The partially-terraformed world of Fulgar is ruled by the transhuman Luculenti, cognition-enhanced aristocrats reminiscent of those in Walter Jon Williams’ Aristoi. Sunadomari Tetsuo is an expert hacker who has recently been upraised to Luculentus status, and has to go into hiding after discovering the wrong information— just when his mother, Sunadomari Yoshiko, is due for a visit. As Tetsuo stays away from his pursuers and Yoshiko attempts to find out what happened to him, they both uncover corruption among the Luculenti and the trail of a transhuman serial killer.

Meaney has a well-visualized far future; he has a background in both physics and computer science (as do I), and I find the science in his fiction good. The story builds up to quite the page-turner; it kept me up late last night. There were some rough edges here and there where some pieces didn’t quite fit together, but all in all this is a good first novel. ( )
