A reality-altering trek that challenges the conventions of a saturated genre by infusing tradional fantasy concepts not only with modern, and even advanced, technology but also with a slippery moral tone. This keeps the book interesting and intriguing throughout. The book is written eloquently and the author's vision is clearly explained. One minor problem is the fact that it is written at such a fast pace, with so many new ideas, that the reader may have trouble understanding the minor ideas. However, the overall plot is well concieved with twisting narratives and believable characters. The climax solves all questions and satiates all expectations leaving the reader fulfilled. Overall, this unique book is a magnificent work for the genre and is worth reading twice.
