I don't normally read this type of book, being an avid fantasy fan, however the blurb was interesting so I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm so glad that I did!
Girl of flesh and metal is extremely well written, the characters are well fleshed out and there's more than enough action to keep you turning the pages.
Lena, after being in a horrific car accident has her left arm replaced with a cybernetic arm. Going home after physical therapy is when trouble starts in her life. Did she do it or is she just a patsy? Grab the book and read it to find out! You won't regret it I swear!
Alicia Ellis’s novel, Girl of Flesh and Metal wasn’t just a technically well-written book, it was a good read. I don’t believe in reviewers giving a detailed synopsis of the book. I feel that is the job of the author to get people to read the book and it is the job of the reviewer to give an honest review. I do not like to give spoilers, so in a way, I cannot say all that I would like to about the futuristic world Ms. Ellis has created, except it is truly believable. As I said, this book was not only well-written, it was also well-edited, and well proofed, something you do not always find with Indie Authors. The story is fast-paced, though it did not need a lot of action to maintain interest. It was not difficult to suspend disbelief in this near-future world. The dialogue was credible and authentic. It was not stilted and was never forced or simply a foil of the plot. The characters were lifelike, many with quirks that increased their believability. They were complex, well rounded, and well thought out.
Alicia Ellis has put together a well written and interesting read the will not only interest her target Young Adult audience but also those older adults that enjoy a good science-fiction book. It is a tome driven by a strong female central character, with action and dialogue that pull the story together.
1) Teens who talk like teens and not how adults think teens talk
2) An interesting world / mystery to explore
3) Strong, well-written characters
1) There's no sequel
In all seriousness, I realize it might not be the story for everyone. I say read the blurb and if it intrigues you, I can almost guarantee you'll like the story. If you read the blurb and feel luke-warm about it, then this probably isn't the book for you.

Ok, so this book... man, this book!
Meshing human psyche and AI together is brilliantly done by Alicia. Struggles of accepting technology, especially when it’s brought to the level it is in this novel, was on par with most sci-fi, if not more so. The mystery and action was phenomenally written, and the character development was spot on.
I look forward to more from Ellis.
She just became a one-click author for me!
