I picked up this book because of some recommendations from friends on Shelfari. I was greatly disappointed! This book starts out so well, describing the Company, time travel and immortality and then goes to Spain in the 1500's where a little girl (Mendoza) is rescued from the Inquisition and put in a 'special program' with other children. They are trained and receive a number of surgeries that transform them into Cyborgs. The book then goes downhill from there as Mendoza is sent on her task to work in 1500's England during the end of Queen 'Bloody' Mary's reign. From there it is painfully dull and very difficult to finish. What also made this book difficult was that the vast infrastructure that was set up underground in the 1500's is very unbelievable. This book is definately not on my recommended list!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
