Nice. I've actually got a copy of Orbus, which I've had my eye on for a while since I quite enjoyed Asher's Shadow of the Scorpion. Not sure if I can read it on its own though, or whether I ought to check out the other Spatterjay novels first - I'm presuming the latter.
While we're on subject, here's the hardback cover. Prefer the paperback cover (above) myself.
Speculative Horizons is a UK-based blog dedicated to discovering the best in speculative fiction. Here you'll find book reviews, author interviews, artwork for upcoming releases, and commentary on all aspects of the genre.
A child of the eighties, I was raised on a steady diet of Ghostbusters, Thundercats and Transformers. I eventually discovered fantasy books via the awesome Fighting Fantasy series, and my love of fantasy led me to create Speculative Horizons, a popular book review blog I ran for three years. In 2010 I joined Orbit to work as an editorial assistant.
