Incredibly complex interwoven story. Believable characters and plot, and plausible futuristic equipment. The story line gets a little confusing at time...you have to really pay attention, but Very good read!

Naomi Kinder is back with her friend Bonnie and her friend and lover, Leo, plus some new friends she makes along the way. This adventure is even more complicated for Naomi because it involves time travel and how they became the stuff of legends--or at least a children's story (dating back to their tussle iwth a black hole in Godspeed Inc)--and nanobots (the little dickens).
I loved the characters (the Medusan Marines are outstanding!), and I really enjoyed the story; as a matter of fact I finished it in one reading because I had to know what happened to everyone, including the main characters, the infested people, and especially Earth! And the story flows. (I did take breaks--to take the dog out, etc.--because reading for pleasure at the computer is something l rarely do. For the first time I saw a reason for buying a reader like Kindle or Nook.) I recommend this book because it's a great story, the quality of the writing is excellent, and the beauty and science of the background doesn't interrupt the story.

Wow! This novel is fun to read and has all the elements of the best of science fiction. It holds your attention and just when you think you know what is happening, the storyline takes a new and startling turn. Naomi is a strong, believable, interesting character and her adventures with the elite Medusan Marine Corps female warriors are pretty funny. Her romantic adventures are also really fun to read! I highly recommend Rescuing!
