Summary

PJ Manney continues her action-packed, thought-provoking science-fiction series with the sequel to the Philip K. Dick Award - nominated (R)evolution.

In the guise of political revolutionary Thomas Paine, bioengineer Peter Bernhardt brought down the corrupt and powerful Phoenix Club - and then turned revolution into evolution by becoming the first artificial human intelligence: Major Tom. In the two years since Major Tom revealed his digital existence and spread his freedom manifesto, he has been revered as a god and vilified as a demon. The United States and Europe have splintered into ideologically independent regions. Russia and China prepare to expand their empires.

In the midst of the chaos, pirates attack a seastead in the Pacific Ocean, capturing one of Major Tom's allies. A mysterious and powerful group wages a secret war. To rescue his ally, Major Tom must first regain his own humanity and somehow save a species he no longer identifies with, and which seems determined to destroy itself.

Don't even start reading it...

NOTE:If you read my reviews you'll find most are positive. But I do feel a duty to help others when I feel that they shouldn't even read a book.

Skip book 1 too. I liked book 1, had an interesting concept I had never read before. But Book 2 wanders aimlessly through limp technical innovation ideas, inconsistent character development and ultimately a weak ending between the anti-hero and the protagonist. The supporting cast oddly pushes him to do something, supports his efforts and then despises his decisions despite their work to help him. It ends with a fizzle considering all the tech wiz stuff up to that point. It literally feels like you (the reader) are in the exact same spot as where the 1st book ended. How is it possible for so much to have happend but nothing changed from where the book started? If you read it (I did audible) know that I warned you that it is a gross waste of time with a wandering incomplete story with no depth.

Good but hard to follow. Kept having to go back. A lot of "huh!?!" moments.

Thought plot for new lands.

Has all the tags of great science fiction. Best of all teases the real world potential of these new threads coming together.

Idiotic characters!

I hated this book. The characters are idiotic and completely given over to their emotions.
