Unlike many authors, A.B. Gayle has not been writing stories all her life. Instead she's been living life.
Her travels have taken her from the fjords of Norway to the southern tip of New Zealand. In between, she's worked in so many different towns she's lost count. She's shoveled cow shit, mustered sheep, been polite to customers, traded insults with politicians and needs to be forgiven on occasions when she gets confused as to who needs what where. Now living in Sydney, Australia, she finally has time to allow her real-life experiences to morph with her fertile imagination in order to create fiction she hopes her readers will enjoy.
The characters felt real and the plot was original; I learned the technology and world in a way that was entertaining, not in a boring way as if I was being lectured to. I did not want to stop reading and tried to limit myself so it would not end too soon, also wanting it to go faster to see what happened next at the same time. Dana and Ethan were written in a way that made me love them, I felt their ups and downs together, along with sympathizing with the other characters even if they were the bad guys. One of my favorite parts was when Ethan told Dana how he felt, it consisted of a fake injury, a marker, tape, and his knee … Yeah, he is not romantic … I thought that this book was awesome and loved it, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
