Campbell Award finalist Malka Older's State Tectonics concludes The Centenal Cycle, the cyberpunk poltical thriller series that began with Infomocracy. The future of democracy must evolve or die. The last time Information held an election, a global network outage, two counts of sabotage by major world governments, and a devastating earthquake almost shook micro-democracy apart. Five years later, it's time to vote again, and the system that has ensured global peace for 25 years is more vulnerable than ever. Unknown enemies are attacking Information's network infrastructure. Spies, former superpowers, and revolutionaries sharpen their knives in the shadows. And Information's best agents question whether the data monopoly they've served all their lives is worth saving, or whether it's time to burn the world down and start anew.

Professional reviews

"Christine Marshall narrates the final volume of a near-future cyberpunk thriller that pulls many chilling ideas from the current geopolitical landscape. While the cast of characters is large, and the point of view switches frequently, there is never any confusion, thanks to Marshall's clear distinctions between main characters. Election day is nearing, and the future of "micro-democracy" is at stake. Sabotage runs rampant, and it's difficult to know whom to trust. Occasionally, the complexity of the plot threatens to overwhelm Marshall's smooth narrative flow, but that is a momentary distraction and does not take away from the overall merit of her performance. The story ends on a note of hope, perfectly captured by Marshall. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
