Mystery, thriller, with a heavy dose of science fiction (or fantasy) serving as the crux of the story, B.V. Larson's Technomancer is a surprisingly entertaining read.
Early in the book's setting, I was often reminded of Neil Gaiman's American Gods. However, the further I read, the further separated the books became, and for the better. Where I found American Gods to be an okay read that never provided any satisfaction to the intrigue it provided (or much sense from the protagonist), Technomancer provided a more practical reading experience and effectively builds on the intrigue. Though most of the characters are not terribly deep and ultimately forgettable, like American Gods many compliment the story to provide an added level of interest, if only to further sustain the plot. Larson used many of them effectively as opposed to relegating them to plot devices. Several reviews have drawn comparisons with other works by various authors; I have not read the ones mentioned so American Gods was the only story I found parallels to, though minor.
Larson has an easy to read writing style and seems to make a concerted effort when describing a sequence of events or actions so that the reader does not get lost or confused. He is also a logical writer, at least in the three books I have read thus far, where the reader can see the methodical process by which the protagonist comes to a decision or realization. Though this process can sometimes become tedious to read, Larson's style is not one to dwell for long periods with introspection, and that is why Technomancer, though somewhat procedural in its execution, was so entertaining. It has a brisk pace and does not waste your time wading through mundane story telling.
In short, Technomancer is a fun, entertaining story, a promising start to the Unspeakable Things series, and I look forward to reading more.
