Review

Rating: 7

Like Banks’ work Feersum Endjinn, this book slips easily between multiple narrators, but also manages to jump back and forth between time, recounting event in the past and present (though one narrator’s “present” may be another’s future), and between universes. The characters are fascinating, particularly as their personality traits may change with the universe they’re inhabiting. This work, in many ways, feels like a quantum superposition of some of Moorcock’s best works and is uniquely Banks.
