Book 5 takes a couple of twists that I didn't see coming but is wonderful. I am starting book 6 as soon as I finish this review.
I'll keep this review short and sweet:
This is the best entry in the series so far. Command of drama and tension. Character introduction and development. Emotional intelligence. Suspense. Surprise. All of it. This one floored me. I haven't felt this good since I finished reading book one of the series. I'm writing this review after finishing book 6. I had to go back and re-read book 5 to make sure I wasn't going crazy. Yes, this one is that good.
In the Mechanical Heart, the Dream Team is still on the hunt for Strata's son. It's driving the team into some high-stakes danger and I'll share that there is death in the Real World. I won't spoil who/what/when/how as that would make me a douche canoe.
Morning Assassin continues to be, well, Morning Assassin. He has evolved into a likeable and capable resource for the Dream Team.
Quantum is making strides to plant himself in the RW and he even makes a friend out of FDA/PTSD Monitor #1351885. In fact, I look forward for future development here.
There are still loads of pop-culture references sprinkled throughout the book with Doc and Quantum, being the old pair, doing most of the one-liners. Sophia does make an attempt, though. The Brits have a smaller role in this installment, but Pip gets to spend some quality time with his Sheep. Oh, Tom Myspace is alive and well in the Proxima World.
The majority of this book centers on the quest to find Strata's son. There is a powerful roadblock in the team's way and it is brutal.

General Theme (minor spoilers)
This 5th book continues to follow our group of RPG heroes as they zip in and out of a virtual reality realm that has turned out to be much more than a simply virtual reality video game. Actions and events have profound effects and consequences in the real world.
Some thoughts on "The Mechanical Heart"...
Another exciting and oft times hilarious read was we follow the antic of a group of misfit gamers. Starring, of course, the center of attention, Quantum Hughes.
After 5 books of returning to one variation or another of a virtual reality video game, you'd be tempted to think that you'd become bored or numb to the repetitive nature of the writing and storyline... not so. Harmon Cooper is an author of considerable skill allowing him to entertain his readers with fresh ideas, scenarios, dialogues and humor.
This series is to be 8 books long... 5 down; 3 to go (I can hardly wait).
As it is... 5 Stars
A totally flawed main character who has the best banter with his Dream Team (whether they understand it or not);
Twists and turns that come up from nowhere and bite you on the bum;
Quantum's (non-/maybe/on/off) relationships with the NVA Seed, Dolly, and Frances Euphoria;
The UK Assassins are back! They get more like Daphne Moon's brothers in 'Frasier' every time;
Quantum's constant breaking of rules balanced with his totally unique use in combat of the items in his Inventory List...simian flinging poo, anyone?;
FUN! In particular with his FDA Monitor, who actually turns out to be useful (and nice);
Then betrayal, death and utter...utter...sadness.
So riveting and entertaining. I can only wait patiently with everyone else for the revenge to take place along the line. It will be worth it.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.
