A return to ecological cyberpunk for Stephen Palmer, with Manserphine of the Shrine of Our Sister Crone working with a pair of ancient cyborgs to try to prevent a "flower crash" - the demise of the botanical information systems of Zaidmouth. Meanwhile Fnfayrq of the Sea-Clerics and Nuiy, new recruit to the authoritarian Shrine of the Green Man, try to use the flower crash to re-engineer Zaidmouth society in their favour.
Many elements are reminiscent of Palmer's earlier books, 'Memory Seed' and 'Glass', but 'Flowercrash' is definitely its own book. Strong characters, powerfully emotional scenes and some thought-provoking political matter make 'Flowercrash' an excellent read.
