This isn't a single coherent work. It's a bunch of story fragments, with a wide variety of different characters, different plotlines, and different technologies. This is like seeing tiny segments of trailers of different movies, jumbled together into a single trailer. And all of the glimpses of the movie trailers make you want to see each individual movie.
From this tiny sampling, the author sets the stage for what I hope will be an epic series of excellent novels. I really, really, really want to read them when they are done.
