I enjoyed the beginning of the book when we are introduced to punky/goth Kora with her turquoise hair and nails and learn she is basically kept a slave working for a corporation that supplies these wealthy clients. When she is shipped off to a fellow scientist to "help" her with projects, the novel goes from a futuristic/dystopian feel to more of a gothic novel feel. The house is full of strange people with personal dynamics that got confusing from time to time.
I felt the middle of the book dragged a bit and I found myself not caring what happened to Kora, but then the action and drama picked up with an unexpected twist which kept my interest until the end. However, I felt the ending was a bit abrupt.
All in all, the novel was well written and definitely different from anything I've read. If you like dark gothic style novels and futuristic sci fi this is a good mix of both.

It was just ok. The premise was good but it felt scattered and a few times I wasn't sure what the point of the story was. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lisa Rains
4 stars here because the story dragged in places making me hope for a change of pace soon. Which would come & save the storyline. All in all, a good read but no page burner.Published 5 months ago by debi
