With his infectious love of storytelling in all its forms, his rich characterization, and his unrivalled grasp of cutting-edge science, Hannu Rajaniemi has swiftly set a new benchmark for SF in the twenty-first century. Rajaniemi's future is one in which quantum effects can be manipulated by the powerful to unknowable ends; an era in which some are gods and billions of others are enslaved for the processing power of their brains; where in the inner Solar System, the once-human Sobornost endlessly iterate themselves in vast, planet-sized guberniyas, while casually running experiments on the photosphere of the sun. In this world, Jean le Flambeur has broken out of a virtual prison and, later, into the mind of a living god. Now his one-time rescuer, the warrior Mieli, is a prisoner herself. To get her back, Jean will need tools: A quantum pyramid scheme, a pair of physical bodies, a nugget of computronium, a bunch of entangled EPR pairs, and a few very special hydrogen bombs. Jean le Flambeur, gentleman adventurer, is back. The solar system will tremble from one end to the other before he's done.

Professional reviews

"The final book in Finnish author Rajaniemi's trilogy begins as the universe's final battle looms. Narrator Roger Wayne's well-paced reading suits the introspective journeys of the storyÕs introspective protagonists. Having failed in his latest scheme, master thief Jean le Flambeur seeks not only to be redeemed but also to rescue his partner, Mieli, who makes an attractive target for almost every group involved in the war. Listeners unused to conceptual science fiction may find themselves struggling to grasp parts of the plot as the story moves around in time and portrays various warring groups. Starting with the first book in the trilogy, THE QUANTAM THIEF, is strongly recommended. J.M. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
