I gave the first book in this series Planesrunner five stars I wish I could do the same for this because it kept me hooked all the way through and left me bereft and disappointed when I turned the last page Frankly I loved it Yes the basic conceit and the plot are a bit too close to those of Iain M Banks s Transition for comfort down to the mantis like sexiness of the Chief Villainess but the concept of a chase across parallel timelines in different universes is big enough to accommodate both novels and a few dozen others as well McDonald s narrative and imaginative powers are strong enough that the comparison with Banks one of the best writers who ever took up science fiction does not shame himUnfortunately there is a great big hole in the plot which rather spoils the fun I won t reveal it here except to say it concerns electromagnetic pulses or EMPs It s not a scientific booboo It s a storytelling booboo a very bad one for which I hereby dock this otherwise wonderful book two starsAlso and sadly I found Mr McDonald whose intelligence I have heretofore admired talking utter rubbish here and there in this book At one point our juvenile hero Everett Singh discovers that you can t be afraid on your own because fear needs an audience Really I can t count the times I ve been afraid and alone Another time Everett says that guns don t make people feel powerful Try telling that to the sick losers who take their revenge against society through mass shootingsSo three stars despite a strong urge to give it five Can t wait for Everness 3

Be My Enemy Free read ¾ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Illions of parallel universes of the Panoply of All World and Everett and the crew of the airship Everness have taken a wild random Heisenberg Jump to a random parallel pla. originally posted at My Enemy is the second book in the Everness series written by Ian McDonald last week I read Planesrunner the first book and really left my with an urge to pick up it s seuel ASAP I got that young boyish delight after finishing Planesrunner all the cool high tech gadgets to which I was introduced to combined with the way it was shown and how it was written and above all the concept of multiversing It makes this series not only suited for the intended young adult audience but for adults as well The ending of Planesrunner somehow steered the book in a direction of how the story should be picked up but also left a lot of ground still to be explored Just in short a bit about what transpired in Planesrunner Everett s father was kidnapped by The Order The Order is a sinister organization who wants to get their hands on the Infundibulum which features as the map of all the parallel universes Now that it is in possession of Everett he is on the run avoiding on one hand The Order and on the other hand finding out in which universe his father is currently staying in order to get him back The whole story in Planesrunner was accompanied by a great and if you can say it realistic feel even though it is pure science fiction Ian McDonald set up the storyline smartly and broke down several crucial aspects of the storyline into bite size chunks that gave a good grip on the storyHonestly when I first read the introducing chapter of Be My Enemy I went back to Planesrunner I thought I recognized something but then later continuing it s was different but didn t make since well at that point anyway and then it all fell into place because There is not one you There are many yous This was one aspect I was eager to see explored the alters alternate version of the same characters I already had my guesses that Charlotte and Charles were one and the same but now yes this is a small spoiler Everett has one This is the Be My Enemy part Everett now another enemy looking just like him I have to admit that I did have a few reservations to start with the alter part it can be uite complicated when writing multiple universes and to top it off with a same set of characters therein with them being slightly different However this fear was totally uncalled for as Ian McDonald introduces only a few alter characters in a way neat manner Take for example the alter of Everett first I thought that it was the real one but there are those little tweaks in the character that make him different and the alter is really given it s own personality and feel in one way like a new character but in another way with the roots still in the original characters still uite similar And one aspect I was pleased about was that the alter Everett isn t just used to hunt down the real Everett but also used to infiltrate into the E10 world combined with how evil the alter Everett is gives this scary feeling Next to the new character via the alters there are uite a few recurrent characters as well For starters there is our main protagonist and hero Everett his character will inspire a lot of young kids to become just as adventurous and confident as him Though Everett s character doesn t go through a lot development he is still an amazing lead for this story and he doesn t lack any confidence in doing anything or voicing his opinions Another great addition in Planesrunner was Sen Sen now set herself apart even Her character is easily recognizable and uite uniue to say the least in a good way that is her whole attitude somehow full of adventure and action taken together with a motherly and caring approach especially towards Everett make her just great Whether there is some romancing going on from her side of the story remains to be seen it s hard to tell because at one moment she can be uite happy and open and on a different moment closed like a book But their relation does add a something special to the story I mentioned in the Planesrunner review that I had a hard time pinning down Sharkey with his biblical texts and didn t know he was in for good or bad but his character is a bit further explored and there are some nice dialogues between him and the other crew that let Sharkey come out of the gray area in which he was But still after this I do have some doubts he can say all he wants but given his background you just never knowAs for the bad guys of The Order They were shown in this sinister setting in the first book especially Charlotte but now their plans are making a turn to the darker side again Being able to still travel to other universes they employ a weapon to their task of one that will be Everett s deadliest enemy Though there were already uite a few heavy Science Fiction elements in the first book In creating the deadliest enemy for Everett even of Science Fiction is explored and its all pretty cool stuff This is a great interplay between the parallel worlds and how several parallel world are way advanced than the current Earth I liked the whole Madam Moon part and the armor in the end when I read about those blaster I though Iron Man and later Ian McDonald does mention it in his storyline it just comes to show for me at least and probably a lot that Ian McDonald knows how to write an exciting and engaging story With the actions that The Order is undertaking the story of Be My Enemy turns techno thriller which is further bolstered by the part I am going to mention belowNANOTECHNOLOGY YES there you have it sorry for this if it is to spoilery but I just have to mention it Talking about cool stuff I have some knowledge of nanotechnology and it has already been uite often used in technological thrillers this is the stuff that inspires on one part fear in me and on the other part a high coolness factor But how is this nanotechnology linked to the story In Planesrunner we learned there was one planet uarantined E1 because it has a horrifying secret However Everett has to face the parallel universe of E1 to retrieve one particular item Soon you learn what went wrong and how it went wrong and this is the part that inspires the fear I liked how Ian McDonald introduced us to the nanotechnology and how he uses it in his story creating a sentient being that comes to show in the encounter with the alter Everett it s nasty meaning the plotting of the events that surround it and how it possibly can be picked up later It s cool to read about that the nanobots were able to make whole new constructs like birds dogs and others even so far as being able to commune it just adds this whole new level to the story When there is this encounter on E1 between the real Everett and the nanobots they have to make haste and flee Ian McDonald managed to grasp and show the action in a tight and controlled way really creating that edge of your seat momentBe My Enemy had a lot to live up to after the magnificent start in Planesrunner and for me it has done it With giving the introduction to the multiversing in the first book it was now up to Ian McDonald to show what else was possible in the Everness series and take his story further he does it in a spectacular manner Highlighting in particular the alters alternate version of the same character living in the parallel universes and introducing the threat of nanotechnology that decimated the Earth of E1 Though they are heavy subjects they are all introduced along the way and don t feel as an information dump on the contrary they feel natural as they were meant to be This I think is owed to the way the story was set up and combined with the excellent writing style of Ian McDonald Be My Enemy introduced a lot of new threats to Everett with his alter and The Order and will make his journey through the parallel universe even that precarious In the end of Be My Enemy it seems that there is now an even bigger threat on the loose that could mean the end of all the Panoploy Everness is a series to watch out for it s turning into an excellent techno thriller it has a lot of action cool science fiction stuff it s a lot of fun to read and is one big unparalleled adventure
