The Soldier Neal Asher epub

In a far corner of space, on the very borders between humanity’s Polity worlds and the kingdom of the vicious crab-like prador, is an immediate threat to all sentient life: an accretion disc, a solar system designed by the long-dead Jain race and swarming with living technology powerful enough to destroy entire civilizations. 

Neither the Polity or the prador want the other in full control of the disc, so they’ve placed an impartial third party in charge of the weapons platform guarding the technology from escaping into the galaxy: Orlandine, a part-human, part-AI haiman. She’s assisted by Dragon, a mysterious, spaceship-sized alien entity who has long been suspicious of Jain technology and who suspects the disc is a trap lying-in-wait. 

Meanwhile, the android Angel is planning an attack on the Polity, and is searching for a terrible weapon to carry out his plans?a Jain super-soldier. But what exactly the super-soldier is, and what it could be used for if it fell into the wrong hands, will bring Angel and Orlandine’s missions to a head in a way that could forever change the balance of power in the Polity universe. 

In The Soldier, British science fiction writer Neal Asher kicks off another Polity-based trilogy in signature fashion, concocting a mind-melting plot filled with far-future technology, lethal weaponry, and bizarre alien creations.

    By TEMorris
    Another classic from Neal Asher. No one has a better cast of characters than Asher. There are so many and each one is so interesting and integral to his story. Just a great read.

    My completely subjective measure of a good science fiction writer is whether or not they can leave me with strong, lasting impressions; memories laden with powerful emotions & vivid imagery that persist throughout the years, even if I haven’t read the work in awhile. Mr. Asher does that wonderfully. He always leaves me with at least one such scene burned into my memory, even invading my dreams and nightmares. The Soldier has lived up to my expectations of him in that respect. I look forward to the next installment of this story!
