“Yet another storming performance from the prolific Asher of high-octane violence, exotic tech, and terrifying and truly alien aliens.” —Daily Mail

In the third installment of the Spatterjay series, the old Captain Orbus, now in charge of a cargo spaceship, flees from a violent and sadistic past. Little does he know, however, that Sniper, a lethal war drone, is a stowaway on his ship.

From the mind of author Neal Asher, Orbus continues the story of the mutated Spatterjay virus, which has turned Captain Orbus’s old enemy, the Prador Vrell, into something more powerful and dangerous than he could ever imagine. Vrell has seized control of a dreadnought, slaughtered its entire crew, and is now out to seek vengeance on those who tried to have him killed.

On the Graveyard, the border realm lying between the Polity and the Prador kingdom, Vrell and Orbus will soon cross paths. With a race of monsters from Golgoloth beginning a long cold war between his kind and the humans, the annihilation of civilizations is upon all, and no one knows what is truly to come.

Orbus is a nonstop ride between bloody battles and vengeance that only Neal Asher can cover, and like the earlier books in the series (The Skinner and The Voyage of the Sable Keech), Orbus is definitely a can’t-miss book.

“Rail guns rattle off, pulse rifles fire out shots and explosions right out. This is what Asher does best.”
