When I read the above synopsis of this book I was totally sure that I would have been put in the Non - Compliance sector in this world. There would be no way that they would put a microchip in me even if it meant that I would live in comfort. So yes I would totally be in with the non-compliant crew and probably fearing for my life at every single second - eeek!
Shea is totally kick ass and I'd like to think that I could be that brave in her shoes as she battles her way around mob bosses protecting others. When she joins up with the Boss's right hand man Quinn, to find out what Danny (the newcomer's) plan is. Shea is a talkative but blunt character whereas Quinn replies mainly in groans so the dialogue between these two is pretty weird but a good weird.
After reading a lot of vampire and paranormal romance stories it was good to get back to something very different. This Sci-Fi cyberpunk book really did more than the job. I almost read this in one sitting, I stopped myself as I had to make tea but I was back to continue reading. I absolutely loved this book and as it was her first book I was really impressed and I also found that Daniels bio on Goodreads was totally awesome also.
I can't wait to read more from this author and I'd definitely recommend this to all who love their sci-fi mixed with a kick ass female and a writing style that sticks to the plot. You won't be fed any useless pieces of writing here, each word counts. Absolutely loved it. Can you tell?
