I know it’s probably not fair to compare an author’s work with another literary or cinematic work, but a few pages into Peter Ryan’s sci-fi powerhouse Sync City, I’m thinking, “Wow, this reminds me so much of Blade Runner” – especially the hardboiled detective underpinnings with the characters and snappy dialogue. The fact that I love Blade Runner should give you a pretty good idea how much I enjoyed Sync City.
Ryan has penned an exciting, gripping novel about the future and time travel. I really like his premise behind the novel in that the Earth’s timelines are all askew which allows marauding groups from the past and the future are traveling through time, and in the words of the author, “f**king things up.” It is a brilliant idea which Ryan masterfully develops throughout the story.
Ryan’s got a winner here. Do yourself a favor and take a trip to Sync City. You won’t regret it.
