untitled

Shadowhawk takes a look at the sequel to Stephanie Saulter’s fantastic near-future AI debut from last year.

“When a debut is as awesome as Gemsigns was last year, you expect the debut to be even better. Binary doesn’t quite come across as fantastic as its predecessor, but it is still one of the best SF books I’ve read to date. Lots more industrial intrigue and politics this time, which are all just fascinating in the extreme. ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
