~ Synopsis ~

Henry Malone’s childhood was shattered by the unexplained suicide of his father. Now a teenager, his days are spent studying to become a Neural Implant Technician for Planetary Link Corporation, helping them maintain an iron grip over his walled country and every iota of knowledge contained within—but he leads a double life. Henry’s nights are spent helping his mother wage a cyber war against them in her quest to find the truth behind his father’s death.

He’s managed to keep his two lives separate, a delicate balance that’s endangered after he repairs the neural implant of a stranger. He finds she’s in possession of illegal memories from the outside world, unauthorized knowledge of his father, and a message: speak to me later and tell no one. Henry has a choice to make—ignore the message and maintain his double-life, or answer and risk everything to uncover secrets Planetary Link would kill to keep buried.



~ Review by Angela ~

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

I love a good dystopian, or young adult, or sci-fi book. This one was all three combined into one and it was a wild ride. I thought that the premise was unique but it also reminded me of other books that I have read. There was a lot of suspense and intrigue in this book and I couldn’t guess what was going to happen, which was awesome. The author was able to keep my attention and keep me glued to the pages. I read the book in 2 days, which for me is pretty quick. And, the second I got done reading it, I went and purchased the 2nd one (right after I stalked the author on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads).

I don’t want the fact that this is a young adult novel to turn anyone off. I think that it is a book that anyone any age could enjoy, but would say ages 13 and up to be safe. There is violence and some strong language but nothing worse than what is on network television. I love the female secondary character, Riya, in this story. She is a kick-ass chick who will not stand for anyone’s crap. She is definitely someone that is good for Henry to be around and to teach him some things. I like that there isn’t an “instant” connection between these two and there hasn’t been any mention of any love or googly eyes at each other, aside from some comments about her taking a shower. It’s nice to be able to read a book with a female and a male character and not have anything going on between them. It doesn’t always happen in real life and the situations they are in and the stress that they are under it doesn’t make sense for it to happen. So thank you M. Stephen Stewart for that. I for one appreciate it. I give this story 5 books.

  1. This sounds like a fun and suspenseful read. I love that the romance isn’t the whole point of the story. Glad you liked it! 🙂
