Going Under, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Book three of the Quantum Gravity Series sees Lila Black back from her adventures in Demonia and struggling to cope with the even stranger world of Faerie. And these Faeries couldn't be less like Tinkerbell. These Faeries are capricious, unknowable and dangerous. And they will be Lila's toughest test yet. Lila may have reached some sort of peace over the fate of her parents, she may have built some bridges with her sister but when you're half cyborg, when you contain enough high-tech weaponry to win a small war, when you don't know your heart, still love an elf and don't trust your bosses you can be capricious unknowable and quiter dangerous enough yourself. This is a fast moving SF fantasy full of thrills and adventures but informed with a ready wit and prepared to touch on serious themes of identity, reality and sexual politics.

Review by

Every time Lila Black seems to be getting even what could be described as a vague grasp on what's going on in her world something else blows up in her face, sometimes very literally.It would have been easy for Lila to turn into a Mary Sue, after all she is a cyborg with strange parts that are slowly but surely changing her. No-one is truly sure about how her armour works, least of all her and it seems to be almost only limited by her imagination. The story opens in Demonia, back to Otopia and then to Faery, Lila will lose and gain, will win and will strive to win but during it all she will rely on her friends and her skills.Every time I think I understand where Justina Robson is going with the story she throws something else into the mix or another road block I wasn't expecting. This appeals to the Shadowrun / cyberpunk / urban fantasy lover that I am, often simultaneously.
