"This sci-fi novel is a page turner: The year is 2081 and people are living experiences, hearing thoughts and seeing sights through the eyes of others ...
While the novel is of the sci-fi genre, you need not be a geek to enjoy it. Hanberg doesn't overload the reader with science fiction mumbo jumbo, and as a matter of fact, the future laid out seems a perfectly logical one.
... The end leaves you hungry for the next installment." -- Jackie Casella, Weekly Volcano

Someone with even more advanced technology has mounted a secret attack on the Lattice. And it almost succeeds. This fast-paced story grabs you from the beginning. Not all is as it seems from the first surprising twist to the last. But the chief battle is for the mind and heart of the Lattice's prime defender and the only one with the tactical skill tio destroy it.
This book is science fiction at its best, thought-provoking and just plain fun. It has its share of technology, but the story is about people--real, likable people who must make life and death decisions. A great read!
The world is linked together by The Lattice. Byron Shaw is one of the people that work to protect it. He can't imagine living without it. It allows him to go anywhere, even into the past, and live a life that doesn't belong to him.
In the real world, he is married to Ellie, a nurse who works with people addicted to The Lattice. It seems that real life pales in comparison to what can be done in The Lattice.
Byron is kidnapped by a group that wants to bring down The Lattice. Even the inventor of it believes it has done more harm than good. Of course, there's also the inequity of the rich having access to the technology, while it is only dangled in front of the poor to make them feel even worse about their lives.
The group leads two raids on The Lattice and its backup, using technology that is brilliant in its conception. The action is intense and the suspense unrelenting.
The characters in the book are very well-defined and thought out. I felt for both the people who wanted to destroy The Lattice and those who were there to protect it. The people in the book are very intelligent. It is interesting listening to them discuss this technology and the impact it has had on humans. Byron is the main character and he undergoes a metamorphosis in the book. Readers will really care about him, his wife, and his friends.
I absolutely loved this book, and I am going to pre-order the sequel right now. Very highly recommended.
