Publishers Description: In the not-too-distant future, society is even more divided than it is now and the ‘new economy’ has left most of us behind. The world has been changed and people look to change themselves. Tattoos and piercings are visible examples while the use of drugs, DNA therapy and surgery to alter ourselves becomes common.

Review: This was a damn good read. The storyline was excellent. It starts as a rendition of some high school angst novella and quickly transforms into a high octane SciFi thriller with bold characterization and fast paced action. Wyatt is kind of a jock-douche that has the hots for Jessica and with the help of his buddy, Ford, he sets out to finally meet the girl of his dreams. Only she is more like a nightmare on acid and Ford becomes something other than what was commonly believed.

Like most of the supporting characters, the villain is drawn wonderfully, so much so that you come to like her. The characters developed with perfect timing along with the movement which is not an easy thing to do. Visualization of the scenes were a snap as the descriptions were concise enough to allow your imagination to fill it in. This kept the novel focused on the characters while building a surround from your own perspective. Very brilliant writing. 

“SO WHY YOU NO GIVE 5 STARS!!!”. Sadly there were just too many grammatical errors to ignore. So much so, that some of the sentences were fractured beyond repair. This really detracted from the intensity of the novel. Still, very high marks from this stingy reviewer. There is a new talent in town and his name is Blou… Blue, Blow?
