Publisher's Summary

In Neal Asher's The Technician, the Theocracy has been dead for 20 years, and the Polity rules on Masada - but it is an order that the rebels of the Tidy Squad cannot accept, and the iconic Jeremiah Tombs is top of their hit list.

Tombs, meanwhile, has escaped his sanatorium. His insanity must be cured, because the near-mythical hooder, called 'the Technician', that attacked him all those years ago did something to his mind even the AIs fail to understand. Tombs might possess information about the suicide of an entire alien race. It's up to the war drone Amistad to discover this information, with the help of an ex-rebel Commander, the black AI Penny Royal and the amphidapt Chanter.

Meanwhile, in deep space, the mechanism the Atheter used to reduce themselves to animals stirs from slumber and begins to power up its weapons....

Engaging from start to finish

I am played by catch up with Neal Ashers books and an probably reading them out of order but I am enjoying each and every one. This book expands the story and fills in the gaps in my Polity knowledge and lore, great listen and Peter Nobles narration as always is outstanding

Interesting

This story is an interesting one. I did get a little annoyed with the religious babble as I’m not really religious myself and did want to just give up on this book but decided not too.

It certainly expands the world a bit more though mostly what the Athiter is and what they were and why they did what they did. Its a good story though personally I likely not read...er listen to it again.

I’d much perfer to re-listen to the Brass Man or one of the Spatterjay novels though I have get to read the Dark Intelligence books
