"An enticing read." Midwest Book Review
“The book has lots of good twists and an interesting futuristic society.” -- reader review
"The characters were well developed and the suspense kept me turning the pages!!" -- reader review
"As someone who generally isn't interested in science fiction, I liked this book because the people and their experiences were the focus rather than the science fiction...I enjoyed seeing the characters come into their own...I did not anticipate the ending - it was a great twist" -- reader review
