When Chandra signs up for a medical study to implant the internet directly into her brain she hopes to communicate with her partner who is in a coma, but she soon finds out that there is more to this study than meets the eye. I found Imminent Dawn to be a really nicely constructed read. Its very obvious that a lot of thought has gone into the plot lines by R.R. Campbell and there are a lot of threads to the story. The idea of having a narrative switch perspectives per chapter between 4 main characters was nicely done. I didn’t feel like I preferred one story line to the others which meant the pacing stayed consistent for me throughout and I wasn’t rushing to get to a different storyline which can easily happen in similar books. I think the only storyline that was a little weak was Wyatt’s – his seemed a little repetitive at times as he questioned whether his children were actually worth his legacy. The only thing holding this book back from being 5 stars for me was the fact that the plot got a little over complicated and convoluted in places. Every character seemed to be being manipulated by someone else or have their own constantly changing agenda and that times four characters is a lot to keep track of! The plot also felt a little drawn out in the middle although I liked the fact that it actually had an end. Although this is the first book in the Empathy series it didn’t really end abruptly or on too much of a cliff hanger which I appreciated. I also felt that I actually wanted a bit more background on the technology and how it actually worked and what had come before it. We got little flashes into other things – (h)ARMONY and comPASSION for instance, but it was never really explained what these were. The whole interface of EMPATHY I found a little hard to imagine which was a shame as I felt the author probably had an in-depth idea in his head but it doesn’t quite translate as clearly as it could have done to the reader. Overall Imminent Dawn is a great introduction to a wider series and an interesting story – I just felt it got a little too complex for its own good in places! Thank you to NetGalley and Ninestar Press for the chance to read the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
