Title: Crashland
   Author: Sean Williams
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: November 4th, 2014

     The Matrix meets the Uglies series in this science fiction thriller, the second in the Twinmaker trilogy by Sean Williams.

     Where is Q?

     Clair and Jesse have barely been reunited when the world is plunged into its biggest crisis since the Water Wars. The d-mat network is broken. The world has ground to a halt. People are trapped, injured, dying. It’s the end of the world as Clair knows it—and it’s partly her fault.

     “The girl who killed d-mat” is enlisted to track down her missing friend Q—the rogue AI who repeatedly saved Clair’s life. Q is the key to fixing the system, but she isn’t responding to calls for help, and even if she did...can she be trusted?

     Targeted by dupes, abandoned by her friends, caught in a web of lies that strike at the very essence of who she is, Clair finds powerful allies in RADICAL, secretive activists who are the polar opposite of anti-d-mat terrorist group WHOLE. However, if she helps them find Q, will she be inadvertently trapping her friend in a life of servitude—or worse, sending her to an early death by erasure?

     Caught between pro- and anti-d-mat philosophies, in a world on the brink of all-out war, Clair must decide where she stands—and who she stands with, at the end.

My Stance:

     I have Twinmaker novel on my shelf and it's on my list to get to. I won't comment much on this book much at all, frankly I want to read Twinmaker first. I really haven't looked at Crashland at all, other than the expectations for this book is rather high. I hadn't really ever heard of Twinmaker prior to an episode of Tea Time over at Epic Reads, The concept of Twinmaker really kind of shocked me, yea it looks and feels like Ugly, but there is something deeper to the novel that makes the book that much better.

     This is a short little look at, but this book shouldn't be given the short glance. There is such great potential and expectation riding on this book, to overlook it at all. Stevens already delivered a book that people have fond over, The reviews have been pretty good with the book and I will get around to the book asap. I am looking forward to Twinmaker honestly, it's been a book that I've wanted to take a risk on, and see where it took me.
