How sad that Joshua Gayou, the author of the amazing commune series, didn’t take the time to fully flesh this book out. I think if he had written it over 2-3 novels, the book would have been great but, as it is, it’s a mess. The first half is great as it explores the meaning of consciousness but then the second half turns into a terrible Bourne sequel. The ending... oh dear. One of the most terrible endings to have been put into a book.
