A hacker is drawn out of hiding and into an epic geopolitical showdown in the frighteningly plausible conclusion to Eliot Peper’s critically acclaimed Analog Series.
When you’ve betrayed your revolutionary cadre, an off-grid fight club on a remote tropical island is a good place to hide—or die.
For notorious ex-hacker Emily Kim, the outcome of each fight makes little difference. Black-market blood sport is the perfect self-imposed penance. But when she stumbles on a plot to overthrow the corporate empire that provides the ubiquitous global feed, Emily discovers her old friends have been targeted. Warning them will force her out into the open, back on-grid, and directly into danger. Emily can’t escape the past. But can she seize the future?
Emily’s quest for redemption spirals into an all-out shadow war. What constitutes justice in a world run by algorithms? The feed—and Emily—must be reinvented. Or destroyed.

I read the previous book in the series and liked it quite a bit. This book was not as good in my opinion. The plot flows well and the characters are adequately developed by the author. My issue comes with he political themes and overtones. This book is essentially a propaganda piece. I do not mind an author putting their opinions in their work, but this was as much a editorial as it was an entertainment piece. Like I said, well written and interesting, but if you want to avoid politics, this is not your book.
