Kelly St. Clare creates an amazing world beautifully depicted and full of humor and action. This sci-fi fantasy is a delight to read and I plan on doing so again as soon as I can! The characters are memorable and endearing. Romy is one of my favorite heroines! Genetically enhanced and expected to follow orders she breaks the mold with her endless curiosity and amazing capacity for compassion. Highly recommend for sci-fi lovers! Can't wait for book 2.
