4.0 out of 5 stars A fine story. Sept. 18 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I must respectfully disagree with the reviewer from Seattle: of all FASA's current Shadowrun novel authors, Stephen Kenson is the most knowlegable about the mileu (something you cannot reliably count on the others to be). Also inarguably he is the most knowlegable about the magic-related themes that this novel revolves around (he is the author of "Magic in the Shadows").
This book is not quite as good as Technobabel, but it is a fine story, involving several Boston related figures (see "Target:UCAS") and the mage Talon (late of Assets Inc, who Kenson introduced in Dunkelzahn's Secrets). One of the major story threads - that one's Enemies can come from within and not just from some dark metaplane, was very well handled. In fact, there are some characters in my SR campaign who's pasts might similarly come back to haunt them. . .

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty ....good book Nov. 17 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WOW! Rarely do I pick up a book and it grips me right away. I decided to read this one because I left the book I meant to read at work that night. I skimmed the prologue and was hooked and the book was devoured in days. Talon a street mage from Boston must deal with the mistakes of his past. Youthful anger and loss can create your worst enemies. How do you do battle when the enemy is of yourself. yadd yadda. All I can say is it is not a disappointment. I have long strayed from the shadowrun world of books, but now I may come back....

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea - poor performance! May 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This novel is for people who like cartoons, the people in it act like it, they are genuine cartoon characters. While there is nothing wrong with that at all and this kind of writing sometimes guarantees relaxing entertainment, the action in this book is very often delayed by lenghty background information that does not serve any purpose, and by endless dialogues. Either we want a cartoon-like book with fast cartoon-like action or a normal sf- or fantasy novel. You cannot have both.
