THE SHADOW WARS
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
Picking up right where Winter left off, book two in Rees’ alternate history/steampunk/cyberpunk mashup series certainly delivers on all fronts, which may be more con and less pro, as this series potentially begins to overwhelm readers with a huge cast and countless story twists. There’s a fully realized world and the characters are vibrantly real, but Rees asks a lot of his reader in this weighty volume. While it’s unquestionably a good adventure, it edges toward overly long; you may want to pack snacks.
The virtual world of the Demi-Monde marches onward, toward the real world domination its villains envision. After her kidnapping, the president’s daughter, Norma, is asked to step up and re-enter the world she only just escaped. She struggles with the idea that friends may actually be enemies — and that she may have to work with them even so, in order to prevent an awful Final Solution. (MORROW, Feb., 560 pp., $14.99)
