Reviews

Praise for Terminal World

"Ingenuous and vivid settings...exotic scenery, special effects, set pieces--it's going to take some fancy dancing for the author to top this one!"--Locus

"It might be hard to understand how Alastair Reynolds, known for his imaginative galaxy-spanning space operas, would fare in other genres of science fiction like steampunk. Terminal World might be as close as you get to finding out."--SF Signal

"A wildly imaginative genre stretcher. [Reynolds] tells his tale with such verve that you just keep turning the pages."--Financial Times

"Hairsbreadth escapes, gutsy fight scenes, unfeasible coincidences throughout the rest of the novel and one or two moments where Reynolds does achieve an authentic sense of wonder."--SF Site

"A rousing adventure in a wildly original setting."--The Guardian (UK)

"The pages are filled with alarums and adventures, reversals, betrayal and frightening experiences--as many as one would hope for from a planetary romance. Quillon builds genuine relationships after leaving Spearpoint [and] as he is able to acknowledge his own nature, overcomes default hatred of his type and becomes a valued member of his society."--Strange Horizons

"An intellectual balancing act...airborne battles...plenty of action, too. It's almost the most convincing steampunk novel you'll ever read."--SFX
