You have got to read this book! — Robin H.

“I bought the book at a Comicon. The title got me and then when I found out what the story was about, I knew I had to read it. Its almost like the writer had seen inside my imagination. I had trouble stopping reading. There was always something new happening, and just when I thought I had it figured out, there was an unexpected turn. Super story line, even if your not a sci fi fan. Would like to see more books from this author.”

Great book, highly recommended — Marlene G.

“This book is really good. I couldn’t put it down. Well written, good book to dive into this winter.”

Great read, excellent plot! — Christopher H.

Full disclosure, I am not a sci-fi fan. I am, however, a big fan of anything that is well written and has a compelling plot. This book fits the bill! I was very pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a simple, linear plot but there were interesting twists and turns along the way that kept me deeply engaged in the story. I also really enjoyed the character development. The characters were relatable, believable, and interesting. If you are interested in sci-fi, are looking for an entertaining book to read for pleasure, or just simply want to give a new author a try, I highly recommend this book!”
