A second novel following the previously reviewed 'Singularity Sky' with Rachel Mansour and her husband again featuring though not the central focus. Well thought out plotting with a young heroine for whom everything does not go according to
plan even with a 'deus ex machina' providing support. Very believable though the scientific elements have to be taken on trust (at least by those such as I with limited knowledge); these elements are consistently applied and do not have any of the
'with one leap he was free because the author forgot to mention something basic' spoiling episodes. An easy read and good
enough to encourage further reading by this author.
