The world of Inferno will soon be uninhabitable unless a daring plan is enacted--drop a comet to create new rivers that would save the planet but could also destroy Inferno
Despite some minor victories, the climate on the planet of Inferno continues to deteriorate. Alvar Kresh - now Governor - and his wife, Fredda Leving, are approached by a young, arrogant scientist with a seemingly insane solution; shatter a comet and drop the fragments on Inferno to create a link between the southern ocean and polar sea. Kresh must determine if the plan can actually work while trying to stay one step ahead of the factions trying to push their way into political power, face off against a world-wide planetary AI (with normal Three Laws of Robotics) which has been tricked into believing that the environmental issue facing Inferno is a simulation, deal with a potential rebellion led by one of the New Laws robots.

The amount of material that Allen deals with in Utopia is pretty staggering in terms of plot. There's the environmental situation on planet Inferno - and it's effect on standard Three-Laws robots stuck in a first-law conflict (short-term danger to humans from comet impact vs long term danger to humans as the environment on Inferno deteriorates). There's Kresh dealing with the super-AI, "Dee," a three-laws robot who happens to be the only intelligence on the planet with the processing capacity to direct the planned comet strike and the fact that "Dee" has been tricked into believing Inferno is simply one big simulation. There's the New-Law Robots and the fact they their leader, Prospero, may be insane. There are the manoeuvrings of the major political factions (Ironheads, Spacers, Settlers and New Law robots) as they relate to the prospect of extreme measures to change Inferno's climate. There's the scientist who came up with the comet strike idea changing his mind and opposing his own plan. Finally, there is the kidnapping of a major player and it's effect on Three-Laws robots. Exhale. There's a lot going on here and Allen really does a good job of pulling it all together, although I couldn't help but feel the novel as a whole might have been more concise with one or two less "things" to deal with.

Allen does an excellent job of really forwarding Asimov's universe towards what it will become during the Empire and Foundation eras. The Spacers on Inferno, especially among the leadership, begin to see the ongoing detrimental impact that robots are having on their society. That, plus their mingling with Settlers brought to Inferno to work on the environment give us a picture of where human society is going in the future. The three books in this series - all good on their own merit - do an even better job as a whole. Throughout, Allen shows he can write a stripped down sci-fi thriller/mystery in the same vain as Asimov's The Naked Sun/Caves of Steel and continue to fill in and flesh out the transitory period between Asimov's Robots and Empire novels.

I'd recommend all three books in this series to any Sci-Fi or mystery/thriller fan. That said, these books should be read in order, and a moderate level of familiarity with Isaac Asimov's Robots/Empire/Foundation novels will add to the enjoyment.
Asimov's robots have delighted me since I was a boy, so it was a wonderful surprise to find new robot stories written by a capable author. The philosophy and plot lines of the new novels are true to the Good Doctor's vision and make a fine addition to the legacy left by Asimov. Caliban, Inferno and Utopia are all good, but Utopia is the best. Read them all, and enjoy once again being immersed in the wonderful world Isaac Asimov created for us!
This one continues the Asimov Robot tradition and raises even more thought provoking questions about the status and future of robot relations with humanity as well as the distinctions between settlers and spacers. The only downside was an extremely poor editing job, especially toward the end of the book.
the entire trio of spin-offs are garbage. Zero justice to Azimov's genius.
The book goes well until the ending. People will
be allowed to go on but it looks as though the
author plans to get rid of the robots. Robots are
the mainstay of a series like this. The author
needs to find a way to make both people and robots
live on together. Getting rid of the robots will
not improve the people. The robots did not make
them lazy. They did that to themselves and should
accept the blame and allow all the robots to go on
-- 3-law -- new-law and caliban. There are ways
that this can happen. If this is the last book in
this series -- it is a sad sad ending with humans
unable to own up to their own problems by blaming
them on robots.
The behind the eyes thinking was revealed better in Utopia than Inferno, but I would have liked to have seen more time spent behind Prospero's eyes. Prospero was the only New Law Robot you really get to meet, and for all his faults was complex and manipulative, but unlike Caliban, his thinking was rarely revealed except through overt actions. The governor, formerly police chief had serious planet wide dillemas and his tension was felt more. Since he married his one time adversary Fredda, I would have liked to have seen a more complete interaction than was done. The ending was a bit rushed, and I feel that some serious consequences were not dealt with.
I enjoyed this series for its imaginative premise and history of the spacer worlds that were not developed by Asimov--except for Robots Of Dawn. I was saddened by Asimov's death and the loss of his 20,000 year future history to humanity. However the additionof these stories from Asimov's estate and Roger MacBride Allen brought new excitement to the Asimov universe. I want more No Law/New Law Robot stories!
A very good book. Although I know it's the end of this story I hope it's not the end. The saga concludes with Inferno's enviromental problems being out of control. As a solution, the unthinkable idea of dropping a comet onto the planet is not only suggested but accepted. The idea of Settlers and Spacers working and living together is explored more in this book as it has been in the last two. It's a wonderful addition to the Robot novel's by Asimov. Although it hints at the idea of the two societies merging it does not resolve the issue of what becomes of the Spacer's and Settlers. This leaves room for future novels! I can only hope Allen or someone of his style is chosen to write them.
