"A hot, sexy futuristic sci-fi to fire up your neuras"
Book 1 in the Eve Aizawa series
Eve Aizawa, imprisoned for a heist she had committed, has
to work her butt off toward reducing her sentence. She is
sent to determine if notorious Adrian Black had killed and
taken over the body and wealth of tycoon Jean-Val Cedolin,
and thus gaining the funds to sponsor his revolution.
Sparks fly when she meets her partner Raul Mason, with whom
she will infiltrate Cedolin's pleasure resort to begin
their investigation as exotic dancers in a private club.
Yet, Eve finds more and more questions the deeper she goes
into Cedolin's lair.
Ms. Lee weaves a rich, complex story in a futuristic sci-fi
world, wherein the downloading of neuras into blanks
reminded me of the Cylons of Battlestar Galactica. Still,
she made her world's technology all her own, and it was fun
reading to discover what else her imagination thought up to
Her heroine, Eve Aizawa, is smart-mouthed and her love for
sex is sure to delight readers who love steamy scenes in
their fiction. Yet, the sex is not gratuitous as it is a
very crucial point on which the tides start to turn. The
story's obvious open ending leaves room for more Eve Aizawa
installments in the future. I'm also interested to learn
whether we would see more of her men in the next books. I
do hope so!
The only thing that detracted me from my enjoyment was the
info dump in certain places. Granted, readers need an
introduction into the world and into Eve's situation, yet I
feel that these could be done in a way that is less
confusing and more interesting.
