The moral and personal dilemma Mia finds herself is in what drew me in. A definite favourite of what I have read so far this year, very pleased that Anne Zaire put pen to paper... loved the dark twisted under currents, the clever nano technology, world and premise and of course the very freaky tense relationship.... a must read for those who like tense, erotic, psychological thriller/science fiction.
