Falling Down the Aether Sky
Author: Sekji Ani
Ruby becomes a courier, carrying data through 'Space. Lin is held in a secure compound in Wyoming, hacking his way to cyber weaponry, people and information. Add in other side characters who also flit between fleshly lives and the fantasy world in 'Space until all collide in a single event that will change the world.
It didn't take me long to get sucked into this intriguing, interesting trip into a dystopian, disfunctional world created by extreme virtual reality. Society changes. People change. Everything has evolved, widening a breach between Flesh and 'Space. The characters are engaging. The thoughts the plot evokes are intriguing. I thoroughly enjoyed this story!
The book was definitely written a sequel in mind. There is no final resolution at the end, and the last line is "End of Book 1.'' The second book, Approaching the Well of Still Time, will be forthcoming soon.
This is Sekji Ani's first book. Learn more about the author and her book here.
