Publisher's Summary

The Line of Polity is the second audiobook in Neal Asher's popular Agent Cormac series.

Outlink station Miranda has been destroyed by a nanomycelium, and the very nature of this sabotage suggests that the alien bioconstruct Dragon - a creature as untrustworthy as it is gigantic - is somehow involved. Sent out on a titanic Polity dreadnought, the Occam Razor, agent Cormac must investigate the disaster.

Meanwhile, on the remote planet Masada, the long-term rebellion can never rise aboveground, as the slave population is subjugated by orbital laser arrays controlled by the Theocracy in their cylinder worlds, and by the fact that they cannot safely leave their labour compounds. For the wilderness of Masada lacks breathable air...and out there roam monstrous predators called hooders and siluroynes, not to mention the weird and terrible gabbleducks.

Loved it

Great book, read well with just a few inconsistencies. I'm not keen on the narrator's pronunciation of words like ceramel. I accept the stuff doesn't exist but considering its spelling it should be pronounced in the same way you say enamel. There are a couple of other words that grate but other than that, brilliant.

Great progression

Story almost picks up from first book, many of the characters are progressed.

Lots of grand space opera combined with personal stories of change and some of redemtion.

Once again editing not perfect but overall very good.

Not so easy going

This series is SiFi, but I found I struggled to stay interested, especially in this book. I found it very disjointed. And like other books in this series the only get going towards the end.

Good But Confusing

This book is very engaging even though its incredibly confusing without having the actual book in order to follow aling which I like to do. I find it more then a little disorienting to listen to a story as complex as this with the aid of the book to keep me focused.

Usually I’ll editmy own stories while listening to the audiobook. It keeps my fingers busy I’m able to multi-task rather easily thanks to an activity ai did in school.
