Publisher's Summary

Their nemesis lies in wait....

Orlandine has destroyed the alien Jain super-soldier by deploying an actual black hole. And now that same weapon hoovers up clouds of lethal Jain technology, swarming within the deadly accretion disc’s event horizon. All seems just as she planned. Yet behind her back, forces incite rebellion on her home world, planning her assassination. 

Earth Central, humanity’s ruling intelligence, knows Orlandine was tricked into releasing her weapon and fears the Jain are behind it. The prador king knows this too - and both foes gather fleets of warships to surround the disc. 

The alien Client is returning to the accretion disc to save the last of her kind, buried on a ship deep within it. She upgrades her vast weapons platform in preparation, and she’ll need it. Her nemesis also waits within the disc’s swirling dusts - and the Jain have committed genocide before. 

In this second volume of Rise of the Jain, Neal Asher takes us on a thrilling ride into interstellar politics and impending war. This is a novel set in Neal's popular Polity universe.

Merely a filling for a sequel

So very disappointed by the latest work of one of my favourite authors who has obviously fallen into the money trap and has produced a banal placeholder for the third book in the trilogy.
The whole work is lack luster filler, with no significant advancement of the story or character development.
It's just a sad and sorry cash grab!
