It's first contact... Polity style! The Polity Collective is the pinnacle of space-faring civilization. Academic and insightful, its dominion stretches from Earth Central into the unfathomable reaches of the galactic void. But when the Polity finally encounters alien life in the form of massive, hostile, crablike carnivores known as the Prador, there can be only one outcome... total warfare. Chaos reigns as the Polity, caught unawares, struggles to regain its foothold and transition itself into a military society. Starships clash, planets fall, and space stations are overrun, but for Jebel Krong and Moria Salem, two unlikely heroes trapped at the center of the action, this war is far more than a mere clash of cultures, far more than technology versus brute force... this war is personal. Epic in scope, unrelenting in action, Prador Moon delivers the blistering battles and astounding literary pyrotechnics that fans of Neal Asher, author of Gridlinked, The Line of Polity, and The Skinner, have come to expect. Prador Moon is Asher's latest and most shocking excursion into the Polity's universe of over-the-top violence and explosive action. Asher delivers a vivid, visceral, brilliantly intense space opera that you won't soon forget.… (mere)

Brilliant introduction into the world of the Polity(even if the orders are skewed)! Going into this book blind to the Polity universe it served as a decent introduction even is some information was not given. And now for the rest of these books! ( )

This was a short and sweet one . Gave much more depth to the world . Now I know why the Ai drones from the cormac books had to be so vicious . ( )

The Prador are giant crab-like aliens that are, for all the information the author gives us, exactly giant land crabs, including breathing the same atmosphere humans do. How convenient and unlikely! The book opens with the first meeting with the Prador on a huge space-going space station filled with humans, an AI and the cyborg golems and AI sub-units. Within a page, a huge space battle ensues as does a battle inside the space station. Why are the Prador attacking the station? Who knows! Why are they attacking humans? Again, who knows, but apparently the humans are tasty, though later we find out that us humans are the Prador equivalent of fast food.

The rest of the book is spent on human vs. Prador battles, with some diversions for the Separatists (anti-AI) terrorists vs. the government. There are two main human characters, a government agent and a young lady who was a normal citizen until she got a supercomputer 'augmentation' unit and got pulling to the the conflict indirectly. Besides the Prador, there's a Separatist agent also. ( )

I decided to go back to the beginning to get more of a sense of how this universe works. I realize that you're supposed to be disgusted by the Prador, but their behavior is not that different from various animal species and humans for that matter. There still is a tendency towards unrealistic heroes, but the overall creativity and shifting points of view makes it an interesting book. ( )

Very readable and extremely quick-paced action adventure with buggy aliens vs AI-enhanced humanity in some distant future.

Sound familiar? Well, yeah, it is. But still! Lots of modern concepts thrown in, from virtual realities, fake-matter pocket universes, and bio-enhanced pheromone-enslaved monstrous race of aliens.

Add elements, mix well, and let the fur fly!

Seriously, I've read much worse and the quality *is* pretty top notch. There's even a few easter eggs for you peeps who want a little poetry or introversion with your pew pew action.

All in all, it's pure popcorn, from the peace delegation to the rending of limbs at same, to the dire fates of whole worlds and their humans and AIs.

Oh yeah, and humans never really get their shit together, do they? Sometimes, but it's sooooo easy to subvert them, isn't it? I wonder if those aliens are the same.... :)

Funnily enough, even with all these overt differences between the races, one thing is abundantly clear.... we're all damn weird aliens. :)
