Reviews

A strong, exciting, and intellectually stimulating sequel.
--David Pitt, Booklist

Praise for the Nexus series: "Good. Scary good."
- Wired "Provocative... A double-edged vision of the post-human."
- The Wall Street Journal "A lightning bolt of a novel, with a sense of awe missing from a lot of current fiction."
- Ars Technica "Starred Review. Naam turns in a stellar performance in his debut SF novel... What matters here is the remarkable scope and narrative power of the story."
- Booklist "A superbly plotted high-tension technothriller ... full of delicious, thoughtful moral ambiguity ... a hell of a read."
- Cory Doctorow "A gripping piece of near future speculation... all the grit and pace of the Bourne films."
- Alastair Reynolds, author of Revelation Space "A sharp, chilling look at our likely future."
- Charles Stross, author of Singularity Sky and Halting State "The most brilliant hard SF thriller I've read in years. Reminds me of Michael Crichton at his best."
- Brenda Cooper, author of The Creative Fire "A rich cast of characters...the action scenes are crisp, the glimpses of future tech and culture are mesmerizing."
- Publishers Weekly
