Machinations was beautifully written, with a fun world (for the reader, not the characters!) and a very sympathetic protagonist. Not every writer can pull off an engaging first person present narrative, but Hayley Stone did it flawlessly--even seductively. I'm glad the sequel isn't listed because I'd have a hard time picking one over the other! I'm very much looking forward to the next installment in the series.
The characters were all very unique and deep. Loved the backstory of how the machines came to nearly wipe out the human race. Go Rhona!
Machinations is brilliantly conceived and engaging. I look forward to reading the next novel from this talented writer.
Machinations is a thoroughly modern, incredibly well written novel. I loved every word.
