Fear of God is an interesting story that really could have really gone somewhere. The thought of a virtual heaven used to help cure a very religious, but twisted individual, sounded like a great concept.

I didn't get far in this book and refused to finish it because the protagonist, Jaguar Addams, is such a damn BITCH! I don't usually use that word in my reviews. In fact, I don't think I ever have. However, in this case I think it's warranted.

In this second installment of the series, Jaguar is still rehabilitating the prisoners on Planetoid Three with their fears. But this time, she needs to use the fears of the female cult leader of the Revelation Sect. To achieve that, Jaguar must use a simulation of Heaven to find the root of the leader's deepest fears. With a riveting story-line, compelling characters and a dark, unique world. The Fear of God is a great addition to the series. I felt that the Jaguar's character grew in this book ...more

I really enjoyed this book. A futuristic sci-fi that ties in psychic abilities with virual reality. It is good about showing the differences between those with inuition and those without, and how those without fear it.
