My Review 
4.0 Stars!

This futuristic Sci-fy book is a mixture of Social Media and Virtual Reality meshed together and hard wired through your head via a chip or a hololens. Add to it the politics of Big corporation running countries and taking away free speech and you have quite a political thriller mixed with fantasy! The idea of people disappearing into an alternate universe or simply because they are an inconvenient grazer makes you really work your brain and gets you to thinking of what things could look like in a future with really freaky tech devices. 

When reading this book there is a bit of a learning curb with the language used as the author's have created a lot of new words to fit with their futuristic story line. However once you get used to that and move on to the story line, there is a great story here! 

I loved most of the characters, the primary ones being well developed and very fun. The story kept me intrigued until the end and the idea of the advanced technology and the mystery of it all kept me turning the pages! 


Gravity is a convention in SIM.  Otherwise you’d puke.  Distance? That’s optional.

High-voltage energy escalated as avatars shifted from one group of friends at the noLine to another.  Sometimes instantly.  Warp speed was the preferred method of transference, but way overplayed.  The black Madonna, the one with the stars of the cosmos shimmering in her bare breasts, wore the music of the spheres like a halo.  She rose like darkness and cast her shadow as she traveled.  Way fuKool.   With an avatar like that you could get past the bouncers.  Holding a ticket wasn’t enough.  You couldn’t just buy your way into this phantasmagorical fabFreak Switch hauteMode mecca.  You had to be inducted.

About the Author's:
Mars was born in Poona, India. His father was a biologist, and research grants took his family to Mexico City, Silicone Valley, Stockholm, and finally New York City.  After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science, Mars traveled around Europe and spent time in London and Prague.  He finished his undergraduate studies at Columbia College, with a major in art history and a minor in physics, and then got a Masters degree at Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture.  Mars then spent many years doing architecture as a day job and playing electric guitar (for The Shameless Sycophants, Dark Blue and Linoleum Blownapart) at night, in clubs ranging from CBGB’s to the Knitting factory.  Mars holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and an Elder Brother rank in Tiger Claw Kung Fu. Mars Dumont speaks three languages: Czech, Spanish and English.  Remaining creative is, as far as Mars is concerned, the most important thing in life.

Venus’ unique style took form in New York City with summers on Block Island under the supervision of her advertising mad man art director father and her gourmet cook mother. Their home was a gathering place for artists and intellectuals.  As a child she wrote and illustrated her own books. Venus’ affinity for art and design eventually took her to Italy where she studied for a number of years. Although she has lived and worked as a designer in New York City for most of her adult life, she still retains close ties with friends in Florence and a love of everything Italian.  Venus has a soft spot for Italian style anarchy and humanist centered dissidents.  She also likes to dabble in the mysteries of Astrology and Tarot and draws on the archetypes to develop the characters in her books.
