Publisher's Summary

The official prequel novel to the highly anticipated film

A long time ago, there was the Great War. The reasons for the war have been lost to time. On the shattered surface of the earth, there is a metropolis that lives amid the garbage thrown down from the inhabitants of a sky city floating above it. Welcome to Iron City. 

A lonely doctor specializing in cyborg repair, Ido, is doing his best to help the citizens of Iron City. But Ido has a double life, another persona born from the pieces of his broken heart.

Hugo, a young man surviving on a life of crime, spots the ultimate steal: an object that will unearth secrets from his own past. 

And Vector, the most powerful businessman in the city, has his sights set on a new technology that will change the future of Iron City forever....

Meh

How to make a prequel book off a movie script yet to be released.....this is why we don’t do that. There is no character dev whatsoever . It jumps around way to much. I’m not even going to try the next book. Movie looks interesting enough though.

meh, {cubed}

Its an adventure story set in the future with the obligatory sci fi phrases thrown in to assert as such.
It reads as a "young reader adventure" with very graspable concepts and language.
Sci fi phrasing could easily be replaced with magical phrasing and story line would still equally register.
So.. so regret getting it. quit 3rd of the way through and will not bother with Alita series.
Sooo much regret....
Anticipation for movie is tempered now, I still look forward to view movie but will now watch with jaundiced eye.

...thanks book (/s).
