There is a war being waged upon us. They are not after our souls, those come later, but they are after the biological part of us that controls the decisions that the soul makes on a daily basis, our minds.
I was not prepared for this one. Reading the breif synopsis on Amazon intrigued me, but, my god, was it inadequate.
The conclusion of Leviathan Wakes left me with more questions than answers, the beginning of Caliban's War had my mind racing with even more questions but equally, more excitement.
Set in the the future after a worldwide disaster known as "The Fall", Iron City stands as the last safe haven for humans while being eclipsed by Zolom, the last of the sky cities. Alita: Battle Angel has the feel of a crossover between steampunk, anime, and cybernetic futurism.
Have you ever found yourself watching your favorite horror film and it has gotten to the point where the pretty girl is about to die? You know that she shouldn't go down that alley or into the woods, and she knows that the killer is there, but she decides to path directly into him or her. I don't know about you, but I genuinely get angry when I see such stupidity. I am not talking about when the pretty girl has no clue that the killer is lying in wait, but that she clearly understands that the killer is there and proceeds to scream or make noise to give away her position. I am not so naive to assume that those characters have the same training or tenacity as the killer, but if your life is in danger, and you simply need to sit still and not whimper, why in the hell would you make any noise?
