The world building in this book is phenomenal. I really enjoyed reading about how this future came about, and all the intricacies in the paradigm shift in society. It was so well detailed and the author did an amazing job at keeping it from sounding bland. In fact, it was my favorite part. Even the descriptions of the tech and how they came to be or how they functioned had me enthralled and hanging on every word.
That being said, this book does need another work-through, and for some reason the interactions between characters didn’t stick with me too well. Besides that, the author is great with descriptions and pulling a believable narrative to connect us with the futuristic tale he’s spinning.
In an era where Earth has become a distant painful memory, the descendants of those fortunate to have fled had taken with them more than just their lives memories and pain, war followed them. For the tragedy of Earth was but the first chapter in an ongoing struggle for dominance over the minds of Humanity. Mining bases have gone dark, squadrons of warships carry out wargames while the droning masses are fed a copious diet of propaganda. Beings beyond imagining, some pawns in this great game, are waiting for the coming collapse. As pieces move into place, whisper turns to rumor as thoughts become reality, zero hour approaches. In the chaos and mass confusion the Jupiter Sector orders the thawing of a young woman from stasis. It is her first day awake since the war. It is the year 2412, and nothing will be the same, again.
