I’m going to give you one last piece of advice Get it together or get taken apartThis is another of those novels that’s been receiving a measure of bad press; some reviews here on Goodreads are uite scathing to say the least A possible injustice that has been done the book and the author is the comparison to Neuromancer Necromancer because frankly it really isn’t the same thing I’m fairly convinced that readers have been charging into The Mirrored Heavens only to find themselves somewhat bewildered hence all the negativity They’re upping their gameRapidlyThe one thing I will say for this novel it’s in high gear all the time See this is one of those over the top books that I inevitably end up enjoying even though I probably shouldn’t Mirrored Heavens is a novel about intelligence and counter intelligence and at its heart of hearts it attempts to be a political techno thriller However it’s rather easy to lose sight of all this because in practice what this novel really is about is big explosions They’re warped here and there They’re far from brokenHe means to change thatOne of the actual problems here is that the writing sometimes borders on cryptic More than once I simply had to wonder what exactly the author was trying to say It does convey a measure of atmosphere and I never really struggled to follow the plot but I’m not sure whether this tactic actually works in the book’s favour They don’t seem to have spotted him They’re about to though He releases the safeties of his wrist gunsAnd the combat starts up Mirrored Heavens contains some pretty decent power armour action although some fight scenes did seem to go on indefinitely The story is built on the premise of the Mechanic combat component and Razor hacking component team and the tactics that can be deployed in such a combination Textbook procedure the razor’s wreaked havoc with the base’s security and surveillance systems allowing the mech to move untracked inside the perimeter and reach the inner enclave where the house node itself is situated Sometimes both razor and mech aren’t necessary But this base is well protectedNot uite cutting edge; not uite grimy used future – but the novel does have its charm occupying a fairly edgy middle ground where nothing and nobody is what it seems there really is a bewildering array of factions and agendas The novel isn’t entirely sure what it wants to be either skirting uite a few genres in haphazard fashion but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing I uite enjoyed the mix It comes down to this It always would You always knew it This is your moment This is your time”“That’s what I’m afraid of”The novel is grotesuely violent on occasion – expect some blood “What have we unleashed”We’re left with a ludicrously convoluted futuristic Anime like Mission Impossible that takes place on both Earth and Moon with elements of Tom Clancy Robert Ludlum and Total Recall add to that some Sci Fi tropes like power armour hacking Artificial Intelligence cybernetics and memory implants and a smidgen of Horror Now you have an inkling “Open the door while I cover you with the house weapons”“The house weapons”“Gatling guns mounted in the ceilings”35 stars

Time of shifting loyalties the enemy could be anyone from a shadowy assassin working a uestionable mission on the dark side of the moon to a Euro data thief working under deep cover and wooed into a dangerous pact As the crisis mounts and the search for Autumn Rain spans both Earth and Moon the lives of all those involved will converge in one explosive finale and a startling aftermath that will rewrite everything they’ve ever known about their mission their world and themselves. I was enthralled by the scenario of this book which was extremely detailed and well thought out The book is set in 2110 during a second Cold War and it starts with a bang a huge terrorist attack that turns the tension into action The book is extremely fast paced and deals with agents doing their things in the Earth Moon systemOn the negative side there's not a lot of character development The characters are all acting and reacting and talking tough Still I will definitely be finishing the trilogy and am looking forward to itWe're interviewing the author here at SFFaudio will provide a link when it postsVery cool trailer
