I would really have appreciated some inkling in the synopsis/marketing blurb that this book deals significantly with rape and sexual assault. I am only part way into the novel,so I do not know if there are any graphic descriptions of sexual assault, but it is repeatedly brought up and its threat constitutes a key part of the plot structure. Just hoping to save readers who might be particularly reactive to this topic some grief.

Great story around the Boulder, CO area. Author delivers a tense story with a twist at the end. Worth the read.

I love the characters in this series. They are funny, smart, quirky & self-effacing. Though intelligent & intricate, this book left me a wanting..... something. Not sure what :( Still an enjoyable read though.

I you like intelligent mysteries, Stephen White is for you. I find the setting of the mysteries, Boulder, Colorado to be very interesting. White has a good sense of humor, and I like the relationships between his characters. He fleshes out his characters so you feel like you know them.

The story is fairly predictable but fun and intertaining. Mr. Hill, the narrator is, as always, fantastic and adds to the story. The charactors are vivid, charming, and all need the help of a good head doctor. It was fun. Kit

I watched how my sister's optics offlined. "Echo! Echo get up!", l yelled. Optimus and Bumblebee had to hold me back from chasing Starscream and Barricade. Ratchet was panicing. He never paniced. Then l stopped, seeing why. Her memory core....it was torn from her body. Ratchet wouldnt be able to repair that damage. Ratchet got Echo into Optinus' trailer and they sped back. My optics became crushed with sarrow. I drove fast along side them. This morning it was fine. Sideswipe wanted to talk so I had let him. It ended up in a long spar do to what he had asked. When Echo sent that message we all rolled out to help her. Now that i think back on it this would be the first time l feared death. Not death for myself but for Echo. I knew she can pull threw any thing but this was far worse. Her armor damaged beyond repair, the gaping hole in her torso, the burnt and fried wires and what l feared the most, her spark. Barricade had managed to shove his clawed hand into her chamber ripping out wires that her sark depended on. Fear was a constant thing. We were taught that "Fear no one but Fear its self". I now know what true fear is. I remembered that l collapsed near the bearth not even relizing Ratchet working hard. ~Normal POV~ I dont remember where I am. Who am I? Whats going on? So many questions, so little time. I had these...these things strapped to my body. I don't know how they got on but l didn't care. I ripped them off quickly wincing slightly in pain when l forced it out. I heard footsteps and made a run for the door. Escape....Escape my processer screamed at me. I ran somewhere yet no where. I ran into a room hiding quickly and quitely. I looked around in amazement taking in the walls around me. They were beautiful. I sat back and studied the beautifully painted walls. It was Cybertron back when it wasnt filled with war. I listened as l layed on the berth. It sounded like someone was whispering. "Echo.....Echo", it whispered. I dont know if I should be worried but it didnt matter. I fell into a deep statis hearing the soft whispering turn into a leering sound coaxing me into a deeper statis. ~Sideswipes POV~ I found Echo sound asleep in my room. She looked so peace full. I looked around wondering how she even managed to get her. It has been four days sence then and Vengence had been having raging fits when one got close to Echo. She was a sweet, caring gal. I liked her the first day we met. I took a blanket and pulled it up over her. I jumped slightly when her hand grabbed my arm forcing myself to stay at her side. I pulled a chair up with my other hand and sat down. I resolved to watch over her as she slept. Vengence would kill me other wise and l didn't mind at all. Her grip on my arm tighted painfully but I stayed silent. She gave a pained whirl whispering someones name but l couldnt make out who. Then my processer stopped working as l gave a vented jagged breath. She had begged for my help in her statis. I felt a smile form as I slowly leaned down. "Im here", I murmered softly and kissed her forehead before l drifted off to my own much needed statis.
