This story takes the promises of Machinations and makes them both more personal and puts them on a grander scale. From the first page, Stone manages to make up the tension and stakes. Counterpart is a page turner, but it also dives deep into the questions of what it means to be human, what it means to be a leader, and what it means to be human. There are some truly beautiful moments and some nail-biting scenes, but throughout, I was so engrossed, I just had to know what happened next. Rhona is such an incredibly nuanced character, you can't help but care about her. Even when you hate the decisions she makes, you want to know that she'll make it all right in the end.
So when's the next book coming out because I need to know if [redacted] manages to save [redacted], and if [redacted] survives the [redacted] Also, what's up with [redacted]? How do you even redeem someone who [redacted]?
Rhona and Camus and the other characters from the first book are fighting for the place of humans in the world. The machines are back in force, but the book takes several plot side roads and continually surprises the reader. I truly had no idea where this was going until Ms.Stone brought me there.
Forget what you hear or read about sequels, Machinations is a great read and Counterpart is too - but even better.
The story is complex engaging. There are so many layers, it feels like a Matryoshka doll - open up one to find another nestled snugly inside. On the outside, the battle between humans and machines rages. Under that, humanity is caught in a flurry of political machinations with different sides fighting for control. Finally, here is poor Rhona trying to figure out who she is amidst the chaos.
Counterpart is a wild ride!
