'Have you had a dream you were so sure was real?'

This is not a 'Come with me if you want to live' story. The main character is not some oblivious and helpless person waiting for rescue. The man known as 'Emerald' is no stranger to violence nor making sure he comes out on top. Until the mystery woman appears and his whole world shifts.

This book is Terminator meets the Matrix meets Universal Soldier as settings that are familiar are overrun by weirdness from somewhere else. The narrator does well with the tough job of switching between the sizeable group of main-secondary characters, especially during the many action scenes. Even some of the more normal scenes have their own brand of fast paced action.

The story revolves around the consequences of what can happen when things are discarded or mishandled because they are not understood by the people that find them. The platform of the book itself, the sa'vine is a far reaching enough idea that it can easily spread well beyond the bounds of this story into others without stretching or over-reaching anything. I'm hoping I can acquire book 2 to see how the story continues.
