Give him ten pages and you'll be downloading the second book. If you enjoy quirky and banter filled dialogue, science fantasy concepts described from the point of view of a character who doesn't fundamentally understand them and lines that would get you slapped for uttering them in polite company, this is your read this weekend.
The plot is interesting, and most of the book is a page-turner. The combination of mystery and action is captivating. The technological/philosophical foundation of the secret organization Bueren finds himself working for is refreshingly original and appealing to artists of the various mediums. It causes one to think about the balance of the maths and sciences that lead to our technological progress and the various art forms that add value to our lives. It will be interesting to see what other works this artist will produce as he progresses as a writer.
