Review by: BD Branchy on Sep. 19, 2015 :
I couldn't decide on 2 or 3 stars.
The writing began rather jagged, before managing to settle into a rhythm.
I had trouble feeling anything for the protagonist. He certainly didn't care for him, relate to him, and his emotions felt artificial.
The world setting was perfect.
As a prologue, did it encourage me to read the rest. Sadly no.

Review by: Jon Olson on May 25, 2012 :
To me Marcus seemed to symbolize all of those people who have to make hard decisions everyday that aren't the most popular even though they yield the most logical and best results. This was an excellent read and the author did a tremendous job painting a future that is both imaginative and plausible. It really makes you think about the current state of the world and how today's events will influence the future.

Review by: Ilianna MacAbby on March 21, 2012 :
I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the main character, Marcus: A man with no family or friends who put everything into his job. Marcus faces a difficult decision that not only cost the lives of many refugees, in what Marcus considered mercy killings, but he loses his job and is shunned by the masses. I don’t want to give the whole story away but it is definitely a worthwhile read! The author really had me thinking about what life might be like 32 years from now with its elaborate caste system and universal/omniscient control system called “The Cloud.” A little unnerving.

Moral issues seem to plague the main character, Commander Adario. I think he believes that the actions he took were right, but yet he struggles with what society says and feels was right. He is starting over and yet I feel he will be retracing his past. I am curious to see where Commander Adario came from and can not wait to read his story from the beginning. I'm already hooked.

I have no idea what the year 2044 will bring but the author definitely has me contemplating the fate of mankind. The main character, former commander Marcus Adario, is coming to terms with his role in protecting a society in transition and with the beginning of a new career. Excellent beginning to what I know will be an excellent science fiction work.
