I began reading this author with her book 'In the Company of Others'. Her writing style is interesting, in that you see the story progressing from many points of view, but all first person. The same writing style was employed in this novel, and this communicated the story very effectively. You become entwined with the characters, and I can't wait to start the second book, to see what and who the main character becomes. Also, I couldn't put the book down, as the pace of the story allows no respite for a breather, but is something that I had to finish in one sitting. I was carried along in the story, on the adventure, and for me, this is one of the best things that can recommend a story!

A woman with amnesia and on the run is forced to seek the aid of a space ship captian who might be the last person she can trust. This is a book that was difficult to put down. The twist and turns are wonderful. It has a little bit of everything. The sequel is equally engaging.

Not exactly engaging. I too easily put it down and couldn't pick it back up. Better off with so many other books out there.
