Overview

She may learn to live for love…if vengeance doesn’t kill her first.

Plix spends her lonely, gritty life trying to solve the mysteries her father left behind. Armed with a variety of cybernetic enhancements and a talent for getting into places she shouldn’t be, she searches for clues to his murder—and who’s responsible for poisoning her city.

Waking up on a street corner with her brain wiring fried to a crisp, she figures she must have gotten close this time. There’s only one man she trusts to pull her back from the brink: a tuner who can retrieve the evidence hidden deep in the recesses of her mind. A man she dares not let too close to her heart.

When Edison downloads a secret SynDate schematic from Plix’s burnt-out circuitry, he knows with dreadful finality that nothing—not even the fiery kiss he’s been holding back for years—will stop her from pursuing her quest past the point of insanity.

All he can do, as he helps her plan her final mission, is ease her pain, watch her back…and hope one of them doesn’t pay with their lives.

Warning: Contains a heroine intent on kicking ass and taking names, a high-tech dystopia, cybernetic body modifications, and emotionally charged, sensual romance.

    More of this, please.

    Is it enough of a review to say that I would like to read more of this? Is that enough of a recommendation for you? I would be happy if we got, say, 3-4 more books, perhaps prequels? I would love to hear more about Plix's implants: the way the technology is seamlessly worked into the characters is fascinating. (also I now want an ocular implant. yes.) Shades of Gibson and Stephenson, but with, frankly, a more interesting story. (sorry guys.)

    I find myself a SuperFanGirl of Jeanette Grey. I hope I don't startle her with my "ZOMG I lurrrve this"-ness of my reviews, but I do. I love her writing, her characters. They are so strong and flawed and so (eventually) willing to open their hearts to love. Does that sound cheesy? It's not

    Chapter One:The dream

    I was the outcast. The girl at the back of the room. The pne you never saw. No one knew who i was and i was okay with that. I didnt have a boyfriend. But life goes on. I was happy being alone. Until my peaceful world crashed down around me one night. I opened my eyes i lay on a bed of leaves in a clearing. I was in the woods. But yet i wasnt scared. It all seemed strange yet familiar. I felt like i knew this place. A figure emerged from the shadows. "Decinda." The man said bowing. I tried to tell him my was Ceicelia but words would not come. "You have come of age my dear. Now you must discover your gift." I managed to say "Who are you?" The man looked at her. 'In due time my child. In due time." Suddenly my vision darkened and i saw myself but it wasnt me. I was a horse. Winged. With a horn...i wasbeyond recognition but something said it was me i sensed it. I shook myself awake. I awoke in my room confused. Then i remembered my dream. I shivered. The man creeped me out and the other thing.....i dont even know what to say about that. The next night i had the same dream but instead of the horse i was a fairy. These werent just dreams something was happening but i wasnt sure what.

    I accept this dangerous assignment This short futuristic sci-fi

    I accept this dangerous assignment This short futuristic sci-fi novella
    is the perfect mind mint. We get just enough story as we meet Plix in a
    very compromising position as she is evaluating her exact position and
    condition. Delving farther into it you find a spin on the normal
    romantic entanglement with Edison as Plix unravels a startling
    government cover-up. I wished there was more but I did like what I got
    here.
