Ford's breakneck pace keeps the tension high, and the thrills coming the whole way through
Like Alias meets X-Men in a grimy LA setting. Full throttle from the opening page, this book gives urban sci-fi fans everything they could want with a spiky heroine, shady government agencies, high stakes and a diverse cast of characters. I loved it!
Furious, frenetic, fun, and 'f*ck you': All equally valid descriptions of this book and its punk rock chef/psychic warrior protagonist. It's like the X-Men, if everybody was sick of each other's sh*t, they had to work manual labor to pay rent, and Professor X was a sociopathic government stooge. A drunken back-alley brawler of a book
This is seriously the most fun you'll have with a book this year . . . The writing is totally rock and roll, edgy and clever, with classically placed twists and turns and more full-on action than you can shake a stick at. Definitely a must read
Proceeds at breakneck speed through almost 500 pages of madcap adventure, with some terrific jokes and plenty of tension
Ford's debut holds nothing back, delivering a sense of absurd fun and high-speed thrills that more than lives up to that amazing title
Teagan is a frank and funny narrator for this wild ride, which starts off with our heroine falling from the 82nd floor of a skyscraper and pretty much never slow down. Readers will be glad to learn that it's set for a sequel. A fast-paced, high-adrenaline tale that manages to get into some dark themes without losing its sense of fun
Ford's strengths are evident in the taut action sequences and suspenseful pacing
