About the Author
A word from the author:I like stories because they engage the imagination. Someone once said to me “the world of the imagination is the sandpit of the soul”. Here you can experience anything you choose... live out any fantasy, fulfil every wish, every desire... anything is possible. I see my stories as suggested paths through these worlds of possibility. I hope you enjoy them. Constructive feedback is always welcome.

Sam was such an endearing character, with a back story of tragedy and loss, it was hard not to love her. The enigmatic Dr Henderson was delightfully complex, with only small parts of her character on show at any given moment, leaving you to piece together the woman that is. The supporting cast are all well developed, you have a sense of who everyone in this story is.
The setting is realistic (and upon further investigation, a real place!). There is a sense that this is a future not too far from our present, one where the Government has ultimate control and the needs of the people come second. Where human testing has been taken to new heights (not all of them good) and turning people into weapons is on the agenda. It feels as though a world not too far from our own has lost it's way.
The romance that is interwoven into this story is developed at a steady rate. There is a sense that Skyborne knows how to give you a little, allowing for a powerful climax.
I would recommend this book to anyone with an eye for a great near future, sci-fi-esque story.
It is so refreshing to have strong sexy intelligent female characters who don’t conform to the usual girly stereotypes found in so much popular literature. I enjoyed Sam’s humour. Jesse is a very loveable, atypical male character, who provides light relief from the darkness of the situation Sam finds herself in.
I like the whole premise of the story too – very cool.
Similarly to Sam Skyborne’s other novel Risk (which I highly recommend for a gripping, sexy read) the eroticism and romance are interwoven into a much bigger story – so that you can enjoy both. I love the closing chapters with their promise of much more to come. I can’t wait!
Again the erotic scenes are so well written, building tension and giving you a big thrill.
Great to see a female character taking centre stage.
I definitely recommend it and look forward to the next instalment.
