This book kept me spellbound from the beginning. The setting in the U.S. in 2045. It all began with a giving up of some freedoms in the name of security, and quickly evolved into a society dominated by fear, repression, tyranny, violence in the name of "preserving" what we have. Harper Adams, the central character, is one of the "monitors", due to her specialized ability to perceive the thoughts and feelings of others. Each citizen has a microchip embedded in their neck, so that everything they say is monitored by a huge computer system. Any word that is red-listed (such as "option" or "liberty" or "democracy" can result in instant death.
The plot is well paced and ties together; there might have been more character development, but what is there is good. I hope to read more by this author.
