Review: THE ACTUATOR (BOOK 1): FRACTURED EARTH by JAMES WYMORE
If you could invent or acquire a device that would transmute a given area to match your favorite gene--be it fantasy, mystery, horror, science fiction, Western, steampunk, cyberpunk, romance--would you use it? Would you try? Or would you be afraid of potential changes?
In this first entry in the super-fantastic ACTUATOR series, the U.S. military has latched onto an invention by an amateur designer which does exactly that--alters reality--and installs it on a base in the very remote Utah wilderness, importing "Machine Monks" to create new realities, and two "Key Hunters" to locate the Monk-designed Key to halt each actuation. Everything is smooth--until it's tried with 20 Machine Monks: then EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE in the world changes, in segments of differing realities.
I am head over heels in love with this book: I could reread it every single day.
