The Fractal Prince
"The good thing is, no one will ever die again. The bad thing is, everyone will want to."
A physicist receives a mysterious paper. The ideas in it are far, far ahead of current thinking and quite, quite terrifying. In a city of "fast ones," shadow players, and jinni, two sisters contemplate a revolution.
Jean de Flambeur is back. And he's running out of time.
In Hannu Rajaniemi's sparkling follow-up to the critically acclaimed international sensation The Quantum Thief, he returns to his awe-inspiring vision of the universe...and we discover what the future held for Earth.

Mindblowing. At times very majestic. No one writes of using 17 black holes to peel a star, but Rajaniemi does. Reminds me of the way Clarke describes Dave's journey into the monolith. The imagery is very ornate and awe-inspiring. Although difficult to read at times, it's worth pushing through in order to advance the story. It has an altogether different pace to it than QUANTUM THIEF but then again, EMPIRE STRIKES BACK isn't A NEW HOPE either. Recommend this and the QUANTUM THIEF for people who are huge science fiction fans as this would be too much for the casual fan.
