Without a doubt, the worst Shadowrun novel I've ever read. The characters were wooden and uninteresting, which also applied to the setting and plot. I literally had to force myself to finish the book. I had high hopes for the new setting, but so far it's not living up to the standards set by Russell Zimmerman and Patrick Goodman with their shorter fiction pieces (both of which I Highly recommend).
On top of the rather lackluster publications in the gaming line, I am considering abandoning the Sixth World once and for all.
