Smashwords book reviews by Caitlan Burns

    This felt like poetry, the whole book did, I mean. At first I was confused and that's the only reason I'm leaving four stars. The story was vague yet vibrant and I enjoyed it immensely.

    This was like a syfy channal movie, one of the good ones and I don't mean it as an insult, it really did feel a bit like a movie. I did like that you didn't know who caused all the mayhem until later. The story was entertaining enough, though things felt rushed enough that I didn't get really into it.There is little bit of editing that needs doing though most of it is negligible. Altogether, it's a good action book that's worth reading if you want a generous measure of robot violence and a bit of drama. I'd give it three and a half stars if I could.
