Ouch. The first standalone book based on the Android universe, Android: Free Fall, was a good-if-not-great book, which is a spectacular surprise for a tie-in book. As a result, I thought this book might follow in the same footsteps. No such luck. This was pretty bad.
The biggest problem here is the oh-so-flat characterization. The main character has a serious case of "woman written from a man's perspective," and the other three main characters are direly predictable and unbelievable. The plot should make this storyline a page-turner, but I found this hard to get through because of the clumsy and sometimes eye-rolling style.
