I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as it was masterfully told by an author in full command of his art. The story is one of unrequited love, technologies place in our day to day lives, all bootstrapped to a dark, fast-paced thriller.

Pop culture-savvy readers will enjoy...

A world where wars are fought by robots and where an expiring physical body can be exchanged for a semi-immortal ‘sleeve’ make this book truly thought provoking. The author does a great job combing drama, action, and philosophical questions, and his characters...
