    Perfect mix of Science Fiction and Fantasy!

    I finished the book in a day; found it difficult to put the book down and stop reading. Science fiction and fantasy are my favorite genres and they really nailed a great mid point. The story line was very engaging and the world they've envisioned, including the political and demographic groups made for a great setting. Overall, I enjoyed the characters and found them fairly fleshed out. I was surprised at several points but it never felt like the authors just tossed in a random twists or hadn't fully planned out the story.

    The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because a few character story lines didn't really make it into the larger story but I am confident they'll fit into the series well and my questions will be answered.

    This book is totally part of something bigger, like the story was cut in weird places. The book follows the traditional arc of story telling, but it didn't give me the clean ending I was looking for. The author explains this in his podcast about Audio manga and all that, check out the author's website to learn more, and that was a bit disappointing. Overall, however, its a totally fun story. I enjoyed it alot, am REALLY looking forward to the next book and joined this site just to leave a review.

    Surprisingly good read

    I originally got this book because it was free and i must say that i'm glad i took the time to read it. The story is quite original and entertaining, so much so that i actually purchased the next book in the series minutes after i finished this one. I cant wait for the 3rd book in the series.

    What did I miss...???

    I really enjoyed this story, but the author jumped around too much in the story line and left too many lose ends. Are we left to believe that the school geek is the stories hero....??? The author has something here, lets hope book two answers some questions!!!

    Love it, Love it, Love it.

    Fast Pace and fun. I am really looking forward to the next book. The plot is interesting, the characters are developed and the twists are totally unexpected (and I mean totally unexpected). Read it. You'll like it. The worst part will be waiting for the next book!

    Not te Not bad but not wonderful

    The writing style was a little bit juvenile and there were quite a few typos. Not a terrible story overall. The character development was a little dissapointing but that could change because the series has many installments.

    Awsome

    This was a great book. The auhor did great job of combining sci-fi and fantasy. The characters were well rounded and very realistic. Harmonics was full of great action ,amazing cliff-hangers ,and stunning turn arounds. This book left me begging for more and i cant wait to read the sequel. Goo job :)

    Got to read it

    I really enjoyed this book. I liked how it is based in the future, but I could still connect with that world. This text is well thought-out, character driven and has a good balance of comic relief and fun action. I liked the interactions with the characters, and the story kept me on the edge of my seat. Additionally, it has a YA feel to it. The story is set in high school, and the author did a great job of connecting the reader with that type of environment. I look forward to seeing what happens in the rest of the books in this series. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, clean story with a lot of action.The only thing that this book left me wanting was more. I would have loved for the story to keep going and I will definitely read the next book.

    Not to bad a book

    A good plot and interesting storyline. Fast paced and disjointed in some parts. To many story threads left hanging and some unrealistic charactors. I believe that this could evolve into a good series in time.

    Has potential

    Good story line. Some characters have great opportunity to be developed, and it still seems a little rough. Overall I found it to be exellent, it could be a great series.

    Not good

    This books descriprion definitly makes it sound better than it was. In mt opinion this was bad writind quality hidden in the desiving jacket of weapon descritions. Your book doesent have to be good if there are c-35tiger assualt rifles and physics bending weapons right? Over all i think there was a definite reson it was free. As in it was complete bilge.

    A fun romp into the near future

    A total remake of our crazy outlook on life, love and politics. The trilogy keeps getting more intreging. For a fun escape into where we are most likely headed, this is the one to take you there.
