really liked it
bookshelves: 2011
Read from September 28 to 30, 2011

This book has everything! It is a cross between the Matrix, Conspiracy Theory, and The Bourne series. Very action packed and I have to admit very confusing at times, but in the end all that confusion is well worth it.

What happens in this book is a very intense plot involving several different characters and when you read it, it is like watching a ball of yarn unwind. There are so many secrets that I lost count of how many times I thought I knew something because it turned out to be wrong. I have no idea who to trust and normally this is a bad thing but I love all the mystery involved in this unique story.

Julie Cross does a wonderful job of keeping the reader on their toes and can definitely write an exciting tale. I also appreciate that when Jackson would time jump she would start a new chapter. This helped keep all the confusion to a minimum. I am eagerly waiting for the next installment to see what becomes of every character and if Jackson can save the future from destitute.

This book has already been optioned for a movie and I think it will translate to the theater wonderfully.
