After ten thousand years in exile, the cyber-warriors return in their fleet of spaceships to the planet that rejected them: Earth.
Power vs responsibiliy, and what make a society stable ? Food for the thought, packaged in a good action plot.
I found the approach unexpected - even though by the end of chapter 3 there is little doubt about how the story will conclude, that leaves room for an amazing amount of suspense in just what the path will be to get to that foregone conclusion. Also the changes in points of view - first person for the demi and third person for the cybs - are a good way to unrelentingly underscore the impersonal outlook of the cybs as opposed to the demi's beliefs that life must be lived "whole-body".
All in all the best science fiction book I have read in a while. I realize it's been published for some time but that just means it's still worthwhile to browse outside of the newly-published book selections.
I'm prone to multi-volumne series, but this one is short but sweet.
