Ventus by Karl Schroeder at the time of reading I didn’t think had been publish and so I spent the entire book wondering why a publisher had let something this enjoyable get past them. It turns out I was wrong the book has been published but the author released the novel online as a free ebook when his second book was published.

Ventus is a great far future sci-fi novel that manages to combine a nice element of high fantasy. Its set on the world of Ventus terraformed into an Eden like world by a planetary wide net of nano machines for man... the problem is when man arrived they no longer recognised man as their creators. Human are barely tolerated on Ventus and yet unable leave as they’ve been forced back to a pre 18th century like exists by the nano tech that destroy any higher technology perceiving it as threat to the ecological balance of the world. Its more than that but really to say any more spoil some nice twists and ideas.
