Summary

The idea was simple enough for the alien race who took Aneka Jansen from Earth in 2011. Take a human, make her into a perfect tool to observe humanity from the inside, and so determine how best to advance this young race into their future. Unfortunately for them and her, their plans went awry, and Aneka became the only survivor on a dead ship marooned in deep space.

Only by chance is the derelict discovered, and Aneka is revived to discover that the world she knew is long gone, and she has to learn to live on a New Earth, in a body that is not her own. Aneka died a thousand years ago, and all that is left of her is a computer simulation of her mind running on a quantum computer inside a body of steel, plastic, and synthetic skin.

Is she really still the woman she thinks she is?

Great story but...,

I have read all of the Aneka Hansen books and thoroughly enjoyed them all. I so looked forward to the audible version but was really disappointed with the narration- bad English accent for starters and really bad reading in general.

Difficult to put down.

An absorbing story with characters I cared about. I'm looking forward to the next story about the life of our 21st century protagonist 1000 years in the future.

Sensitive Skin, decent sci fi and excellent listen

just sit back and enjoy the rhythm of the story. I liked the suspense of Aneka's discovery.

quite enjoyable

I have really enjoyed listening to this book, as much as I loved reading it. I enjoy hearing how the characters should sound.

excellent storytelling of sci-fi for adults

this is great example of character-driven sci-fi, with all of the human strengths and frailties on display. I am quick to call "bullshit" on weak science or plot, however, this work left me nothing but entertained.
well done! looking forward to the next installment.

Great new theme

I think Teasdale has a great new theme and story, it should make a great new series, I know I will be reading the next book as soon as it comes out, good choice for narration also, Gabrielle did a wonderfully job, I liked the British accent, all heroines need not be american.

Science-Fucktion for Nerdverts

Interesting plot, but storyline isn't well developed, and the only holes filled are those of the female characters...
Once you accept that this book has erotica interwoven into the story, you begin to wait for those scenes... but then those begin to disappoint as they seem to be somewhat rushed.
The breathy narration makes sense once you understand the erotic nature of the book, but the voice acting gets silly and awkward in many spots.
Taken for what it is, I enjoyed this title, but I think the author and performer can do better.
