“A blisteringly paced technothriller that dives deeper and even better into the chunky questions raised by Nexus. This is a fabulous book, and it ends in a way that promises at least one more. Count me in.”
- Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and Pirate Cinema
“Smart, thoughtful, and hard to drop, this richly nuanced sequel outshines its predecessor with a wide cast of characters and some complicated, uneasy questions about power, responsibility, and the future of humanity.”
- Publishers Weekly
“Crux does what sci-fi is supposed to do: Leave you staring into a future you never thought of. Make you wonder where you would fit. And challenge previous sci-fi scenarios.”
– Tom Shippey, The Wall Street Journal
“Potent like Naam’s vividly imagined nano-drug Nexus, Crux is a heady cocktail of ideas and page-turning prose. It left my brain buzzing for days afterwards.”
– Hannu Rajaniemi, author of The Quantum Thief and The Fractal Prince
“Nexus and Crux are a devastating probe into the political consequences of transhumanism; a sharp, chilling look at our likely future.”
– Charles Stross, author of the Halting State and Laundry Files series
“Highly recommended for preparation of the future revolution.”
– Harper Reed, former CTO of Obama for America
“A brilliant book, full of mind-blowing tech drawn in highly believable fashion. Naam’s action sequences carry a brutal intensity, and every time you think he’ll finally let you breathe the stakes rise even higher.”
– Jason M. Hough, New York Times best-selling author of The Darwin Elevator
“Crux is an outstanding speculative fiction adventure … in the same league as Michael Crichton and Daniel Suarez. Put it at the top of your summer reading list!”
– Scientific American
“Sublime. This book is speculative fiction at its finest. Mr Naam masterfully mobilizes the zeitgeist of contemporary political and tech culture … Tempts readers with equal parts dread and optimism. This is not a book to be missed.”
– Page of Reviews
“Readers of Ramez Naam’s techno-thriller Nexus will not want to miss the awesome sequel, Crux.”
– Kurzweil AI
“Crux does the work of great science fiction. It makes the reader look closely and critically at what kind of world we’re building here and now.”
– Kent Peterson
“Naam’s writing is always strong, fluid and sure. With gripping, heart-pounding action scenes and muscle-binding tension normally reserved for horror stories, Crux is a book you don’t want to miss.”
– Allways Unmended
“A worthy sequel that reads like a mash-up of Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy, Naam’s cyberpunk thriller is even better than the original.”
– SF Signal
“I found myself tearing through the pages as chapters flew by from different characters’ perspectives until the final pieces fall into place. If you enjoyed Nexus you will absolutely love Crux.”
– My Bookish Ways
“Crux would probably work fantastically as a movie and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a whole franchise spawning from Naam’s creations. […] Until then we should enjoy the thought provoking, but ultimately fun, workings of Nexus 5.”
“I have not seen an ending this well-executed since Steven Erikson. The staccato POV. That slow realization, where you “get it” just a few seconds before the characters do. The warring emotions. The dramatic irony. This is an author who is going straight to the top of my favourite new writers list”.
– Ristea’s Reads
“Crux is a model sequel, a novel that builds off of the success of the original rather than trying to imitate it. Naam is writing one of the most exciting thrillers I have ever encountered – crafting a near future that holds as much promise as it does menace. This could usher in a new wave of cyberpunk, a socially relevant shot to the frontal lobe. I hope the overlords of Angry Robot Books are smart enough to lock this series down for the long run, because I need more.”
– SF Signal
“Ramex Naam’s Crux, a follow up to his thriller Nexus, is just as exciting as the first book and will take the reader on a real thrill ride that is terrifying and gripping.”
– Looking for a Good Book
“The book quite liturgically got my pulse up and the first night I read it, I had to set an alarm or I would not have gotten any sleep. this is a very compelling near future science fiction thriller!”
– Brewing Tea & Books

I am hihghly impressed by both Nexus and Crux. Coming from a programming background (even though I gave up on it because I was not exactly great) I researched the author after being a few chapter into Nexus. The whole setting gave off the impression that the author had clearly done a lot of research or came from a programming or biology background himself. I thought that the procedures and problems described in both books are plausible and made sense. The conspiracy aspect is way too close to reality for my taste when I think of the latest scandals concerning many countrie's intelligence agencies...but it fit in nicely with the plot.
Apart from the plausible (to me) scenario the writing style is both gripping and fast paced. The characters are neither black and white nor do they stagnate in their development.
Last but not least I want to say that I loved how religion, specifically buddhism, was woven into the plot. I am not a buddist myself but in my opinion this was well done and added to the character development.
Kudos to you, Mr. Naam! I liked your ideas (and writing style) of this possible future so much I am considering buying your non-fictional books as well and/or book about the topics of nanotech and augmentation. The Nexus story gave me a lot to think and daydream about. Thank you.
Trotz allem hab ich das Buch verschlungen und werde auch mit Sicherheit den dritte Teil lesen.
Wem der erste Teil gefallen hat kann hier m.M.n. bedenkenlos zugreifen.
I don't know why, but the book just didn't make me addicted in the same way the first one did. Maybe the novelty of the whole transhuman idea was missing in comparison. Still a very good book, I recommend it!
