Alvar Kresh and his Robot partner, Donald-111 are once again thrust into the heart of the political struggle on the Spacer colony of Inferno. When the planetary Governor, Chanto Grieg is murdered, Settler, Spacer and other political factions all have the motive to be guilty of the crime. With the threat of Inferno's collapsing environment hanging in the balance, Kresh will have to navigate a sea of political intrigue to find the guilty party without throwing the planet into even greater turmoil.

Inferno was a novel I could have given anywhere between two and four stars, and I ended up settling on four because the fact is I found the novel entertaining despite a few things. First, clocking in at 225 pages in hardback, one of the first thoughts I had was that the plot of this novel could have been rolled into either the first or third novel (or both). Basically, like many trilogies, the middle novel suffers as either a unnecessary epilogue to the first novel or an really long introduction to the third. In the case of Inferno, it could be either and had that "only written because the publisher wanted a trilogy" smell about it. Additionally, the overarching plot of the trilogy seems to be the introduction of the New Laws robots and Caliban, a No Laws Robot. While both Caliban (focus of the first novel) and the leader of the New Laws robots, Prospero, appear in Inferno, they're mostly tertiary characters, which contributes to the side-story feel of Inferno. The Scooby-Doo gather-all-suspects in a room ending also felt a little contrived.

Negatives aside though, I found Inferno to be an entertaining, if unneeded, story. The relationship between Kresh and his Robot partner Donald was well done and obviously meant to take Asimov fans back to the days of Elijah Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw. Roger Allen does a good job of re-creating that human-robot partnership first seen in The Caves of Steel and The Naked Sun. Fans of Asimov will also see some of his style captured in the relatively spartan detail of Inferno - Allen concentrates on the murder mystery and leaves descriptive detail to the mind of the reader, creating a "simple" mystery that's still hip-deep in intrigue.

Great continuation of Asimov's universe.

the entire trio of spin-offs are garbage. Zero justice to Azimov's genius.

2nd is a trilogy set in the asimov universe between the robot novel series and the foundation series. If you are an Asimov fan you will enjoy this series.

This book reads like a middle ground book, which it is. It is the connector between Cailban and Utopia. It's a good book and expands a little more on the Spacer/Settler interaction on the planet Inferno through the vehicle of Chanto Grieg's murder. Lot's of interesting touches like the forced conscription of robotic labor that help define the society and dress the stage for Utopia. A very good book if not as good as the first.

If he were alive to see what Allen did to his Robot Universe, he would strangle the guy. This is a perfect example of why Allen should've stuck to those Little House On The Prairie sequels. The basic idea of Inferno (Just like it's predecessor, Caliban) is the creation of two new kinds of robots: The New Law robots and the No Law robot, and their effect on the society of the planet Inferno. The New Law Robots are freer than the original Three Law robots in Asimov's books, but have their own share of problems; Caliban, the only robot created with no laws, is of course the most free, but is far from human. This is all well and good, and in a more capable writer's hands would have been interesting, but Allen takes his one or two good ideas and throws them in a turbine. I'm sorry, Mr. Allen, but I don't really care about the intimate details of Tierlaw Verick's body, or anyone else's, for that matter. Whatever happened to "don't tell, show"?
While the murder mystery was well set up, the ending was more of Agatha Christie ending, with a parlor room scene and a head shaker of a perpetrator. The political intrigue which should have been the height of this story was not focused on well enough. This is a society in the grips of an awful set of diriving forces that should have rocked the foundations of the planet. But you didn't feel that pain from the governor. The 4 law Robot introduced isn't given the same exploration that Caliban was in the first book. You do not get behind his head. The pain of transition should have been brought to bear hear as their are real world examples all around us. This missed the boat.
