About the Author
My love for sci-fi goes way back to my childhood. I mean, who didn’t love movies like Tron and Terminator when they were a kid? Or great oldies like WarGames? I grew up in the advent of technology and rode the wave of the dot com lifestyle in my 20s. It was a wonderful time to be alive, to see where tech could go. Being involved in the field as a database admin and then later as a hardware tech and web designer, I had my fingers in all of it and I loved what it was all about.
In college, I was a true cyberpunk and gloried over works by Gibson and Dick. I reveled in the hackers manifesto like a warrior and actually prayed for a world like BladeRunner. They were very cool, hyper-energized times we were in and it gave me scores of ideas and hands-on experience to dump into my work.
Now, years later, I am still amazed at what technology and science have continued to churn out. Dystopian worlds are not far off, and with my techie past, I have more than enough ammo in my brainpan to fill many more books. And many more shelves.

I received a free ARC from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. This is a continuation of Edge of Darkness. This is more Sierra's story. And it was so enjoyable. It showed more her internal struggles regarding the augmentation and her feelings. In addition to everything else going on in the world that she is dealing with. The first book, had a lot of background and set up and this one picked up where that one left off with the action. I appreciate that the author, when sending me the file, gave me the heads up that there were the content warnings for this book. It helped a lot. Both in my ability to read the book and my ability to enjoy the book. The book still reminds me a lot of Deus Ex with the augmentation. And I don't think the trilogy will ever stop reminding me of it. But it's not a bad thing. It's just what it is because I play video games as well as read books as well as have a lot of book reading and video game playing friends.
I was given an Advanced Review Copy, by the author, in return for a honest review. This is the second book in the Alpha Core Trilogy. I really liked this read. Descriptive writing style that pulled me in, and a plot that held my attention. Great novel! - Sarah
