The story is average, and as I read I got used to skimming and skipping over portions of irrelevant exposition. The dystopian setting has some interesting elements to it and was enough to keep me going. Sadly, the plot jumped the shark about two-thirds in (see the 'spoiler alert' below if you want to know why) and I just shook my head and quit. Unless you are so in love with Corporate-Run dystopian settings that you can ignore horrible writing, I can't recommend this. I gave it two stars because of some amusing one-liners and jokes.
(SPOILER ALERT: do you like magic with your dystopian sci-fi? Especially when it comes completely out of the blue? One second I have guns and corporate bodyguards and gang wars, then I have inter-dimensional creatures and magical healing...)
If you have prime, you can borrow this for free. Don't even do that.
This is one of Mr Stackpole's better books. One of the few I've read more than once. Depressing, realistic, detailed and exciting. It's also based on a game which really exists, called Dark Conspiracy.
