Being this is the first I have read from Tess Rider it pulled me in all directions. There is paranormal which I love in this book then then is science fiction thar just made me want to give up. A lot of tech babble which at times seemed too much yet in a way is important in the book. I felt for Thea in her pain and heartache yet I rooted more for the General. These two at times completed each other and also seemed to bash in every turn. Have to applaud Tess for keeping it straight between these two when at times I wanted to knock them together. All in all it was a quite surprising book for me and would love to see more from Luke Sam Temperance and even Ava they all seemed interesting. Great book.
