Backed by their military might and mutated Aeon soldiers, Propater forces continue to seek possession of our planet. They also seek to maintain possession of a body stuck in suspended animation - a body whose consciousness has just been downloaded into outlaw Sophia's sophisticated, cyber-enhanced system. Sophia lost her body years ago, with only her brain surviving the flesh-destroying plague that decimated the world. Will she risk her own existence for a chance to reunite Maya's body with his mind? Hiroki Endo delivers another deep, poignant character study, before sending readers into a brilliant, carnage-filled showdown between Propater mercenaries, a crime cartel, Colonel Khan's renegade crew, and a struggling, post-apocalyptic police force! To make matters worse, Elijah enlists the aid of an old friend and plans an ambush at a Gnosian airport. Desperate, young Elijah seeks a reunion of a different sort... and he'll kill anyone who stands in his way!

The length of Endo's postapocalyptic, military sf, gang-war epic demands going with its flow, not trying too hard to keep the characters' allegiances crystal clear. After the long fireworks display of volumes 3 and 4, Eden's fifth starts slow, with Andreas probing the consciousness of the cyborg Sophia, who looks pubescent but has been around many a block in her original, human incarnation. Andreas wants Sophia to help reunite the consciousness and body of the superintelligent Maya. When that's about to happen, the heat mounts to whiteness as four sets of combatants converge. More dazzlingly savage than ever. Ray Olson
