Overview

When the local authorities ask Kyle Juenger to hunt a shape-shifting Glyrinny spy, he can’t refuse. After all, he can use the reward to replace his paralyzed legs with cyberware, and maybe even to return to his home planet. Besides, he hates the morphs—those invasive, brain-eating monstrosities whose weapons cost him his legs.

Kyle’s best lead is the Scorpion, a mercenary ship armed to the teeth. Grimm, the Scorpion’s pilot and captain, fascinates Kyle. He’s everything Kyle lost with his legs, and he’s from the same home world. He’s also of the warrior caste—half priest, half savior. But Grimm’s been twisted by life as a merc, and Kyle’s stuck undercover as a criminal on the run.

That doesn’t stop Grimm from coming on to Kyle, or from insisting he’s more than the sum of his past and his useless legs. But Kyle has other concerns—like tracking a dangerous morph who could be wearing anyone’s face. And as if things weren’t complicated enough, Kyle can’t tell if Grimm is part of the solution . . . or part of the problem.

    Brilliantly Written, Profoundly Beautiful...A Must Read

    A very clever book, with a very clever title. Kyle is every human. Grimm is potential. Every human needs potential. This is a profound and profoundly beautiful effort by a masterful writer, who has time and again caused me to look within and discover new truths about myself and humanity. Damn Voinov for his incursion of me. I had a long, descriptive review typed out for this book, but it just isn’t necessary. My review is simply to tell anyone, who will listen, to read-this-book. For yourself. "He understood it then. The potential, the utter, unbelievable freedom to be whoever existed underneath his skin."

    Great Sci-Fi Read That Will Appeal To All

    Aleksandr Voinov's newest release is an enthralling read that drew me in from the very first page and still hasn't let go long after the final page was turned. As a fan of the sci-fi genre I found the world-building and technological advances absolutely intriguing and the scientific ideas involving DNA manipulation thought provoking. The actions and ideas in this book seem like just the tip of the iceberg and I truly hope this is a world we'll be returning to in the future.

    The hero in this story is unique in that for most of the story he's unable to walk without electrically engineered prosthesis. I've always enjoyed less than perfect characters. I've found them more relatable and considering that I'm disabled myself, the feelings of loss Kyle experienced were very realistic and the technological advances helping him walk have me curious to any real world applications. The political and genetic intrigue occurring throughout this story was extremely suspenseful and kept me on the edge of my seat. I feel as though the implications revealed in Incursion are just the tip of the iceberg and long to revisit this exciting world Aleks has created.

    The romance between Kyle and Grimm was sweetly seductive and led to a sensuous encounter that respected Kyle's disability but didn't dwell on it. It was written perfectly, beautifully balanced and I wish there'd been more scenes like this in the space of this short story. Heck, I wish more authors would follow in Aleks' footsteps and incorporate more disabled characters into their stories.

    This book resonated with me for a number of reasons. The romance and suspense seamlessly wove together to form an exciting story that sci-fi fans and non-fans alike will enjoy. Ultimately, this story can be seen as a demonstration of the healing power of love and acceptance and on that level it greatly succeeds.
