Just bough this second hand to complete my original series of 8 - have bought the new 2 prequel books for Kindle, but not sure if I will buy the full new series (of 20!) as I like the original and do not need more. Wingrove is an undiscovered British treasure!
Having got dissapointed with Book 4, I was worried about this next book in the fabulous series by David Wingrove. The way he manages to show the goodies and baddies without making them look goodies or baddies is totally original. DeVore, as cold as ever has fled to mars and is hellbent on making the Solar System his! Meanwhile the once pompous Hans Ebert is beginning to find his true calling by leading a tribe of outcasts in the deserts of Mars. Meanwhile back on Chung Kuo, Li Yuan is becoming more of a recluse and tragedy is in store for his family. A wonderful read and I guarentee you won't be able to put the book down.
