      Warning: Baby spoilerI would like to confess that I haven't read too many Sci-Fi novels: fantasy, fiction or otherwise. However, I'm open to reading different types of genres. I was given this title to read as a member of Y. Correa's Read and Review. I was drawn in by the blurb.

I often found it hard to to put down and needed to keep turning those pages to find out what was going to happen. When I did, something else took hold and led me down another great adventure.I thoroughly enjoye [...]

      While I give credit to the man for making the effort to create a world of his own, the writing needs a great deal of polishing and an updated philosophy of the relationships between men and women. It would be helpful for the book to be broken into numbered chapters, rather than a continuing string of dated sections. There was a great deal of information that needs to be cut, as this book was much too long, with the actual plot not even coming to light until nearly 1/2 way through. I would find i [...]
