Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Edelman presents a gritty, tech-heavy thriller that builds on cyberpunk tropes in interesting and detailed new ways. The world developed in 2008's MultiReal and 2009's Infoquake has become inflamed with civil war and rebellion as MultiReal, a technology that mathematically projects possible futures to aid in decision making, suddenly becomes inaccessible. Into this chaos, MultiReal-D makes its first tentative appearance, building on the earlier technology to allow the user to essentially exist in multiple time lines for 60 seconds. Numerous characters seek their own goals in a labyrinthine plot, but Edelman does manage to bring his disparate threads together to create a coherent and even cohesive conclusion that's most accessible and satisfying to those who have read the earlier books.

From Library Journal:

A civil war threatens to break out among members of the worldwide Defense and Wellness Council. Adding to the turmoil, Islander and prison escapee Quell leads a rebellion by a determined minority of individuals unconnected to the global genetically implanted communications network. At the novel's heart is Natch, possessor and victim of a world-changing multiple-reality program known as MultiReal. His choice will save or destroy the world. VERDICT Taking cyberpunk to the next level, this conclusion to Edelman's trilogy (Infoquake, MultiReal) presents a drama of future technology that combines action with psychosocial intrigue. Tension comes as much from the clash of ideas as from physical confrontation. Highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
