Asher delivers a satisfying space opera full of adrenaline highs .
. . Fast-paced fun -- SFX
Rail-guns rattle off, pulse rifles fire out shots and explosions ring out. This is what Asher does best -- SciFiNow
It is, like all of Asher's work, brilliant fun -- Deathray
Orbus hits every nail on the head, every time. Neal has not only delivered an excellent, enthralling and action-packed story, but probably his most accomplished and enjoyable novel to date. I honestly can't recommend this one highly enough -- Walker of Worlds
