Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Edelman presents a gritty, tech-heavy thriller that builds on cyberpunk tropes in interesting and detailed new ways. The world developed in 2008's MultiReal and 2009's Infoquake has become inflamed with civil war and rebellion as MultiReal, a technology that mathematically projects possible futures to aid in decision making, suddenly becomes inaccessible. Into this chaos, MultiReal-D makes its first tentative appearance, building on the earlier technology to allow the user to essentially exist in multiple time lines for 60 seconds. Numerous characters seek their own goals in a labyrinthine plot, but Edelman does manage to bring his disparate threads together to create a coherent and even cohesive conclusion that's most accessible and satisfying to those who have read the earlier books." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The Defense and Wellness Council is enmeshed in full-scale civil war. When the smoke clears, Natch must make the ultimate decision — whether to save a world that has scorned and discarded him, or to save the only person he has ever loved: himself.
