Another great novel by Asher. A little less action than in his other novels and you don't really see how the multiple plotlines relate until the end of the novel, but one particular corner of Asher's universe is expanded as a result, which I'm sure will factor majorly in the Polity universe as a whole.
Make sure you've read the other novels in the Polity before you read this one, or you'll be lost as to the significance of what brief background information is present in this novel, and the full implication of the events in this book on future series. For my money, this entire universe is the closest to Iain Bank's Culture novels that I've come across, so if you're missing that universe you won't regret the time invested here.
A lot of the story is spent explaining events that have previously transpired. This became tedious quickly and I was eventually just getting through it. Not awful, which I know is hardly a recommendation but had the potential to be better.

The story over all was ok but jumped around a lot and felt fragmented as a result of this.
