Review -- This book was a surprising read for me. It isn't something I would normally pick up but the cover was gorgeous so I said yes. The writing was fantastic, I felt like I was watching a movie, a very good movie. The world that was built was amazing, the world is run by a artificial intelligence. There were A LOT of technical terms but after a while I caught on. The beginning was a bit slow but I give that to all of the world building and after awhile I got swept up into it and didn't put it down.
The ending was WOW. You think about it long after.
I received a book for my honest review, no other compensation was received.
