Weaponized is a thrilling far-future adventure by acclaimed science fiction author Neal Asher.

A bright new future for humanity - or a dark and inescapable past.

Ursula has lived twice the normal human lifespan, courtesy of the latest technology. But now she's struggling to find excitement and purpose, so signs up to the Polity's military. She excels in weapons development, and progresses rapidly up the ranks. But after botching a powerful new ammunition test, she's dismissed from service.

Hunting for a simpler, more meaningful existence, the ex-soldier heads for the stars. And after founding a colony on the hostile planet of Threpsis, Ursula finally feels alive. Then deadly raptors attack and the colonists are forced to adapt in unprecedented ways. The raptors also raise a deeply troubling question: how could the Polity miss these apex predators? And alien ruins? Meanwhile, biophysicist Oren has formed his own survival plan - one he'll pursue at any cost.

As a desperate battle erupts to consume the planet, Ursula finds she must dig deep into her past to ensure humanity's future.

First is the Agent Cormac series: Gridlinked, The Line of Polity, Brass Man, Polity Agent and Line War. Next comes the Spatterjay series: The Skinner, The Voyage of the Sable Keech and Orbus. Also set in the same world of the Polity are these standalone novels: Hilldiggers, Prador Moon, Shadow of the Scorpion, The Technician and Jack Four. The Transformation trilogy is also based in the Polity: Dark Intelligence, War Factory and Infinity Engine. Set in a dystopian future are The Departure, Zero Point and Jupiter War, while Cowl takes us across time. The Rise of the Jain trilogy is comprised of The Soldier, The Warship and The Human, and is also set in the Polity universe.

Reviews for Weaponized (#4 Jack Four)

Gleeful but superbly controlled action-adventure -- <i>The Times</i> Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain -- John Scalzi Magnificently awesome. Then Asher turns it up to eleven -- Peter F. Hamilton on <i>The Soldier</i> A richly imagined, exotic world, non-stop action and unimaginable stakes -- Yoon Ha Lee on <i>The Soldier</i>
