A monstrous presence stalks the streets of war-torn Baghdad. He's a composite of body-parts who were themselves victims of violence. He kills to give justice to these victims of which he's made. Yet in a land of endless violence seeking justice might never end. The deeper you get into this book the more the de-stabilized region of a once-great city becomes the true monster. Genre as social critique at its finest. ~ Reviewed by Elias Siqueiros
This is the second novel of the "Remembrance Of Earth's Past" trilogy. Every now and then a sequel turns out to be better than the first novel. This is one of those sequels. Earth is still under threat from the Trisolaris invasion. The invasion is to arrive in four hundred years. That's barely enough time for Earth to develop its technology to a satisfactory level so that it can defend itself. This novel spans a time period of several centuries. Earth develops rapidly, even becoming a bit of an utopia with many of its social ills having been solved. But when advance probes are noted to be arriving before the main invasion fleet just how well-prepared can it be?
