Much more SFnal than [b:Blue Remembered Earth|9424053|Blue Remembered Earth (Poseidon's Children, #1)|Alastair Reynolds|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1318599915s/9424053.jpg|14308470] & stands alone pretty well.

The triplication of Chiku meant that the jumps between subplot progressions were less annoying, because we essentially has the same viewpoint character in all three subplots. ( )

After decades of reading science fiction, I discovered Alastair Reynolds about three years ago and, given the scope of his work, am astonished that I had not previously encountered him. On the Steel Breeze is the second book of a trilogy set in the not distant future.

The action in this installment takes place a generation after the first book. An alien artifact has been discovered roughly 20 light years away, and generation starships have been dispatched to investigate and colonize the habitable planet, Crucible. Soon, however, it becomes apparent that a conflict is brewing between humans and “artilects”, artificial intelligence.

Alastair Reynolds is amazingly prolific, and his grasp of “hard” science fiction is as good as it gets. His imagination for advances in physics and cultural changes are amazing. However, I have come to the conclusion that his huge body of work is accomplished at the expense of polish. Reynolds’s activity consists of, write, write, write, PUBLISH. Write, write, write, PUBLISH. What is missing is polish and editing. This, along with many other of his works would be far better were it 100 pages shorter. It is simply bloated, turning a 4½ star effort into 3½ stars. ( )

The second novel from this series and it feels and reads much better than the first one. Still I can't give it five full stars as there are some parts that feel a it of a drag. But besides this minor complain I am really looking forward to read the third part. ( )

I love Alastair Reynolds.
I didn't know this was part of a series, so I'll just say that it's possible to read this one without reading the first in the series. It was lush and dark and lovely, as per usual with Reynolds. ( )

Typical Reynolds: untypical Reynolds.

This novel follows on from Blue Remembered Earth, telling the tale of human space exploration through the history of the Akinya family. It could be read independently but it'll work better if you've read it's predecessor - and why wouldn't you? That was a superior piece of SF. This is, too!

Three colour-coded members of the Akinya family split up and go very separate ways -light years apart - yet they all end up embroiled in history-making adventures and they all end up influencing each other.

There are lots of Reynolds themes here; no FTL, body modification, grand scale in space and time, mysteries upon mysteries. There's very little trade-mark gothic grotequery, though - even less than in Blue Remembered Earth - and heavily disguised insofar as it's present at all. There are still some brutal acts, though - horrendous if you can actually grasp the scale of them, which is difficult.

Reynolds is rarely just telling a tale for its own sake though, and here, among other things, he's looking at humanity and war: is war so ingrained in human nature that the only way to prevent it is alter human nature itself? Is surveillance and external control that almost entirely eliminates violence worth the price of almost total loss of privacy? Themes tackled by numerous SF writers, past and present, maybe but they keep coming up because they don't ever seem to get less relevant, important, urgent.

There's a lot of wildlife in this book, which I had fun noting. See how many different species you can spot.

Blue Remembered Earth left a lot unexplained; you get a few answers here but over all more questions and a bigger cliff-hanger - there's a lot of people in a lot of jeopardy and some big adventures to come in the third volume of this series. I'm looking forward to it! ( )
