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 terrorist 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.

A TwinMaker Novel, Crashland is book 2 in the series. Unfortunately, I did not read book one of the series, so I was a little lost in the beginning, but I soon caught on to the main storyline of the story. I must say that when a book reads at a slow pace for me, I usually stop, due to my reading schedule and start the next one in line. But a little voice told me to push forward and see what Q, Clair, and Jesse have to offer. They did not disappoint There are some touches of romance here in there, but nothing huge. This book is all about Science Fiction, actions and details. Stopping at the first few chapters would of made me miss out on the action.

On a mission to find Q, in a world that is nolonger the world she once knew, Clair is determined to overcome. With so many obstacles in the way there were moments in the story when I was a bit confused. There really is a lot to soak in. The highlight for me was the ending. Cliff hangers are always great when you know there is more to come. Overall, the writing of the novel does exhibit a well planned and thought out storyline. Fans of Sean Williams will truly enjoy this novel and look forward to book 3 in the series.
