I thought this was a blast. Throw together a gigantic alien artifact that gives people visions of the future, some alien reptiles with a strange religion built around this artifact, a couple of different kinds of shapeshifting alien killing machines, a large dollop of time paradox and just a hint of alien intervention, and you've got Ghost Devices. Bucher-Jones does a particularly good job of misdirection, making you think you know what's going on, and then making you realize that you had it wrong, but not in a way that makes you feel like the author cheated.
The book does occasionally get a bit silly and a bit metatextual. Though silly and metatextual seem to be standard parts of the New Adventures by now.
