REVIEW: Falling Down the Aether Sky

Falling Down the Aether Sky
Author: Sekji Ani

The human race has become addicted to 'Space. The internet has morphed into the all-encompassing super virtual reality of 'Space, leading to a dystopian sociey where people spend most of their time in the fake, stimulating cyber world pumped directly into their brains via ports rather than living a real life, limited by flesh.

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.

**I won a copy of this book on The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.**
