Once again another brillant concept from the amazing Alastair Reynolds.
Without giving anything away is like Mad Max meets The Time Machine, with just a dash of the mystical. The story follows Quillion, a pathologist from the Neon Heights level of the last human city on earth called Spearpoint. Spearpoint and the rest of the world has been rendered into “zones” of technological/evolutionary . . . epochs. The story captures you right from the start and keeps you guessing about why the world is the way it is. A must read for all sci-fi fans
