He's the nightmare you never imagined

In the far-future, the Heliothane Dominion triumphed after a bitter war. But some enemies escaped into the past, to wreak havoc across time. The worst is Cowl - originally human, until artificially-forced evolution made him something else entirely.

Polly is unprepared for her involvement with Nandru Jurgens. He's a Taskforce soldier, now hunted by killers. Nor can Polly resist the alien 'tor' she's compelled to attach to her arm. But when she's dragged through time, she learns fast. Tack has a tor fragment embedded in his wrist - a bloody reminder of Heliothane's government. As their vat-grown assassin, he's no stranger to violence. But the extent of this mission is different.

Meanwhile, a beast hunts its targets through time's alternate dimensions. This is Cowl's pet tor - and it's eager to feed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In Cowl Neal Asher seems to be doing to the time-travel adventure what he has been doing to space opera and planetary romance: to pump it full of performance-enhancing substances and send it crashing through a gigantically expanded version of its traditional milieu, exploding the big sets and sending body parts flying in all directions. * Locus *
Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain -- John Scalzi on The Soldier
The Soldier provides everything we demand from Asher: a beautifully complex universe where AIs, aliens and post-humans scheme and struggle - magnificently awesome. Then Asher turns it up to eleven -- Peter F. Hamilton on The Soldier
The whole impressive, ingenious enterprise hurtles along at a high-octane clip while swinging with nonchalant abandon between horror and comedy: call it black slapstick. In sum: a blast * Kirkus on The Skinner *
His easy style and intriguing plot make for a great story that treats the reader as an adult rather than an educationally subnormal adolescent * The Times on The Skinner *
