It took me a while to get this book, but I finally managed to buy and read it. The only trouble is that it took me about 4 hours to read this book. I guess I’ll just have to be happy to read Pushing Ice and House of Suns again later this week.
The Prefect is the first of Alastair Reynolds’ books that takes place during the so-called Golden Age of humankind. Chasm City is almost in La Belle Époque, but during the voyage from Sky’s Edge to Yellowstone, the Melding Plague hit and La Belle Époque was over.
