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

Pro: The black-hole-like “vortal” and the chaos is causes are good material for a story. Susan and Jenny manage to save the city by cooperating and sacrificing their own lives.

Con: The clumsy political message is an annoying distraction that keeps bouncing the reader out of the story.
