Pretty good -- darker than the first one.

The author's Crib Sheet: Iron Sunrise article is worth reading (after the book) -- it explains why the series stopped at this point, as he'd painted himself into a corner...

Charles Stross, "Singularity Sky"

Not as mad as Ken McLeod or as straight-faced as Alastair Reynolds. Also not quite as polished as his later stuff -- but still an entertaining read.
