Don't waste your time yet. Or money. It's not a full book.
A book has an ending. Not this book, but all OTHER books in the world. A trilogy consists of 3 parts of a continuous story. The author always (as far as I know until NOW), has a mini wrap up ending to the individual books while still leaving the story open for the next one. Not here. I just finished The Human Blend and spent a good 20 minutes first yelling that I thought the book was defective and missing pages, then infuriated that I'd wasted my time getting into a story that's not done, then looking online to see if anyone else has this problem. I mean, it JUST ENDS. And the author, on his website, says he MEANT TO DO THAT.
I quote, "It's always difficult when a trilogy is written as a single continuous narrative and the first and second books are not written with individual endings. "
Yeah, because THAT'S NOT HOW YOU DO IT! I mean, if the first and second book have no individual endings, all you have is an incomplete book that somehow you managed to get published. Like, 'oh, I could use some money but I can't wait to FINISH this book, I'll just publish the first bit, say it will be a trilogy, write no ending, and collect a paycheck.'
So, in short, if you MUST read this, wait till all three are out unless you're a glutton for abrupt and terrible non-end endings.
