Prometheus Award Best Book (nominee)
It is a time of breathtaking Singularity technology. A time when most human beings spend the majority of their lives in the alternate worlds of the cyberverse, the global mesh of full-immersion virtual realities. Traditional social and political structures are breaking down under the enormous weight of absolute creative freedom and terrestrial immortality. The invention of a device for resurrecting the dead is the catalyst which catapults the world into a struggle that will determine the shape of the future, the fate of government and religion, and even the nature of life itself. Virtual adventure and meatspace drama. Intrigue and suspense. Romance and bullet ballet. High ideals and low cunning. War of weapons, war of values. A brilliantly imagined technological backdrop. Vivid, vibrant characters. And something to make you think on almost every page.
