This splendiferous write-up has just appeared in The Guardian, courtesy of the inestimable Mr Eric Brown. It’s all good but here’s the beefy part: “It’s a compulsive, breakneck read by a master of the craft, with stunning action sequences and acute character observations. This is the kind of complex, action-oriented SF Dan Brown would write if Dan Brown could write.”
N.B. Dan Brown is no relation to Eric Brown, in case you couldn’t guess.
