My Rating ~ 4 bites and a nibble

A small pocket of surviving Machine Monks struggle to protect the Actuator against the orcs of their fantasy realm. Xenwyn, the creator of the realm, is injured and in a coma. If they restore this section of the world then she will die. When reinforcements arrive, the small group is relieved. Red loves Xenwyn and seeks to heal her before that happens, so he makes off with her. Meanwhile Jon goes off to Florida looking for another key. Dragon Star sets out to track down the saboteur. Glass heads to Denver searching out books with information about the Actuator. Cindy holds down the fort with Zach and his reinforcements. But is everyone going off in different directions a good thing? We’re about to find out.

There is a LOT going on in this next book of the series. However, it does not stand alone. There are many characters doing many things in all kinds of directions as well as terminology and science stuff that you will most likely be lost if you don’t start from the beginning. Which I highly recommend you do because this is one of the most creative books I’ve read in a long time. It’s mind boggling. And it will leave you thinking about the logistics of it and the massive undertaking. Plus, how incredibly fucked up the world now is because of someone sabotaging the Actuator. Millions, most likely billions, of people have died. Wut? Well-written with great characters, the ending will leave you with your jaw on the floor. Things had already gone sideways, how the hell did it just get sooooo much worse?!
