A story that initially had me cringing from bleeding heart political commentary about our current world, quickly cycloned into a fantastically dark vision of planetary disaster and stepping into the galaxy. Deeper into the story I was delighted with glimpses into the dark mind of Baxter. It falls short of epic but only by a few chapters. Still room for more story but would be better left unanswered by more books. I'd love to see if Baxter can try this story idea again. Humans, every one of them can multiply exponentially the intelligence of the universe. We are love and light and not separate from this universe in any way. More notes on this tone would have brought this story to EPIC. A great read. Ill read Flood next.
