Writing a review for this book is going to be hard. After reading about the author, I think its because our brains just work differently. Granted, I have a doctoral degree... but once a book starts talking quantum theory, physics and advanced math, my brain starts tuning everything out. But I have to respect the author's intelligence and how he writes what he knows into the books. :)

That being said, I love the world Anthony Francis has created in Atlanta. And I adore the skindancing. It is something utterly unique and nothing like I have read before. However, can a girl get some romance??? For goodness sakes, I love books that work my brain but throwing some fluff in there help keeps me entertained! Things between Dakota and Calaphase had such great promise... but they didn't even get off the ground! I almost stopped reading at that point, so this must be rectified in future books. (Maybe with a certain firedancer?) I also thought sometimes there was a little too much action, or just too many things happening in quick succession. It was hard to digest it all. But I am interested enough to keep reading future books in the series, and I hope Mr. Anthony continues to find time to write them.
