Jane Colt #2: Synthetic Illusions

Synthetic Illusions: A Jane Colt Novel - Mary Fan

Mary Fan has been an author on my radar since early 2013 when she released the first book in this series.  When the opportunity came up to be one of the spots on her blog tour for the second book, I just had to have her on.  So, stop yesterday for interview, stop today for review.  I am so glad I did.  Not only is she a really nice lady, but her book was EVERYTHING I expected it to be AND MORE.  I immediately got pulled into the adventure and, even though there's mention of what happened before (I admit that I have not read #1), I am not confused in any way - she "explains" enough that you have an idea of what happened, but feel the want to go back and know the full story (this could be a stand-alone because it's not necessary for this particular story to know ALL of the details of the past story).  The adventure is exciting, the characters are likeable (in fact, you feel a sort of empathy for each one, a shock at the things that come), there are plenty of moments that had me on the edge of my seat (which is, as far as I'm concerned, the only way a true adventure science-fiction should be) and a lot of fun to read.  I enjoyed the worlds that she created as well and, even though there are slow moments (someone told me once that every science fiction adventure needs those slow moments so that the fast moments really catch your breath), this book was amazing and a series that I will definitely read more of.

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
