Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The year is AD 7000. The human species is extinct—for the fourth time—due to its fragile nature.

 

Krina Alizond-114 is metahuman, descended from the robots that once served humanity. Shes on a journey to the water-world of Shin-Tethys to find her sister Ana. But her trip is interrupted when pirates capture her ship. Their leader, the enigmatic Count Rudi, suspects that theres more to Krinas search than meets the eye.

 

Hes correct: Krina and Ana each possess half of the fabled Atlantis Carnet, a lost financial instrument of unbelievable value—capable of bringing down entire civilizations. Krina doesnt know that Count Rudi suspects her motives, so she accepts his offer to get her to Shin-Tethys in exchange for an introduction to Ana.

 

And what neither of them suspects is that a ruthless body-double assassin has stalked Krina across the galaxy, ready to take the Carnet once it is whole—and leave no witnesses alive to tell the tale…

Maybe its the fact that Mr. Stross is British, but the prose is exceptionally well written and not dumbed down/diluted to capture the Y.A. audience, though they might like it too. Conceptually, it seems quite plausible throughout. I especially liked that all aspects are explained in digestible morsels through the whole of the story and he maintains a witty edge in the narration.
