I’ve always loved the speculative fiction idea of creating a world with something strange about it (such as magically inert computers) and finding out what happens when this core belief of the society goes funny somehow. It’s always interesting to see how a society reacts when it is turned upon its ear, and Thea and her society have firmly been turned upon their ears. In addition, Ms. Alexander has set up a great overarching plot about creation and creativity and dreams, and I much await the third volume in order to see how that will be resolved.
She gives me 4.5 out of 5 stars for this one!
