Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is AWESOME!
No spoilers, no matter how much I want to go on and on about all the great things in this sequel, but I can say a few things.
If you loved how so many wonderful magical goodnesses came out of the magic system in Foundryside, how they could all argue reality out of commission, find new loopholes, reprogram it again, and do it all while being one of the biggest magical heists in modern fantasy, you will totally FREAK OUT when you see Shorefall.
Foundryside was all kinds of awesome and I just re-read it with great joy before picking up this ARC, but I have to admit that Shorefall totally runs with all the implications built up there and gives us DREAD and eventually FIREWORKS that put all that happened in Foundryside to shame.
The big boys (and girls) are back in town. No one is safe.
This book, for all its steampunk feels, is a programmer's dream. The rules make everything shine. But you know what is brighter than this?
What a fantastic book! I'm giving it all the praise! :)
