What a surprise. What I thought would be a 300-page novel with nothing but high-tech jets and Air Force strategy turned into something completely different.

First off, this isn't a novel. It's one of those sneaky novels-told-with-connecting-short-stories things. And secondly, the military porn is held at bay (mostly) in favor of the author's ruminations. namely: What is humanity? And: What is mankind's relationship with the machines he builds?

"Yukikaze was the heroine of her own story, A spirit of the air who ruled the skies, She was the queen of the wind."
