it was amazing

Oh wow, wow, wow. I did not expect ANY of that to happen!

I loved the format! Reading a story through chat logs, AI core readings, emails, and some WONDERFUL visuals allowed you to do part of the puzzling together by yourself, but still managed to hide the biggest plot twists until the very end. The story was captivating and I loved both main characters, Kady and Ezra, as well as most of the side characters (AIDAN can get some love too, but I found him more creepy than anything else). The way everything futuristic was handled was extremely enjoyable: it wasn't shoved in your face or tirelessly explained, it just was. Exactly like we handle technology right now. Excellently written!

I can't do anything but recommend this to everyone, fans of SF or not. I think everyone can find enjoyment in this story.

Now run.
