Publishers Description: Adam gave up everything for a new chance at life. Now with a cutting-edge digital mind, he is smarter, faster, better than a normal teen. Except Adam is anything but invincible. He’s indebted to the government program that gave him this ability—and freedom comes at a price.
Review: I had mixed feelings about this novel. The upside was an interesting story line with characters developing tech while residing in constructs of their own design. The downside was the love triangle(s), teen angst and CRASH! BOOM! BANG! fight scenes that went overly long. Throughout this hormonal menagerie no one mentions computer circuit susceptibility to EMP strikes, nor are they utilized in weaponry. I had expected something closer to Asimov’s world but this pales in comparison. However, a good TV series this would make.
