The Red Valley Republic is fighting a losing battle against the Line. The fate of the world depends upon the General. He has learned an important secret from the First Folk. A secret. A weapon. The ultimate weapon. Should the General succeed, the war will be over but if he fails the Republic (and all hope) will die with him.

Unfortunately, just as the General is about to realize his finest hour, the Line makes a surprise attack. Although the General is not killed, the secret is locked inside his head. Completely mad, the General's only words are Ramblings about old fairy tales.
Psychologist Liv Alverhuysen is given the General as a charge. Originally from the civilized East, the good doctor has no clue what she's signed up for. Everyone wants what's inside the General's head for themselves. While in the hospital, an ancient spirit protects the General from the Line. However, an Agent of the Gun kidnaps both the General and the Doctor. His master also wants the secret.

The Half-Made World is an action packed thrill of a ride. Smart, thought provoking, and well written. The very first scene with the General, intrigued me. By the time we meet Creedmoor, the agent of the gun, I was fully immersed.
