This is a very good book that is appealing to most any reader. Thrilling, inventive, creative, & fun. I cannot wait for book 2!

This story had the potential to be REALLY good, but in my opinion missed the mark. There was no introduction about the timeframe of the story. It took a while to realize that we were many years in the future. It would have been nice to get some background. I loved the premise and basic plot. And I think a lot could be done with it. I just felt empty after reading the final pages. Sorry, but I would not recommend.

Mislabeled by the website, for one thing. This book appeared in a search for 'ghost stories', which it definitely is not. And yes, I did read the description, and that made the book sound like a mystery or a detective-type murder story. This book isn't that, either. What this is, is a story set in a post-apocalyptic world, with a protagonist who is neither particularly bright nor a character that evokes any kind of sympathy. I couldn't get through the whole thing, mostly because the descriptions and backstory were so vague that it wasn't clear what this girl was doing, why she was doing it, or how this world operated. "The Oct" is something that, at least as far as I got in the book before I gave up out of boredom, is the key to the story, I guess, but the author just mentions it as if we are supposed to automatically know what it is. The characters, including the protagonist, are not fully developed, and the whole thing comes off as just another science fiction story, written in an utterly depressing and one-dimensional style. I cannot imagine anyone sticking it out to read the series. I deleted it off my Nook. Definitely not a book I would recommend to anyone.
