The Departure

The Departure - Neal Asher Another excellent sci-fi novel from Neal Asher, the skinner is one of my favourite novels and this is not far from that. From ashers novels you are always guaranteed interesting tech ideas and unashamed violence. The chief protagonist Saul develops extraordinary technological abilities coupled with thoroughly enjoyable action scenes. However the telling of his history could have been handled differently, it needed to be spread out through the book not concluded early on and it should have been alot more dramatic. In conclusion I found the characters to be mostly very believable and I found the story interesting and compelling, easy to read and I will definitely buy the remaining books of the series
