A woman from the past. A cyborg with no future.
They have every reason to mistrust each other but one: survival.

When Nell Stafford passed out it was 2012. When she wakes up naked aboard a starship it's 2138, and she's surrounded by the Syn-En: synthetically-enhanced soldiers with a grudge against humans like her. She doesn't know where she is or what's happened, only that h

The first couple of chapters of this book are rough to get through. I think I picked this book up drowsily (very late at night, I'm an insomniac) scanning descriptions on Amazon..saw the word Cyborg and clicked Hell Yes. I have a thing for cyborgs you see..and AI.

Moving on- I then needed some motivation so I looked up the description again and it gave me steam. I hadn't reached the part where the mystery human woman appears! The first chapter or so were just boring to me so I kept on going beca

Okay, so I really liked this but the writing was... mildly bad, actually. There were barely any typos, so yay! good! The sentences were interesting and not "See Spot. See Spot run." There was an acceptable porportion of show versus tell. And sh*t was epic. Worldbuilding a tad bit lacking due to FAILURE OF LOGICAL PROGRESSION.

I guess the problem is that if I were to write a book, it would turn out like this (hopefully with my ideas being as epic and my characters as engaging). A lot of the time,

"There had to be a way out of the wormhole. Earth had shown the world pictures of the planet sent back from their probes. Sent the call for volunteers."

Admiral Beijing York (Bei) volunteered the Syn-Ens ( synthetically-enhanced soldiers) for a mission to reach Tera Dos, a newly discovered habitable planet on the other side of a wormhole.The humans of earth promised them freedom and equality in exchange for settling on Tera Dos. On he way there, he's surprised to find a non-enhanced woman, Nell S

Do you like action? Do you like science fiction? Do you like technology in your fiction works? Then you might want to check out Linda Andrews’ The Syn-En Solution.

The world has changed. Humans have become three distinct classes. Or is only one class human? The rest have robotic pieces. They have become more machine than human. Yet all are now faced with extinction if they cannot find a new place to populate. They have to make it out of the wormhole and establish a new life. Will they make it wit

This book is a fascinating mix of science fiction, fantasy, suspense, romance, and psychological implications. I loved the concept that there could be synthetic abilities or components linked to people to make them somehow better or stronger to survive and help them fight and protect people. What I also found sad but realistic is that those they helped turned against them in fear and relegated them to second class status. There is truth in the saying that we fear that which we do not understand. ...more

Cyborg of the future meets girl of his dreams? Maybe, but the journey to find out is a great one for the reader. Linda andrews has the ability to suck you into her world and drag you through the emotional briar patch before giving you a happy ending. I ended up with yet another late night because I just didn't want to leave the story unfinished - I had to know how it ended. So if you like a realistic romance mixed with science fiction action and suspicious aliens as well as a dash of psychologic ...more

This could have been a good book, but the author spent too many words on detailed action, and too few on overall plot and character development. As a result, a felt (1) that I never got a rest from the relentless panic and darkness, and (2) the ending came out of nowhere. Don't think I'll be reading more from this author.

I read this e-book months ago, but the story has stuck with me. The science was compelling and interesting, and matched up well with the romance and action. I felt like I was in the middle of a good science fiction movie. Definitely worth a re-read!

Really enjoyed this

This book grabbed me from the beginning. It's a great story, although it definitely could have benefited from better editing. Still, I liked it a lot. The sci-fi was interesting and the personal connections satisfying.

Surprisingly good SF novel. A bit too heavy on the romantic intrigue about 2/3 of the way in, but otherwise engaging.

Liked the story

Actually liked the concept and the writing was above average. The week spot was the science, or what the author thinks passes as a replacement for it.
