Berg's book is a different take on a dystopia, utilizing a setting 400 years after an apocalypse has largely set humanity back to its ancient ways. The exception is within the Church, where a Saint--a rare woman born with DNA that makes her compatible with haphazard ancient computers--manages the city, utilities, and keeps her people alive. Hunter Echo is raised within the Church as a kind of elite military police officer, and she knows something almost no one else does: the current Saint was unwilling. And the faltering technology around the Church is evidence of that. Echo's doubts drive her out of the Church and into the city, where she finds rebels who have revived dangerous archaic items that threaten to undo society.

It's a fast, tense read in an incredibly dark world. Echo is a good guy who is still cold and ruthless. I can see her callousness as being a turn off to some readers, but I took her as she was: a killing machine who is gradually growing a conscience. The book ends with a very dramatic cliffhanger, which makes me eager to read the next installment, which comes out in March. ( )
