    One thought on “Zero World”

    1. I don't think I've read a more exciting sci-fi novel since Neal Asher's "Owner" trilogy. This is sci-fi thriller writing at its best, I literally couldn't put the book down. How best to describe it? John Wick in space. Jason Bourne on an alt-Earth. Yeah, those work. All I could do while reading this was picture the John Woo version starring young Chow Yun Fat (Hard Boiled is my favorite action movie, soooo, yes I have good taste :D). If that could happen, please Hollywood, make it so!The book fo [...]

    2. Thought you might all enjoy reading Felicia Day's review! /review/showI'm leaving a no-rating review here as a convenient way to post news about this book. Please "like" or mark this helpful so it stays at the top. Cheers! I hope you all enjoy Zero World. I'm very proud of it!

    3. WHERE IS BOOK TWO. I don't understand why so few people I know have read this, because it's incredibly fun. If you liked Rachel Bach's Paradox scifi series or the Jason Bourne films (plus diverse MCs! Star Trek-y dilemmas! Spaaace.), this book is gonna rock your world. Also an easy transition for YA readers if you want to venture into adult SF.Review to come.

    4. Solid SF action/thriller with terrific world building. Way, way bigger and more ambitious than I was thinking based on the cover. The universe he's set up here needs more books, hopefully we'll get some.

    5. Wow! This ended up being fantastic! Note: The book actually only takes up about 77% of the Kindle version. There is a novella after that called The Dire Earth that ties into the The Darwin Elevator world.Meet Peter Caswell.He's a bad-ass secret agent/super soldier/assassin who works for an elite company called Archon. His handler, Monique, gives him his missions via mind-to-mind communication through a high-tech implant located on his neck. The implant also happens to wipe his memory after jobs, [...]

    6. 4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/08/11/bHow do I know when a book has got its hooks in me? I read the digital ARC of Zero World from NetGalley which actually ends at 78% with the rest of it being bonus material. Of course, I had no idea of this going in and didn’t find out until I hit the Acknowledgements page. Having expected this unbelievably gripping story to go on for about a hundred more pages – then having that expectation cruelly ripped away from me – my resoun [...]

    7. WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!! Oh what fun!!!!! This book is the reason I love Sci-Fi! I can't believe it is not more popular! It was AMAZEBALLS! I only found out about Zero World through GoodReads Sci-Fi recommendations, and I am so glad I bought it! I listened to the audio version on Audible and it was FABULOUS! - One of the best I have ever listened to!Peter Caswell is a secret agent. A super-spy! He is altered and advanced so that he can do a lot of cool stuff thanks to an implant in his brain. How [...]

    8. An amazingly fun book from a talented author. Once i started reading, I could not stop. The story had me riveted and kept me from stopping and going to sleep. Not many books can capture my attention so fully. Can't wait to see what happens next!

    9. A sci-fi spy thriller with the feel of an action movie.'Zero World' starts off strong, introducing us to Peter Caswell, a spy and assassin. To do his job, he relies on an implant which allows his handler to 'erase' all the memories of his missions, assuring that guilt and doubt never catch up with him. He approaches each assignment as a freshly trained, gung-ho agent, confident that he'll never have to ask questions or face the moral consequences of his actions. All he knows is that so far, he's [...]

    10. “This will be the most interesting mission you’ll ever forget.”Peter Caswell can’t remember where he’s been or what he’s been doing, but in his business, that’s par for the course. Caswell’s discretion isn’t just a professional promise; with the help of the implant at the back of his brainstem, it’s physically guaranteed. With his exploits wiped from his mind, Caswell is freed from the memory--and the responsibility--of every kill.But when his newest mission sends him off to [...]

    11. Let me get this right out of the way. Zero World is fantastic. I couldn't put it down. I was lucky enough to get an advance copy and holy crap does this book deliver the goods. The world building here is masterfully done and the characters are richly imagined. I don't want to really say anything else about this book because I don't want to spoil anything. That being said, Zero World is downright kick ass science fiction. It transcends the genre and if you're like me and you loved The Darwin Elev [...]

    12. I received a copy of this title via NetGalley in return for an honest review, and honestly?HOLY HELL.There are so many things right about Zero World, I don't really know where to begin.The genre mashup? Yeah, that's a good place. The cover suggests a James Bond / Jason Bourne protagonist, and the back cover blurb tells you it's science fiction. Both very representative of what you'll find in the pages. But I think this book would appeal to readers of steampunk, as well. So if I were assigned the [...]

    13. 4.5 Stars Zero World by Jason Hough is an action science fiction rocket blast of a thriller and adventure“This will be the most interesting mission you’ll ever forget.”Peter Caswell is a spy, a killer, and a professional assassin. He is also a man without a conscience. Caswell is able to be an incredibly ruthless and successful killer thanks to his special abilities which stem from a very ingenious futuristic implant. He is simply a man that is incapable of feeling guilty. Peter is a fanta [...]

    14. Well, color me disappointed. I was so psyched for this book. I'd heard it was John Wick in space - and I love me some John Wick ("I once saw him kill three men in a barwith a pencil") - so it was a given that I'd read this. Now I wish I'd looked for this in the library instead of spending money on buying it. It felt flat story-wise and the characters weren't very engaging at all. Peter Caswell, as the supposedly John Wick-ish assassin totally lacked any charisma and never really exuded any true [...]

    15. Let the countdown to action begin as Jason M. Hough firmly etches his name on the A list of science fiction writers as he leaves you caught in the magnetic gravity of every single page. Welcome to Zero World where someone is playing Russian Roulette with the planets.A tear in space, a spaceship long missing is found. The crew is dead, but one member is missing. On a mission to discover the fate of the missing crew member, superspy Peter Caswell is on the case, but what he discovers will shake th [...]

    16. I received a signed copy of an ARC directly from the author at the 2015 Phoenix ComiCon NOT in exchange for a review! It was a pleasure meeting and speaking with Mr. Hough and "gratitude" for the book.Sci-fi is one of my favorite genres and Zero World did not disapoint in that aspect. There were amazing twists that blew my mind and I loved the unique storyline!To be honest, there were times I struggled but all in all, I enjoyed the read. I think I would enjoy this even more as a movie since I gl [...]

    17. So, take a spy thriller with an assassin who can't remember his kills and throw him into an alternate universe but make sure he, at some point, forgets everything of import that's happened to him. Thus is the boiled down description to the best of my ability for Jason M. Hough's Zero World. It's a book with a lot of ideas, a lot of action, not a whole lot of character development, an alternate world build, and a somewhat interesting lack of clear focus at the times when it most needs it. Taken a [...]

    18. 6/10I enjoyed this but life got in the way meaning I was very slow to get through it which impacted my overall enjoyment. The story is clever and an interesting premise and written stylishly but when you can only read a couple of pages a night before falling asleep then things just feel stilted. In no way was this the books fault but my own. I wish I'd approached this at a different time as I think I could have really enjoyed this, instead I just thought it was ok and was looking to get into my [...]

    19. Zero World is a fast furious powder keg of a novel. An ingenious plot makes the story all the more exciting. Jason Hough's fourth novel, following the winning and immensely readable Dire Earth trilogy of last summer, is a great summer read. The story is fresh, fast, interesting and intense and has great science fiction antecedents. Mixing elements of science fiction, Jason Bourne, Total Recall, assassins and Star Trek's Prime Directive, the novel succeeds on most levels. The only reason it was n [...]

    20. I received this from Netgalley (a LONG time ago!) in exchange for an honest review.This one started out strong, but fell off after the halfway point for me, and I struggled to finish it.Peter Caswell is an assassin sent to a planet in an alternate dubbed "Duplo" because of its similarities to our Earth. Traveling in a spaceship with pre-programmed destination and return routes, Caswell is only told what his handler thinks he needs to know to carry out his mission: who the target is and a general [...]

    21. An exciting ride through a parallel Earth, with a (likeable) Jason Bourne-type in Peter Caswell and a kick-ass female lead in Melni. The alternate-Earth narrative is not something I'm usually into, but I liked this quite a bit. There are both similarities and startling differences between our world and the alternate Earth, and Hough does a commendable job keeping their two distinct speech patterns consistent, often on the same page. Action-packed and a surprising feat of world-building.

    22. Caution: this book will give you whiplash. Hough pulls you along so quickly, and then throws a plot twist at you so unexpectedly, that you might need to book a massage afterwards. Or maybe get some Advil.I admit that, going into this, I was chomping at the bit to be harsh. For this, I sincerely repent and grovel on my knees. As much as I try to be open-minded, I'm human. The premise of an alternate Earth reminded me a lot of Century Rain by Alastair Reynolds, who is one of my favorite authors, s [...]

    23. FULL REVIEW ON MY BLOG, TOTAL INABILITY TO CONNECTWhile the largest bulk of my reading is in the fantasy genre, sci-fi is certainly the second largest part of my list. When I read sci-fi, I generally feel that I am not quite smart/nerdy enough to really enjoy ‘hard’ content, with focus on spaceships and math and realism and such – I often say I err towards the people-centric, ‘soft’ stuff, ala Scalzi. Beginning with his Dire Earth series, I certainly found that Jason Hough’s works fi [...]

    24. I won an ARE copy of Zero World by Jason M. Hough through the First Reads Program.Peter Caswell, a technologically enhanced superspy who gets his memories deleted after completing a mission, has just been assigned to the most interesting mission he will ever forget. A spaceship that disappeared twelve years ago has been found with every crew member - except one - dead. It appears that the missing crew member escaped and fled through a wormhole that leads to an alien planet which appears to mirr [...]

    25. Stunning and Brilliant! Zero World is an a high velocity science fiction mystery that will take your breath away.Once again Jason M. Hough, the author of Dire Earth Cycle series, delivers with an amazing new adventure called Zero World. Captivated from the beginning, this is sure to become an all time favorite for me and any scifi fan. The story is presented in a graphically violent and highly descriptive manner so it may not be a tale for the young reader. For me, that was enhanced by the amazi [...]

    26. Zero World is a fast paced tension filled science fiction adventure. It starts out as one thing then changes direction again and again. Peter Carswell is not that nice a hero and at first I really disliked him. He never get less violet but he did grow on me as the book progressed. He and Melni Tavan make a good pair. There is very good world building - much of it full of surprises. The back story is interesting and critical to the story line. Peter and Melni have to carry the story and they do a [...]

    27. Peter caswell is an assassin that has his memory wiped after each "job."Monique, his handler, sends him on assignment to a space stationd his adventure beginsere is a nice mix of hard sci-fi, action and intrique in this novel. all in all a very intriguing read, yet I found it wasn't as fast paced as it could have been. the ending was open ended enough so Hough could, and hopefully would pen a sequel which I would definitely read.

    28. In the beginning it was so easy, so smooth to get into the story, he's one of those writers who's very accessible. But then even though the style was still just as smooth, it was jarring too when the point of view changed to Melni's on what Caswell's handlers called Duplica not because it was not familiar but because it was and the not familiar parts were then confusing when they couldn't be placed or slotted or paralleled or explained. But that was part of what made it work, (view spoiler)[it w [...]

    29. Peter Caswell is a programmable assassin, and a pretender of the highest rank. He can go anywhere, be anyone, and do or kill anything and be back in time to forget the whole thing. He lives in the moment and moments are his life. His current mission has him chasing the only surviving crew member of a missing spaceship, a women who has apparently murdered the rest of her crew and then fled through a wormhole to an alternate Earth, a world eerily similar and yet wholly more dangerous than the one [...]
