"Excellent Science Fiction"
The year is 2150 and the world is supposedly finally at
peace but things are not what they seem. Keerie James has
lived within the Atlanta Residence for the Mentally
Diseased all of her life. She and a small group of tenants
know something is wrong within the organization and finally
her father decides that things need to be made public but
he's being held prisoner. Keerie knows he's not mentally
diseased. He just knows too much about certain things going
on. She cozies up to Jael Smithman, a technician who
watches to make sure the diseased do not escape and asks
for his help.
Jael reluctantly agrees to help Keerie but at what price?
What Keerie and Jael don't know is there's someone else
within the organization who is playing both ends against
the middle. Before Keerie and Jael figure it out, they are
ratted out by the double agent. Now they are fighting for
their very lives and don't know what the outcome will be.
They cannot begin to understand the horror they will have
to go through before things are finally all right with the
world yet again.
I was simply fascinated with the future world that Stephen
Crane Davidson created. He put Jael and Keerie through all
sorts of horrors and still they stood strong against
whatever was thrown at them. I was amazed at the depth of
emotional pain these characters went through and still
neither would break or would forget about the other. I was
able to travel from the Earth to the moon and back and not
even have to leave the comfort of my own home! This is a
truly spectacular read.
