A suitable sequel to "The Peripheral," with plenty of extra backstory and even more depth of mental triangulation of the "stub" branches of history. In addition, we get a fascinating exposition on the branches of sub-routines (and sub-personalities?) to an advanced AI. However, the character development in the sequel is less compelling, and the relentless and breakneck pacing of the plot seems cramped, as if the characters and by extension, the reader, has no agency in the plot at all.
