Read from January 09 to 18, 2012

While I expect to find a lot of hand-waving in this kind of fantastical alternate history, this book simply had too many elements that required a suspension of any kind of common sense. Robotic whores, electronic tracking devices, electricity with no known source, bullet-proof brass, zombies, vampires, shamanistic magic... It's like Resnick threw darts at a list of elements from other fantastical-type books and hoped it'd appeal to lots of people as a result. Resnick is a talented author and there wasn't anything wrong with the writing or characters. All the different elements just added up to a big ole mess, however, and one I'd just as soon I'd passed on by.
