I got this for free on amazon, no idea how or why, other than that’s a pretty cool cover that ultimately had absolutely nothing to do with the story.
And about that story, whew lad, I wish I could say that I enjoyed it, but it felt like 10 different stories all written to the concept phase, then muddled together with some barely acceptable narrative glue that didn’t do it for me at all.
That cover sure is cool though.
