Panoply is a small, efficient police force, dedicated to maintaining the rule of democracy among the ten thousand disparate city states orbiting the planet Yellowstone.

Ingvar Tench was one of Panoply's most experienced operatives. So why did she walk alone and virtually unarmed into a habitat with a vicious grudge against her organisation?

As his colleagues pick up the pieces, Dreyfus must face his conscience. Four years ago, when an investigation linked to one of his most dangerous adversaries got a little too personal, Dreyfus arranged for Tench to continue the enquiry by proxy.

In using her - even though he had his reasons - did Dreyfus also put her in the line of fire?

And what does Tench's misadventure tell him about an enemy he had hoped was dormant?

MEDIA REVIEWS

a novel that works brilliantly as a space adventure and also reads, touchingly, almost as an atheist's reflection on why a kind of optimistic agnosticism may be a useful approach to finding contentment - SFX

A tremendously assured read, a fast-paced page-turner that delivers a well thought out story. - GUARDIAN

An utterly involving thriller, with a mystery that unfolds under steely control. - DAILY MAIL

It's grand, involving and full of light and wonder. Poseidon's Wake is one of the best sci-fi novels of the year - Sci-Fi Now

his finest moment yet and a glorious conclusion of the trilogy. A wonderful book and best that British SF has to offer at the moment - Upcoming 4 Me

Reynolds has not only rise to the challenge, but upped the ante. - SFX

Although a long book, with so much story to fit in there is a brevity to the text which makes it an easy read which can be enjoyed as a standalone even though it satisfactorily revisits and resolves the majority of the threads from the previous novels - Geek Chocolate

Intriguing speculation about human identity and potential. - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Possibly the best space opera I've read. - SF REVU

a well realised sci-fi universe, with plausible character - SF&F Reviews

Having completed the trilogy I now want to return to its beginning and re-read. Alastair Reynolds is one of my very favourite authors, every book is a much-anticipated event, and withPoseidon's Wake he shows yet again why that is. I loved every single page. - For Winter's Nights

Reynolds combines depth in characterization and dazzling hard-science applications to keep the reader turning pages. - BOOKLIST

Transhumans, talking elephants, inscrutable aliens and good old fashioned spaceship fights all contribute to a breathtaking adventure - THE SUN

A vivid universe with beautiful settings and engaging, dynamic characters ...Fans of sf will definitely want to pick up this title, especially if they also enjoy mysteries or police procedurals. - LIBRARY JOURNAL

A revelation that satisfies the demands of SF and mystery. - LOCUS

If you're looking for a cracking sci-fi mystery, pick this one up. - SF AND F REVIEWS

Incredible story telling and all plaudits are greatly deserved. - GEEK SYNDICATE

Cerebral but gripping, Elysium Fire is a must for Reynolds fans and a recommended read. - SCIFINOW

A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF - The Guardian
