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. Audiobook narrator Nick Podehl made this world even better by lending his voice (or maybe I should say voices) to this awesome book and ascending the listener to another level, if you are a audiobook listener like me than this is one you will not want to miss Mr. Podehl is wonderful performance, somehow I missed the first book and will have to go back and find that one so I can listen to this one again, it is that good.
