Merissa (Archaeolibrarian)
Degree of Resistance is the first book in a new series by Nicola M. Cameron in the #Cyberpunk/#Science_Fiction genres. In this series, climate change is real. There is snow in the Sahara, places in India are only inhabitable for about 3 months out of 12, due to the searing heat in the summer and freezing in the winter. After The Warming happened, life was chaos, but some form of normality has been regained. However, it only takes one thing to knock everything off balance. This is what happens to ...more

I have been a Nicola Cameron fan for some time, and have always enjoyed her work. But I was blown away reading Degree of Resistance. A perfect mix of science fiction, romance, and the right amount of Cyberpunk--and did I mention the really hot romance? I felt connected with Evie right away and was cheering her on the entire time. Fans of cyborg romance and--like me--need to read this book! And did I mention the amazing romance?

I was blown away by this story!

This is my first time reading Nicola's work, and my first time in years reading science fiction with romantic elements. I binged on Octavia Butler a few years ago--even found her most rare books--until I was stuffed, then turned my voracious reader appetite to romantic comedy, lol.

This story has androids, cyborgs, an evil corporation, government cover-ups and enough twisty-turny goodness to keep you reading straight through t

This near-future dystopia surprised me for how lovable it is. The heartwarming story of a woman a long-lost love, it's full of fantastic worldbuilding. Like engineers being upper class, just under the Investors. (Not that I'm biased.) Like the main character being a mechanical engineer and a maker. Like the charming application of cybernetic technologies in both civilian and military applications, withheld by the evil government to control its populace. I will be looking for more scifi romance b ...more

I had read another of Cameron's books and really liked it, so I gave this a spin since I'm a sci-fi fan. I liked so much about it - but wow, SO many content warnings for lack of consent, rape by coercion, sexual assault threats: (view spoiler) ...more
