Tales of Cinnamon City is a Science fiction and fantasy series set in the rich, deep world of Megarothia. Information Cloud is the first novel in the series, mixing elements of military science fiction, military fantasy, and hi-tech action.
On a world called Megarothia, a world governed by powerful war lords, the people grow restless beneath the Dome Shield, safe from the ravaged world outside.
Rachel works for Central Command, maintaining law and order on the streets when she's not hunting down Kamari agents. The insurgents have been getting ever more bold in recent months, launching increasingly violent attacks against the city and its outlying stations. The word on the street say things are getting out of hand.
But there's something strange about Rachel. Rumours have been spreading throughout the towers. She's stronger than she ought to be. Few can match her lightning reactions.
When Commander Nick Chambers receives a tip off about a possible Kamari base nearby, Rachel doesn't hesitate to join his task force, but not everything goes as planned.
A dark power is rising. The lords aren't ready to release their grip on the land. Rachel finds herself caught in an ever more desperate struggle as the factions of Cinnamon City start to unwind.

What's great book! I do not normally enjoy post apocalyptic stories, but I really could not class this as one. It was more of a futuristic view of the future. Technology, food, security for The people and otherwise pretty normal lives for most citizens, except those of the security forces. The book started with a run, then slowed briefly to introduce important new characters and then blitzed away again. The characters were well developed and either like-able or extremely hateful, which made for an exciting read, rooting for your favourites. The book was well written and flowed seamlessly from one chapter to the next, making it impossible to put down at any point. The technology created in the book for the battles was mind boggling and frightening. The human is capable of terrible cruelties towards what they consider lesser beings. I am really looking forward to the next book. Really hope I don't have to wait too long. I really need to know what happens next!!!

I'm always on the lookout for good sci-fi books, and I'm often disappointed by the droves of poor sci-fi out there. Which is why I was delighted to discover Information Cloud. It's an amazing page-turner which brings believable people and storyline to a fantastic science fiction universe (which is my definition of good science fiction).
If you're a fan of sci-fi (or war novels) I would highly recommend this book. I eagerly look forward to the next one.

A good read.
Interesting story. Some things though are hard to swallow. People can only take so much before die.
West depicts and odd command structure for the heroine’s security force: troopers, majors, commandeers and a general or admiral. The chronology of his lead character is off. He seems to have little knowledge of combat. The action is episodic as he skips around featureing several chadracters. He doesn’t improve in the sequels.
