(From the publisher):
A giant has brought war to England's heartland.
He stalks across the fields and towns to the west of London. The British army has tried to destroy him but each time he has beaten them. When they bring in air support and deploy heavy weapons he simply melts away only to form again somewhere else and deliver another devastating blow.
He is called Pantegral. And he is you and me.
Pantegral is a New Model Army. A giant whose thoughts flow through countless wireless connections, whose intelligence comes from the internet and real-time camera updates, whose mind is made up of thousands of minds, each deciding what Pantegral will choose to do.
And Pantegral has chosen the joy of the fight. His fury is truly democratic.
Adam Robert's stunning new novel is a savage satire on our capacity for war and a celebration of our need for love. It confirms his status as one of the most exciting voices writing today.
