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 *
'Some spellbinding shorter fiction'. * SFX *
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 *
Above all else, Beyond the Aquila Rift is full of wonders. You can find them in every story, reminding me why I love Alastair Reynolds' novels so much. * FOR WINTER NIGHTS *
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 *
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 *
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 *
Transhumans, talking elephants, inscrutable aliens and good old fashioned spaceship fights all contribute to a breathtaking adventure * THE SUN *
A well-paced, complex story replete with intrigue, invention and an optimism uncommon in contemporary SF * The Guardian *
