From official release/information:

August Seebeck is a Player in the Contest of Worlds. But nobody will tell him the rules. All the worlds (plural) a stage, as he jumps from universe to universe. And yet, he begins to doubt, are the Players really the Played?

K-Machines is the sequel to Godplayers which I thought showed a lot of potential but still had rough edges, most notably how no one ever explained to the hero what was going on. I assumed that would be rectified in the second book. It was not. Such confusion can be tolerated in the first book, the traditional set up volume in a typical trilogy. But the second book is supposed to provide the explanations, reveal the background, and answer the reader's questions. And K-Machines fails in that regard.
