Rating: 5 stars!
I very much enjoyed this novel! I am a huge fan of fantasy and sci fi novels, and the way that this one started out left me skeptical at first, but then I became entranced and invested in Brett's struggles, finding myself wanting to learn and grow with her. I loved the detail of the new world, Verita. It was incredible, the amount of detail and thought the author put into it. I rarely gushingly rave about a book, but this one was one I found myself enjoying immensely and will be reading again. I can't wait to acquire the second book. As an author myself, who does cliffhanger endings, I want to congratulate this author on the use of it--I almost bought the second on the spot. Fantastic story, well-rounded and detailed characters, and a world I would love to go to myself (I'm a biologist!)
