it was ok
Read in June, 2009

The first five hundred pages, give or take, read like they were written by China Miéville and William Gibson's lovechild. This is a wonderful thing. Unfortunately, the last hundred pages feel like Simon R. Green was brought in to write the ending. For those of you who aren't familiar, that means the ending just kind of craps out. Sad under any circumstances - tragic in this case.

Robert I'm with you. The ending was pulp while the buildup was literature, to me.
