Alina Leonova makes us question reality in her exciting psychological thriller Entanglement! As Cay flees from his home, he begins to question the nature of his reality and the corruption that has taken hold of it. Running across Limea, the two’s fates are suddenly intertwined as they attempt to answer the question, are they in a simulation? Leonova instantly creates an exciting dystopian read with a great blend of romance and really likeable characters! These are very strong points, but it’s th ...more

Alina Leonova in her cyberpunk story -  'Entanglement' - takes us to an altogether different world through an enjoyable storyline by infusing fascinating imaginations:- A person getting the exact copy of the brain with feelings and memories of the other person; editable DNA to keep the body immortally healthy via most modern brain implants that replicate themselves; suits of the person due to which a camera sees him as an inanimate object; an unimaginably powerful, yet extremely compact power so ...more

This is an intense read. Not just in subject matter, worlds, and environments but also in characters. The reader is dropped into Cay’s world, which is in the process of being torn apart. Whether this is because of Cay or not is the first of many roads the reader must take to follow the story.

Technically this is a very good story. It is a weave of three plot lines, and while the author does a good job at leading the reader through, there were times that I had to stop and think it through to get

Being snowed and iced in these past few days has me reading just about anything and everything.. So I was a little leery on this one... Glad I took the chance to read it. This book will have you thinking.. what if's. It's not overdone with action or adventures but it has enough to keep you interested. ...more

Entanglement: A Dystopian Sci-Fi Thriller is an excellent book that everyone should read. The ideas of the book are something that the world needs right now and it is presented in a way that expands the reader's perspective. It shows us what could be, both good and bad, and gives us something to hope for and something to fear. Leonova does a good job of leading the reader into the world and slowly expanding it until they can see more than they thought possible.

The characters are likable, and th

In a world of advanced technology where the people are imbedded with implants to obtain information and can experience realistic virtual reality simulations, Entanglement primarily follows a man called Cay, who, as he runs from a corrupt society, is questioning the reality of everything around him, and a woman called Vietra who lives and works under the control of a man who calls himself ‘the master.’

This really is a complex phycological analysis of the workings of the brain and humanity. Much l

In a world threatened by an inexplicable plague that has turned plants murderous, technology has rapidly developed in the hopes of delaying the inevitable. Simulations are a popular form of entertainment and the perfect excuse to escape to an alternative reality, but the lines between the virtual and the real can get easily blurred… Entanglement follows the story of Cay and Limea in their quest for answers. Will their special bond be enough to reunite them? Is there hope in a world that strives ...more

"Entanglement" by Alina Leonova transports the readers into a dystopian reality, where life of humans had changed dramatically. People don't walk on the ground, but live closer to the skies, forced to move higher and higher in order to survive.

I don't read or watch thrillers. I'm more into thoughts that a book or a movie evokes in me. But I loved that this book is fast-paced and packed with events that kept the story moving forward all the time until the very end.

I especially liked the character

This is one of the books that shows reality from an interesting angle.

It starts as a dystopia. 3 characters live in a predictable future with developed technologies and the same corrupted society. Like many l people, a young talented engineer Cay dreams of a change and putting an end to the endless imbalance between poor and rich. Of course, it's not that easy as he is just one human against people with power.

Entanglement goes further than standard plot. It lets the reader glance under the curta

Wow, what a unique experience! This novel has a way of keeping you guessing all throughout, which I always find is hard to do. Every time I thought I knew where it was going, I got shimmied down a new corridor. On top of it's mystery and suspense, this novel is full of deep, complex characters, fascinating technology, and immersive world building. The author's passion definitely shows in the depth of soul within the story. I highly recommend this title for any sci-fi or post-apocalyptic fans! ...more

If you're a fan of science fiction, you'll be in for a treat with Entanglement! I loved the world the author constructed - there were a lot of original ideas and plot twists in there that both surprised me and really made me think which was great. I didn't see the ending coming at all and it left me wanting more! I really hope there will be a sequel :) Definitely check this out - it will hook you right away! ...more

First off, I do not read dystopian, sci-fi books, but this one captivated me. The thoughts about human nature and our ability to change and adjust to any circumstances were thought-provoking.
JL Emerson

This book could have been so much better. It has a fascinating premise. It's fairly well written. It's also heavy handed & preachy. I understand that the author may be passionate about the subject of the environment. But I don't like being ever so gently bludgeoned about the head & shoulders about it. Don't turn my entertainment into an object lesson. 'Nuff said.
S.U. Ramesh
Entanglement, a dystopic science fiction, by Alina Leonova is well written and has its moments, but the story does not pack enough punch to grab and sustain the reader’s attention.

Some random facts: I was born in Belarus and fought the regime there (the same bloody dictator since 1994) but lost hope and moved to Poland. One of the two best weddings I've been to was in prison (it's Belarus, baby). There was a lot of partying and a couple of life-changing experiences in Poland, one of which made me finally start taking writing seriously even though I've
