Críticas:

"The Flux" is the best kind of sequel: bigger, deeper, scarier, funner. The emotional journey it takes the reader on is just as thrilling as the jaw-dropping wonders of videogamemancy and bureaucramancy. With the 'Mancer series, Ferrett Steinmetz has achieved something rare in contemporary fantasy: a world that feels both truer and more magical than our own.
-- Ken Liu, winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards and author of the "The Grace of Kings"and" The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories."
I really, really liked the uniqueness of the world of magic Steinmetz has created with his novels. It s very well thought out, and structured.It was exciting to see how someone obsessed with video games would see the world, and its rules, through the use of mancy.I also enjoyed the addition of such human dynamics between all of the characters.Steinmetz has done a wonderful job of blending superb battles between the mancers and mundanes, with heart wrenching moments with Paul and his eight-year-old daughter Aliyah, while still walking the tightrope of creating a story about family, good vs evil, and trust.

I give"The Flux"a score of 9.5/10. This is a great novel that like with"Flex"I would strongly recommend to anyone who has any interest at all in Urban Fantasy as a genre, and even to people who ve never read the genre before and might be interested in giving it a go; the Mancer series would be a fantastic introduction for you. This book makes Ferrett Steinmetz a name to watch.

If you re looking for some truly original urban fantasy, particularly if you re a gamer, you"need"to try this series."The Flux"was good I read it twice.
Bookaneer
Explosively good fun.
The Speculative Herald
" The Flux"is a sequel that is superior to its original and the original was a"must-read." So go read this book, now.

" "Ferrett Steinmetz has created something crazy wonderful here. The magic is geektacularly awesome (Videogamemancy! Fight Clubmancy! You name it, it s a mancy.) "The Flux"is one of those rare books that s part of a series (book two), but is written to be a stand alone.
Geeky Library
A fun read with plenty of heart.
Relentless Reading
Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine is kick-ass, and Paul Tsabo is too.
Fat Robot
Steinmetz has done some great work here, and I look forward to seeing more from this still fairly new author.
Strange Currencies
The world Ferrett Steinmetz has created is wildly imaginative and his writing style is somewhat reminiscent of Richard Kadrey s"Butcher Bird"and"Sandman Slim"novels. Needless to say, both"Flex"and"The Flux"are wild rides which take the reader to places they ve never been before, and beyond.
Frank Michael Errington
The momentum it keeps up throughout it had me on my toes. I was actually crying during some scenes- a rarity if you know me, and a rather high award. I absolutely loved how this book finished off.Last but not least, I need to mention the cover. It s just gorgeous isn t it? I love that Valentine is on the cover! She looks totally badass.
Tsundoku Books
Some of the more unique and enjoyable urban fantasy I ve read as of late.
The Artolater
I think the Mancer series can easily be considered the best urban fantasy series that I m currently reading. It has everything that I love about this genre. A city whose importance can be felt within the plot and the character s love for it. A magic system that shines and fascinates. And characters that are crazy but loveable.
Challenging Reads
This one-of-a-kind series (which saw two installments released this year) is what might result if you put"Breaking Bad"and Reddit in a blender and hit frappe.
Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi Blog
I REALLY liked"The Flux.
" ""Mythology of Technology
Just as with"Flex, "I can only say good things about"The Flux." Storywise it is definitely one of the coolest things that I read in a long time. Ferrett Steinmetz shows a lot of creativity with the whole Mancer magic system that he has divised. Delving deeper into what is takes to be a Mancer, he doesn t shy away from showing the bad and the ugly as well.
The Book Plank
This series features some of the most intricate and unique concepts I ve ever seen.

Reseña del editor:

Love something enough, and your obsession will punch holes through the laws of physics. That devotion creates unique magics: videogamemancers. Origamimancers. Culinomancers.
But when ‘mancers battle, cities tremble...

ALIYAH TSABO-DAWSON: The world’s most dangerous eight-year-old girl. Burned by a terrorist’s magic, gifted strange powers beyond measure. She’s furious that she has to hide her abilities from her friends, her teachers, even her mother – and her temper tantrums can kill.

PAUL TSABO: Bureaucromancer. Magical drug-dealer. Desperate father. He’s gone toe-to-toe with the government’s conscription squads of brain-burned Unimancers, and he’ll lie to anyone to keep Aliyah out of their hands – whether Aliyah likes it or not.

THE KING OF NEW YORK: The mysterious power player hell-bent on capturing the two of them. A man packing a private army of illegal ‘mancers.

Paul’s family is the key to keep the King’s crumbling empire afloat. But offering them paradise is the catalyst that inflames Aliyah’s deadly rebellious streak...
