another clan, specifiacaly HorseClan, drifted across the border nearby.
