Description

M. T. Anderson meets Cory Doctorow in the exciting sequel to Twinmaker, from #1 New York Times bestseller Sean Williams, who also coauthors the Troubletwisters series with Garth Nix.

Clair and Jesse have barely been reunited when the world is plunged into its biggest crisis since the Water Wars. The d-mat network is broken. The world has ground to a halt. People are trapped, injured, dying. It's the end of the world as Clair knows it--and it's partly her fault. Now she's been enlisted to track down her friend Q, the rogue AI who repeatedly saved her life--and who is the key to fixing the system. Targeted by dupes, abandoned by her friends, and caught in a web of lies that strike at the very essence of who she is, Clair quickly finds powerful and dangerous allies. But if she helps them, will she be leading her friend straight into a trap? Caught between pro- and anti-d-mat philosophies, in a world on the brink of all-out war, Clair must decide where she stands--and who she stands with, at the end.

Review quote

Praise for TWINMAKER: TWINMAKER asks smart questions without easy answers, and presents a future so simultaneously wonderful and terrible you can only believe in it. A thrilling, existential head trip worthy of my favorite anime, I couldn t stop reading this book. More importantly, I couldn t stop thinking about it. --Garth Nix, author of the Old Kingdom series"

Back cover copy

Where is Q?

Clair and Jesse have barely been reunited when the world is plunged into its biggest crisis since the Water Wars. The d-mat network is broken. The world has ground to a halt. People are trapped, injured, dying. It's the end of the world as Clair knows it--and it's partly her fault.

"The girl who killed d-mat" is enlisted to track down her missing friend Q--the rogue AI who repeatedly saved Clair's life. Q is the key to fixing the system, but she isn't responding to calls for help, and even if she did . . . can she be trusted?

Targeted by dupes, abandoned by her friends, caught in a web of lies that strike at the very essence of who she is, Clair finds powerful allies in RADICAL, secretive activists who are the polar opposite of anti-d-mat group WHOLE. However, if she helps them find Q, will she be inadvertently trapping her friend in a life of servitude--or worse, sending her to an early death by erasure? Caught between pro- and anti-d-mat philosophies, in a world on the brink of all-out war, Clair must decide where she stands--and who she stands with, at the end.
