Age Of Scorpio announces loud and clear that in Gavin Smith an exceptional talent has arrived to uplift SF. The book is a master class of twisting plot lines that celebrate both the weird and astounding, amid a future that's deeply unnerving yet equally compelling.―Peter F Hamilton
Gavin Smith's writing is a brutal kaleidoscope of imagination, with the raw energy of a heavy metal album cover: equally dazzling with bloodthirsty ancient Picts and the fallen post-humans of tomorrow.―Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Causal Angel

If you're a fan of Neal Asher or Tim Lebbon you will find Gavin Smith to be the very essence of what you love about these two wordsmiths. Many reviewers use the old saw that the book they're discussing keeps them glued to every page, but I can say that this book keeps you glued to every paragraph. Few authors can weave a story transversing three time eras with both high fantasy and cutting age science fiction while constantly introducing the reader to mind bending concepts and fully developed characters that keep you totally invested for 500 pages!
