Book Summary of Terminal World

Spearpoint, the last human city, is an atmosphere-piercing spire of vast size. Clinging to its skin are the zones, a series of semi-autonomous city-states, each of which enjoys a different - and rigidly enforced - level of technology. Horsetown is pre-industrial; in Neon Heights they have television and electric trains . . . Following an infiltration mission that went tragically wrong, Quillon has been living incognito, working as a pathologist in the district morgue. But when a near-dead angel drops onto his dissecting table, Quillon's world is wrenched apart one more time, for the angel is a winged posthuman from Spearpoint's Celestial Levels - and with the dying body comes bad news. If Quillon is to save his life, he must leave his home and journey into the cold and hostile lands beyond Spearpoint's base, starting an exile that will take him further than he could ever imagine. But there is far more at stake than just Quillon's own survival, for the limiting technologies of the zones are determined not by governments or police, but by the very nature of reality - and reality itself is showing worrying signs of instability . . .

Liviu March 23, 2010 review from Goodreads

Terminal World was one of my top 5 expected novels of 2010 and it was good but not awesome and the weakest novel I read from Mr. Reynolds as execution goes - I did not like The Prefect and Century Rain as much as the others mainly because I thought the mystery/thriller part in each was too detrim...

Robert August 09, 2012 review from Goodreads

I broadly enjoyed reading this book, but my big gripe is that the story just stops, in the middle of dramatic events, without explaining what happens to the characters, without explaining the real nature of the world - in particular the "zones" which limit technology and make up the entire premis...

Rich December 01, 2011 review from Goodreads

Alastair's first novel to be described as "Steam-Punk Adventure."Imagine a world in which invisible, but palpable, divisions of technology exist not because differing enclaves of individuals lack the skill to use them, but because the very fabric of the universe only permits a certain level of te...

Mattias November 15, 2011 review from Goodreads

"Terminal World is a snarling, drooling, crazy-eyed mongrel of a book, equal parts steampunk, western, planetary romance and far-future SF". Den här boken kan inte jämföras med mycket annat, men leder närmast tankarna till Mievilles The Scar, med klassiska inslag av Mad Max. Berättelsen utspelar...

Michael September 20, 2011 review from Goodreads

The story was excellent and moved along at a good pace with some surprises and lots of action. There was always something worth happening and no lagging places. The characters were well done and they developed nicely in ways that felt real and because of things that happened or people they met. N...
