Another high action SF dystopia perfect for fans of Richard Morgan and Alfred Bester alike. The follow-up to the acclaimed Barricade, this is another short, sharp, and kinetic SF thriller. Kenstibec is a Ficial—a genetically engineered artificial life form; tough, skilled, hard to kill. Or at least he was. He's lost the nanotech that constantly repaired him. Life just got real. Just like it is for the few remaining humans in this blighted world—the Reals; locked in a fight over a ruined world with the Ficials they created to make Utopia. And now Kestibec must take a trip to the pinnicle of our failed civilization. The Steeple is a 1,000-story tower that looms over the wreckage of London. It is worshipped, feared, and haunted by attack droids and cannibals. And the location of a secret that just might save Kenstibec's life.The only way is up.

Jon Wallace's first novel was published to great acclaim and some controversy. Wallace once worked for the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and wrote SF short stories that were published in Interzone but he now writes full time.Review:
the action is tense, the violence is gruesome and the science-fiction is engaging. in other words, it's every bit as good as its predecessor * The Sun * Steeple has really left me wondering what chaos Kenstibec will bring to the third book and Jon Wallace's imagination has shown me that if the sky's the limit * Fantasy Book Review *
