How are the fates of a programmer on vacation at a beach resort and a pilot aboard a starship intertwined? The answer could be far stranger than you can imagine! I was immediately intrigued by the story, which can be described as The Prisoner meets Total Recall. The characters are well-developed and beautifully illustrated. The plot is perfectly paced, never dragging and never feeling rushed. Like a tale reminiscent of The Outer Limits, just as one mystery is cleared up, more surface – with the biggest surprise revealed at the end!
What to say about this amazing book? I will say that the first chapter caught my eye, the second chapter invited me to learn more, and by the third chapter I felt that I just had to have this book. The mystery of the story just got to me and I had to keep reading; of course as the story progress this feeling only grows stronger. The characters are well built, the plot is rich and the tension builds up with each passing page. I have to say that my excitement became more and more intense as I keep discovering things and finding new mysteries… which happens in almost the entire book. I am not exaggerating when I say that this book is a must for any sci-fi / mystery lover. It simply is amazing.
