Context: Book Two of the Nulapeiron Sequence

John Meaney, Author . Pyr $25 (535p) ISBN 978-1-59102-335-7

Replete with thought-provoking ruminations on the nature of space and time, Meaney's second Nulapeiron book (after Paradox ) follows Tom Corcorigan as the logosopher and one-armed warrior, now a lord, seeks an antidote for the femtocyte toxins that are slowly killing him. Tom and his chief of security and future inamorata, Capt. Elva Strelsthorm, meet with the mysterious Seer, whose projected visions force Elva to download her personality (and the Seer's all-important information) to a twin sister. Aided by a vision from the Seer, Tom determines to recover Elva in a single-minded quest that's threatened by the invasion of the vicious, alien Dark Fire. While readers may find the personal stories of the characters more accessible than the almost overly detailed realm of Nulapeiron, they should enjoy the exquisite world building of this ambitious SF epic.
