"A very well written futuristic novel"

Captain Marcus Aurelius of the Alliance Starship Freedom wanted to kidnap Cindy Crawford so the men on board can look at her in person. Instead, they have taken Jess Wyndon, a mechanical fix-it person who thinks she is the victim of her brother's practical joke. By the time she learns that she really is on a spaceship, all she wants to do is go home. However, she can't because the Praetorium, a band of hooligans and rebels from many different planets are in the vicinity and want to capture the Freedom.

To escape these vermin and keep military secrets out of their hands the captain orders the ship into hyperdrive, taking them even further away from Earth. During the journey Marcus and Jess develop feelings for one another that they try to fight when they are not engaging the Praetorium. In the end they give into their feelings but they realize the future is not for them since they come from two different worlds.

Diana Burton's first novel is a very well written futuristic novel complete with quirky and humorous technology and an action sub-plot that is fascinating. The aliens and their homeworld seem so real one feels as if the author has visited them sometime in the past. SWITCHED is a great futuristic novel with so many surprises that readers will want to finish it in one sitting.
