Eli, is now a face of the resistance whether he wants to be or not. His fugue state is also changing it is taking him deeper and for longer. It is showing him so much more not just how to paint anymore, and he doesn't know who he can trust to talk about this with, it seems everyone has their own agenda when it comes to him. This is another wonderful action packed, suspenseful book set in the future where the Ascenders (human/machine hybrids) are the powerful, the revered, the feared, and the pitied (at least by some like Eli). Is Eli the coming bridge or not, that is the huge question that both the resistance and the Ascenders want to know now, and will go to great lengths to find out.
I have been fan of Ms. Quinn's books for a long time and that hasn't changed with this book, it was awesome.
