In the future, the Beam network has taken over our lives -- but now, it's developing a life of its own.
WOW, This was brilliant, original and the best in this genre that I have read in a very long time. This is also a series I discovered by pure chance which following in the footsteps of both Asimov and the Matrix it is truly groundbreaking.
What I liked about this book is that it is so different and yet so recognisable. The technology whilst advanced can be traced back to what we have today and people are people and politics is politics no matter what technologies are at hand. The book covers a lot of ground and is full of interesting three dimensional characters and situations. The attention to detail is also incredible.
There is so much going on but the main story in this season is about Kai and Doc. A simple case of mistaken identity spirals out of control. At the same time another thread is about Leah and is the link into the next book.
What I don't like is the sales model, publishing a book in parts (or episodes) and bundling later into complete books (or seasons).
Highly recommend and not to be missed by all with a love of new technology, especially when offset against a backdrop of humanity.
