My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I really wish I had read the Owner short stories before reading the first book, would have upped my enjoyment of things.
And since I’ve read them, I enjoyed this book a bit more. Seeing the Proctors come into being [even though it really felt very deus ex machina as to HOW they came into being], Saul’s plan to go somewhere else, the supersciences, the battles, the crazy earth lady. It all came together in one big ultra violent, messy shoot-em up masher.
