Listen this book is not like Flex or The Flux. Flex was like childhood, filled with challenge, discovery and wonder. The Flux is like a teenager full of rebellion, power, and promise of a great future. Fix is like adulthood, you have to put your big adult pants on and pay the bills.
This isn't a book of wonder and joy, this is a book of consequences and responsibility. Not to say it isn't satisfying, or that it doesn't have joy and successes, because it does. This book builds towards an inevitable end that feels right.
When Flex came out, it was advertised as being similar to Breaking Bad (a comparison which holds fast in Fix). As I dug into the story, I could feel the same sick ache that comes with episodes like Ozymandias. Things get bad, and then they get beyond bad, and yet Ferrett finds a way to tie it together with hope and meaning (rather than grim nihilism). I finished Fix feeling satisfied (but still wanting more -- the ending doesn't do nearly enough to conclude things), and wishing that the world of Fix was one I could visit.
I began reading the 'Mancer series because I'm a fan of Ferrett's writing. I kept reading because it's that damn good. The 'Mancer series is one I'd recommend to people even if I wasn't familiar with Ferrett's other work, and that's probably the highest praise I can offer.
I enjoyed the was that Paul was sidelined and his powers cut back after the big ramp up at the end of the second book, and that allowed space for the other characters to step forward into the spotlight. Ferrett has a way of making his characters people you care about, and the final book is certainly emotional as they face stark choices of pain and sacrifice no matter what they choose. The actual ending was well thought out and emotionally satisfied. Pretty much the only sub-plot if did not fully like was the Valentine relationship grinding. With the two people in it being action oriented, it just seemed to be a little too angst filled. It still worked, but they seemed to just be stuck for a lot of the book.
The action and magic scenes are good and the descriptions of the consequences of the rifts over Europe were well thought out and described. As in the other two books, tons of gaming cultural references and even a little bit of Broadway mega hit references in a few chapter titles.
The book left me happy to have spent the time reading all three books and I look forward to Ferrett's next novel.
So, you could say I'm a fan, and naturally I had some high expectations for the final entry in the series. It exceeded all of these in ways I would never have dared to hope for. It's been a pleasure to see Ferrett's writing mature and improve, and it's clear he pulled out all the stops for this finale. It's addictive, well-paced, hilarious, and heart-rending. What are you still reading my review for? Go buy this bloody thing!
