Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "'The war has turned us into light. Transforming us into light is the fastest way to travel from one front to another, and there are many fronts, now. I always wanted to be a hero. I always wanted to be on the side of light. It's funny how things work out.' Soldiers in the war against Mars, The Light Brigade, live brief lives, but the veterans are starting to be affected by changes in their bodies and minds, slipping in and out of time, or are they simply going mad? From Hugo award-winning author of The Stars Are Legion is a novel about interplanetary warriors who are losing their humanity."-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Hurley's latest (after Apocalypse Nyx, 2018) presents a future in which the government consists of six massive corporations and society is divided into corporate citizens and dispossessed, status-less ghouls. The Six and their private armies are waging a war against the colonists of Mars after the Martians reportedly made the entire population of São Paulo disappear in the Blink. To transport their soldiers in and out of combat, the Six use an experimental technology to break down their bodies into light and rematerialize them at their destination. Dietz, a soldier and former ghoul whose family and ex-girlfriend disappeared in the Blink, is eager to become part of the war effort. On her first drop, however, she starts experiencing events and history seemingly out of order, going on missions she's never heard of with soldiers she's never even met. Mixing a gritty and muscular writing style with an intricate and time-hopping plot with echoes of Philip K. Dick's Now Wait for Last Year, The Light Brigade is an enthralling portrait of a devastated near future. Highly recommended for not only sf fans but anyone interested in a thrilling and troubling vision of the future. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
