How do you stage a mutiny when you’re only awake one day in a million? How do you conspire when your tiny handful of potential allies changes with each job shift? How do you engage an enemy that never sleeps, that sees through your eyes and hears through your ears, and relentlessly, honestly, only wants what’s best for you?

I have a policy of not reviewing books I don’t enjoy unless I have been specifically asked to review but hard to justify not giving at least some explanation in the awards. I have certain tastes as with any blogger but I do not have much love for hard SF tales that seem to sacrifice character for gritty dystopia. This book reminds me of M John Harrison but unfortunately, I’m not a fan of his work either. Its very much the type of book I bounce hard off and this makes no exception. Nothing for me to grab onto. Sadly a firm last in the category so far.
