Strange and fascinating. Big points to Watts for writing a 'series' in which the books are totally different. Some characters and the history carry through, but the jumps between books are so major that the individual stories fall into very different contexts and the stories are very different, rather than larger chapters of a single tale.

Specifically, this one explores a curiously undirected war in an evolution of cyberspace, with little of the action underwater; additionally the human canvas for this one is amazingly broad, compared to the small insular community of Starfish. The futurism here is actually more credible here in some ways.
