Great dialogue, great characters, great settings - this takes post-apocalyptic worlds to a new height, with sensational results. Absolutely riveting! (BOOKS MONTHLY)
Filled to the brim with cybernetic enhancements to his body and sporting an artificial-intelligence companion who's with him wherever he goes, Petrovitch is as snarky, impulsive, and coarse as ever. He's also a genius who can manipulate computer systems without being anywhere near them and can access the most secret of top-secret files without moving a muscle.
But can he find his missing daughter before something horrible happens to her? Morden has built a fully realized, believable, postapocalyptic world and populated it with full-bodied characters. Sure, Petrovitch is a bit (well, a lot, actually) over-the-top, but so what? He's also completely engaging and so compelling you don't dare look away from him, for fear you might miss something.(BOOKLIST)
