    1. "What is this?" I asked that question multiple times while reading this book, as I patiently flipped pages waiting for something, anything interesting to happen. Waited for the scenes of brutality to arc into something resembling beauty or insight. Waited for characters to make intelligent decisions and not decisions that the plot dictated they make.

    4. Another day, another parallel universe - sometimes it just seems too easy to hide a plot in a paradox. On the whole, it was a good page-turner and not over-stuffed with nonsenses (something you can’t say for every EDA). It’s brutal, for sure, as much as any Doctor Who book I’ve read. The casual cruelty, the disregard for life and justice, the complete absence of compassion are all too real and happening in too many places in our own time, on our own planet, but it makes for an often uncomf [...]
