After waiting ages for the right paperback version of this to be published, I finally caved and read the hardcover :)

We finally delve depeer into the Mercant family and we get our first proper look at what it means to be an Anchor (and what Designation A is actually doing) with the main characters both being As.
I don't want to talk too much about the plot, but the collapse of the PsyNet is still imminent and the Council's plan to cut it into pieces is being discussed. The book is, in my opinion, more focused on the main characters and their relationship as well as their contrasting families, but we do get a great side dish of world-building (amazing as always) and a few glimpses of well-known and loved characters.

The story is a fast read as you can't put it back down but also because it's just a really nice read. There was nothing major that kept me at the edge of my seat with anticipation or dread. And then came the last half page of the Epilogue ...
Suffice to say that I am eagerly awaiting the next book.
