Elysium Fire is good Damned goodReynolds at his best is so much fun that reading him feels like it should be a guilty pleasure something to greedily gorge on in the shadowy recesses of one s home or from behind the camouflage of some worthy literary magazine on the train His work is no pulpy SF deep fried chocolate bar though no Aliens Lasers and Boobs tub of home brand icecream in front of the TV Elysium Fire is the SF euivalent of a hearty three course meal with a dessert of home made apple pie topped with fresh whipped cream satisfying well rounded but with enough of a sugar hit to fire you up It s pure pleasure but pleasure with solid writing sharp narrative and a powerful imaginationLike The Prefect before it Elysium Fire is a police story set in an awe inspiring future Reynold s Revelation Space universeThe Revelation Space universe a sometimes dark one but it s powerfully alluring and I can t help but wistfully imagine living there with nano tech films you can step through that coat you in a custom made space suit in a society founded on universal direct democracy where every citizen votes on every issue in real time via their brain implantsIn Elysium Fire We return to the Glitter Band the sparkling necklace of habitats and satellites that orbits the planet Yellowstone in the Epsilon Eridani system home to Chasm City the most advanced and successful human city in the galaxy If you ve read Chasm City Reynold s best novel and one of the best SF novels this century you ve been to Chasm City and seen it in ruins after a nano plague has swept through and devastated the place This time we see it as it once was a technological utopia in the middle of a golden ageJust like in The Prefect we are again following the operatives of Panoply the police force who ensure that the democracy of the Glitter Band is uncorrupted enforcers in a society with few rules and little fondness for government oversight Tom Dreyfuss Thalia Ng Jane Aumonier and Sparver Bancal a Hyperpig a pig raised to human intelligence and bipedalism return from the first novel along with Aurora the homicidal AI from The Prefect that now exists in the distributed networks of the Glitter Band fighting a long slow war against the psychotic and eually distributed ClockmakerPeople all over the Glitter Band are dying their cerebral implants overloading and cooking their brains from the inside Simultaneously a demagogue arises Devon Garlin whipping up sentiment against panoply and encouraging habitats to secede from under police jurisdictionDesperate to discover what is causing the deaths and terrified of the panic that could ensue if the Glitter Band discovers a potential plague within itself Dreyfus and his colleagues race to find the source of the deaths finding themselves allying with old enemies and uestioning the foundations of their democratic utopiaOf course this results in a journey through the strange and wonderful realms of the Glitter Band and Yellowstone a journey that is tightly plotted and scintillatingly told with plenty of tension drama and wow moments Reynolds is on form with this one and it s a pacey fun read The ending doesn t uite match the uality of the rest of the book but it sets things up nicely for another story in the series and comes to a fairly satisfying resolutionIt s a rare book where I start feeling sad when I draw near the tale s end so unwilling am I to leave the world the writer has created Elysium Fire is one of those books and Reynolds is at the top of his storytelling game here I can t wait to see what he cooks up next45 glittering stars
