S.H.A.Y. makes plans to take Mom away so that she cannot be destroyed. So she takes Mom and A.M.I.E. hoping to reach Miami where the law there will keep Mom safe from the scientists but alas they do not reach the boarders of Miami. Instead they land on an island where they run into a boy E.R.I.C. who was also created by the scientists like S.H.A.Y.
A.M.I.E. warns S.H.A.Y. that she can’t trust E.R.I.C. and to run but S.H.A.Y. doesn’t believe her so A.M.I.E. sets off alarms in her head which leaves her no choice but to run. So she runs but then later realizes she has lost Mom and must go back no matter what A.M.I.E. says to get Mom back so she can save her.
S.H.A.Y. wants to believe A.M.I.E. when she tells her not to trust E.R.I.C. but she just can’t seem too especially when he is so nice to her and has done nothing but help her since she landed on the island. He flirts with her and when he touches her it feels like electricity flowing through her. So what is a girl to do? Can she trust E.R.I.C. long enough to help her save Mom? Can she trust him at all? Will he betray her in the end? Or will he save her? I need the next book E.R.I.C. now!
I can’t wait for the next book to find out more about S.H.A.Y., Mom, A.M.I.E., E.R.I.C. and all the other S.H.A.Y.s. Where will S.H.A.Y. and E.R.I.C. take us next? What do the scientists have in store for S.H.A.Y. and E.R.I.C.? I would like to recommend S.H.A.Y. to anyone one who loves a good book and his looking for short read to give S.H.A.Y. a try.
S.H.A.Y. is about a humanoid trapped in a science lab and approaching her termination date. With the help of her artificial mother (Aimee), Shay escapes only to run into her E.R.IC. Desperate to keep her basically adoptive mother alive, Darla, Shay does whatever she can to set her free.
Shay is kind and compassionate, very driven and courageous. As far as characters go, I think she’s my favorite in S.H.A.Y. I also really enjoyed her Aimee, which is her artificial mother. Aimee is an AI, but she appears to have emotions like a human. She cares of Shay and does what she can to help her escape the science labs. When Shay meets Eric I honestly wasn’t so sure about him at first. Shay had crash landed from her escape from the facility and Eric ends up finding her. Eric is a bit insensitive and had no problem raking his eyes from head to toe over Shay (to the point that it kind of bothered me because of the manner in which he did it). I also didn’t like his nickname for her. He called her cream-puff. Another insensitive tally against him. But towards the end of the novella Eric grew on me somewhat. I think he has the potential to be better than what he first appeared to be. I guess I will have to read more in order to find out!
The novella was a little on the short side (I would have preferred it to be a few chapters longer), but it did leave me hanging and wanting more. I think S.H.A.Y. is intriguing and definitely worth checking it out. I think Christina has created a very intriguing and alluring world and I look forward to reading future reads by her.
