Please note that this is a futuristic novel with obvious "Face Off" (the movie) elements.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, as Anah Crow writes well, and portrays emotion even better.

However, I had some very serious misgivings about this specific Anah Crow book.

First of all, the King's character is not drawn well enough in the beginning (before he dies) for us to really believe Matxin did well in his role. Of course, I also had to suspend lots of disbelief in order to enjoy reading after this point

I appreciate the effort the author put into creating a sci-fi world. I hate it when they just throw in a space ship and a space station and call it a day, so this was nice.

I almost stopped reading during the prologue. I can't remember the last time I found a romantic sex scene so out of place - it was sudden and underprepared imo, lacked insight into the characters and could be described as the equivalent of bad video porn.

SLIGHT SPOILER even though the revela

Sci-fi with lots of twists and turns. I was never quite sure what was going to happen in the end. I cried at one part because I wasn't sure...lol.

I really enjoyed this.
