I really liked the premise but the execution did not work. There were too many ideas going on which weren't very well thought out. Everything sort of sounded cool and interesting but were so vague that my suspension of disbelief wouldn't stay suspended.

On top of that - while the hero and heroine were interesting, they began to annoy me. Kovner's zen know-it-all attitude and smiles in spite of bad news was annoying. Talia going from a gung-ho, confident young thing, to realizing she doesn't know

In the future our reality is more plugged into the virtual than the real. Talia is the chosen sucessor to her grandmother - the CEO of FortuneCorp, one of the six worldwide (universe-wide?) conglomerates. Though, her grandmother has "descended" a term used for someone who cheats death by having their consciousness uploaded to the net.

All and all a good book and had a wonderful romance story woven in.

This book was fairly entertaining once I got into the story - I just didn't like the ending.
