Way better than The Voyage of the Sable Keech, but not up to the level of The Skinner. Really this book is all about following some already established characters, but to say this book is a continuation of the first two books would be misleading. Instead of the wildly exotic Spatterjay environment, we follow an old ship captain, a mutated prador, and a war drone through their struggles in and around various space ships. Really this book is way more about the characters than the environment, where as The Voyage of the SK is a lot about the events on a single large boat on Spatterjay, and The Skinner is all about the various dangers of the planet itself. There actually is a trend to how the series of books has been conceived. I enjoyed following the three main characters, and even the 5 or so important characters around themaction, bloodshed and transformations. Fun to see bitter enemies become unwilling allies, working together out of need. While entertaining, and worth readingI really pine for content from The Skinner. The brutality and mystery of that environment is really only captured in that book and a short story or two. Part of the mystery of Spatterjay becomes a crucial story element in Orbus, and I didn't like the clear explanation of what the Spatterjay virus is, and why it existsit's that clear explanation of how it all fits together that I don't like. If there is ancient genetic code with deep secrets from super intelligences... perhaps the pandora's box effect doesn't need to have such a clear explanationI'd rather the Spatterjay virus had yet unexplained depth, but I don't see how that is possible with how this book explores that content. Just my opinionand not really a huge hit to this book, but Neal seems to understand the importance of maintaining mystery, so I was surprised how this was handled. 3 Stars

Orbus, book three in the Spatterjay trilogy is a far fall from the wonders and sheer awesomeness of the first book. I confess that due to my love of the genre that this was more like a 4 star read to me that I get had to take away from my score because it does not compare to the start of the series. I absolutely loved books one and two with the first one being a knock out. The world of Spatterjay is a science fiction and technological dream. The Hoopers are one of the greatest fictional characters ever created...

Orbus is a very narrowly scoped book that really can summed up in just a few sentences. A very large and unkillable man, a sentinent war drone, and a sidekick come to head against two extremely genetically mutated bugs/squids/men/machines in a bad place called the Graveyards. They all find out that their is a really, really,really big bad out there that appears to be coming back. Gun fights ensue. Killings, maiming, and mutilating also occur.

Orbus is an amazing larger than life Hooper that is a great addition to the series. The Old Captains should have many more novels written about them as they are sheer awesomeness. Sniper is back and is just as bad ass and wise cracking as before. The Prador are scary, gross, and really freaking cool.

I love Neal Asher and cannot wait to read more of his books as there are many. The world of Spatterjay is a must read for ALL science fiction lovers. Unfortunately, this one is not necessary to read to appreciate the world that Asher has built. @Read õ Orbus (Spatterjay, #3) ⚣ Orbus Spatterjay BookEnglish Edition EBook AsherAchetez Et Tlchargez Ebook Orbus Spatterjay BookEnglish Edition Boutique Kindle AdventureOrbus The Spatterjay Series BookNeal Asher, WilliamOrbus The Spatterjay Series BookNeal Asher, William Gaminara, Macmillan Digital AudioLivres Orbus Spatterjay,by Neal Asher Orbus, An Old Captain From Spatterjay, Has Left His Sadistic Ways After The Near Death Experience And Decided To Change The Climate As A Captain Of The Trade Space Ship He Goes Go Graveyard Carrying With Him The Two Drone Stowaways Spatterjay La Srie En Livres Audio Tlcharger Audible Tlchargez Spatterjay Et Coutez Les Livres Audio Sur Votre Mobile Ou Lecteur Mp Procurez Vous Ds Maintenant Les Livres Audio De La Srie Spatterjay Sur Audible Votre Premier Livre Audio Est GratuitOrbus The Third Spatterjay NovelOrbus The Third Spatterjay Novel Paperback November ,by Neal Asher Authorout Ofstarsratings Bookofin The Spatterjay Series See All Formats And Editions Hide Other Formats And Editions Price New From Used From Kindle Please RetryHardcover Please RetryPaperback Please RetryMass MarketOrbus SpatterjayAsher, NealThe Continuing Adventure Of Captain Orbus In Neal Asher S High Octane, Science Fiction Spatterjay Series Orbus The Third Spatterjay NovelIn 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 PradorOrbus SpatterjayPan Macmillan AU Old Captain Orbus Commandeered A Ship To Flee Spatterjay, Desperate To Escape The Violent Planet Orbus S Alien Enemy, The Prador Vrell, Is Also Moving On The Spatterjay Virus Mutated Him Into Something Evendangerous Spatterjay Series By Neal Asher Goodreads The Skinner Spatterjay,, The Voyage Of The Sable Keech Spatterjay,, And Orbus Spatterjay,Orbus Is The Trade S One Stop Shop For Event, Orbus Diverts % Of Its Total Waste From Landfills InWoodridge, IL March ,Orbus Exhibit Display Group, North America S Leading Wholesale Supplier And Manufacturer Of Display, Exhibit, Graphic And Event Solutions Is Proud To Share That It Diverted % Of Its Total Waste From Landfills By Recycling Aluminum, Plastic, Fabric And Cardboard, Cores And Paper In I loved this one, maybe my favorite Spatterjay novel. Orbus, an Old Captain from Spatterjay, has left his sadistic ways after the near death experience and decided to change the climate. As a captain of the trade space ship he goes go Graveyard carrying with him the two drone stowaways. Soon, it becomes clear that they we all manipulated by ruling AIs, because the Prador runaway Vrell, mutated by Spatterjay virus has gone in the same direction. Both Prador king and the Polity take the interest in the situation as well as their weapons. The Spatterjay virus has its own secrets and it will take the combine forces of former enemies to stop the danger to all civilized universe.

This was a wild ride through and through. Once the action starts, it continues to the very end. The last part of the book is explosive and had me at the edge of my seat. Did I mentioned before that I like Sniper? But, in this book some of the Prador gained much needed complexity as well and I was very satisfied with the outcome.

Orbus was not as awesome as the first book in trilogy, but it was much better than the second one. Great addition to the series. Perhaps the last truly excellent book by Neal Asher. I am a huge fan of Asher, and I had the opportunity to interview him for the Fantasy Book Club by the Square Groot. Lovely man, great laugh, check it out on squaregroot.com.

However, the big negative or criticism I have of his books after this one is that its very samey, in that the plot of his stories are the plan of one AI or entity (spoilers, kind of). This worked once for a series of books he did in the past, and even then everything you read that happened wasn't preordained or planned out by one thing. But since 2010 EVERYTHING is, and that for me spoils the books.

Orbus, however, isn't like that. There are characters that are powerful and intelligent, but they individually have parts of the puzzle, not all of it, so when pieces get put together there are surprises and tension and real stakes in that things could end up in destruction and death for all concerned. The characters are great, Orbus is the main character, and he has a real arc, he grows and changes, which is excellent. Sniper the war drone is back, as quippy and sarcastic as ever. Vrell has a massive part to play and has a great overall arc too. New characters such as the Golgolgoth, and the king of the prador are scary and menacing and though alien there goals and objectives are clear.

The one thing that makes this book for me is the battle, or all out war, that occurs at the end. It is by and far the best space battle I have ever read. It is superbly written and described, Asher doesn't waste page space with boring details, it is visceral, hard hitting, tense. It is that good.

This battle alone tips the book into five star territory. There are one or two lulls in the story before this point, Asher had a habit of going into intricate details about how to solve a problem, or how this character MacGyver's a situation, which is tedious. A couple of characters are just there with no real personality. However, this all leads to this epic battle, which is definitely worth the wait.

A brilliant book. Of all the Neal Asher books I've read so far, this is my favourite. The story is fastpaced and full of gloriously grim descriptions. The sardonic interplay between Old Captain Orbus and his disgustinglynamed crewmate Drooble are hilarious, as is the strange relationship between the drones Sniper and Thirteen. And over it all looms the mutating Prador Vrell, being hunted by the Prador King and a mythical monster of Prador nightmares, the Golgoloth. Gripping, chilling and entertaining. Not recommended to Asher newcomers but to the seasoned veterans! More a threeandahalfstar book. Asher shading into space opera, and doing so in somewhat undistinguished fashion. Lots of Prador history exposition, but with confused results, making them a little more human but inconsistently so. Similarly indeterminate humanization of Orbus himself, with a scattering of psychological vignettes but no real depth. Maybe not threeandahalf after all. I have to say that I am done with Spatterjay. This one tipped the balance where I no longer care about what happens in this story. It was all a bit too much. I feel like I read a story about one continuous long battle with high tech weaponry. It just didn't take a break and try to develop a story. It felt like it was a battle wrapped around some characters that were exactly the same as the previous books.
So that's me done with Spatterjay. Well at least it was not pirate ship stories like the other spatterjay novels. This one is back to space where it belongs. I was jolted out by multiple pop culture references that make no sense in context. Otherwise it was a decent read but I’m glad to move on from Spatterjay.
