Another excellent story. This is the second book written by Crookes that I have read -- the first was Blackbird, which is also outstanding -- and every one was a fantastic read. There are some errors in the books, but overall they are well written and produced. After reading this book, I bought all of his books that I hadn't yet read and I'm reading them one after the other.
