With the same major caveat as listed in my previous review (the book, save its bonus chapter, are available for free on-line), the second chapter of the Anachronauts saga is available for sale. Those who read The First Age (or, indeed, Gagne's previous works) knows what to expect in terms of tone and writing style: a finely-walked line between the surrealistically humorous and the darker character-based spotlights. This particular installment doesn't have as overtly dark a tone as the previous installment, and there's no rising current of dangerous stakes flowing in this narrative, either; the chapters are much more self-contained than in The First Age. However, it serves as an interesting travelogue to explore as-yet-unexplored areas of this universe and shine a light on a new set of characters, even though many of them were featured in the previous work.
Basically, if you thought the first book was an excellent investment of your money, you'll think the same of this one. It's a dramatic expansion of the Anachronauts universe mixed with wonderful character interplay. Not to mention, the bonus chapter is much more in line with the tone of the rest of the book per se than the bonus chapter from The First Age, while providing a glimpse into future storylines.
Another solid recommendation for those who enjoy speculative fiction.
