The story basically revolves around 3 characters Nelson, Ryder and Katie...... none of which are fleshed out enough to really even understand at all beyond what you expect them to be given the narrative. Ryder comes the closest to being a character you can finally sort of climb into his head space, but the events and story are so implausible and/or nonsensical as to undercut any disposition you might have to suspend disbelief and connect with him.
Quite frankly, while there were a few somewhat interesting, redeeming passages in the book that kept if from being 1 star material, I really didn't find much in this book to enjoy and would recommend that if you enjoy quality Sci-Fi, avoid it. While it's very short and wouldn't take more than a few readings to get through, it's not worth your time.
In this context move a scientist, Katie, and one of these saphers, Ryder. Grown up together, but separated by their very nature, they are to make an amazing discovery, which could save mankind. Meanwhile various forces move in an attempt to stop them.
The rhythm is that of a thriller, especially towards the end, but there is the feminine touch in the development of the characters and in particular their emotional aspect, that May explores in the best way, forcing the reader to identify with them. Personally I loved the character of Ryder, with his impulsive nature. It was intriguing to see how the author has managed to make the idea of this character forced to live as a recluse in a science centre, in a situation far from any today's reality and for this reason able to raise even more my curiosity.
I also liked the way she invented a near future, which could be quite possible, without exceeding the imaginative part.
A really good book that may appeal not only to lovers of techno/sci-fi thriller, but in general the reader who loves character-centric stories, so pretty much everyone.
Rita Carla Francesca Monticelli, author of Red Desert - Point of No Return
Yes, that intro is a bit over the top, but this is exactly the type of science fiction I like to read: something set in the near future, with a plot that actually seems halfway plausible. Throw in an energetic writing style along with well-described characters and crisp dialogue and I can't help but give this imaginative novel five stars. I really enjoyed the story and was anxious to see how it turned out. Nothing about this book disappointed me, but readers who require total realism probably would not rate it as highly as I did.
As a side note, I also want to add how much I appreciate the fact that this book is almost flawlessly edited. From the author's afterword I am guessing it's self published, and that makes me appreciate the attention to editing and proofreading all the more. I love and wholeheartedly support the world of self publishing, but I've run into far too many self-published books whose authors have skimped on this important step; it's very refreshing to find one who didn't.
