Eva is happy to get her life back to normal, or as normal as it can for a woman who had half her brain replaced by a computer implant of her own making. Then Ernie, the ex who put a hole in her skull, shows up for dinner with her parents.

Writer, reader, now an avid listener, why hadn't I discovered this before!
I got this book in exchange for an honest opinion, and it didn't disappoint. It's not my usual kind of sci if, but it is Cyberpunk and very interesting. The world building and character depth is great.
The technology in here was really well thought out. I enjoyed the explanations and the journey that happens for the MC.
Earnie, what a horrid, horrid man. Had my skin crawling. There were so many nice twists and turns within this story that it kept me guessing. I really could identify with Eva. She's an amazing character.
I enjoyed the narration, although I have to admit it seemed to be read a little on the slow side. I wasn't sure if it was just me, but it's obviously the natural cadence of the narrator who is actually the author too. Wow, wish I could narrate my own work, extra kudos for trying. The voice is nice to listen to and the production is good. I did want the ending to be a little more satisfying, but I'm thinking there might be more from this world, so the odd question I can cope with not getting a resolution.
In all this is a great story and narration, well worth checking out. And I'll be looking for more stories from Mariah :)
A great cyber-thriller some of the personal and societal impacts of the implants, how implants could help people with serious injuries and how they grow to cope with it - and the drama of one's past coming back to haunt them. Good narration.
"Human and Cyberpunk Themes"
The story and the Narrator were both compelling.
It deals with Cyberpunk themes, and Eva move to self empowerment through technology and people. It is not my usual read, but is was very enjoyable.
"Awesomeness of awesome"
This is one of my favorite stories ever. It's enthralling and you never know what's coming. I want a second book it was that good :)
"A great cyberthriller from a new athor"
Cyberpunk, Thriller, Dramatic
It's a great modern cyberthriller that gives focus on how the new technology has a direct personal impact on the protagonist, and how it doesn't define her, but lets her define who she is.
The narration is excellent and very easy to listen to. Mariah has a fantastic voice for audiobooks
The story can be a roller coaster and make you gasp at the antagonist's actions and gall. A great look at how someone handles their implants and continues to integrate back with her life.
LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!
