It’s not easy to get a cross-genre book just right, particularly when one genre contradicts the very existence of the other. Can you imagine the next Fifty Shades book going all Mad Max on us? Yet, Paul Alan manages to convince that one works with the other with this meticulously written ero/sci-fi kick off to the series.
The story itself is vivid and imaginative and makes use of its surroundings to enhance, rather than hinder, the story. It presents a worrisome look at a future that should be too far away for us to care about, yet I found myself really pondering over it. Definitely one to give a try if you like your futuristic sci-fi laced with a little nudge and wink.
