Prador Moon

by Spoon on 10/30/2006

"Prador Moon" takes place in Asher's "Polity" universe and chronologically before the events in "The Skinner", one of Asher's previous books. In this novel, we meet the Prador for the the first time, and it's not pretty. The Prador have no desire for diplomacy or peaceful co-existence: they see only conquest, slaves, and a new and tasty food supply. While a somewhat non-prepared Polity tries to get on a war-footing, two characters, a civilian and a soldier, become the focus in keeping the Prador at bay. The ending is somewhat foretold in "The Skinner" but is extremely satisfying nontheless. With his British background, Asher's writing is stilted at times for us colonists, but easy to follow. As Asher has noted, his "overnight success" took 20 years, but it was well worth the wait; I read this over the weekend, deeply hooked from the first few pages. Read More
