Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Narration and dialogue are flawless. We learn exactly what we need to know about this world at exactly the right times. The double-cross is a bit of a surprise, but handled well, and the resolution is very satisfying.

Con: The heroine is a bit of a "Mary Sue." Her augmentations appear to have no negative side-effects. Everyone escapes the encounter without any lasting injury.
