STAR RATINGS GUIDE
High Tension YA Adventure
🧡 First thing’s first. This is the second book in the same world as the excellent Mindwalker, but a totally different story. To me, this was heavier on the Y than the A of young adult. So, this wasn’t for me, but I wanted to review it for the “me” that would have been all about this when I was also heavier on the Y than the A.
💚 This was an edge-of-seat fast-paced adventure with a likeable protagonist who has everything to lose. Motivations are genuine and stakes are skyscraper high. More on the earnest than humorous side and an interesting meld of religion and tech.
Big thanks to NetGalley and Hodder & Stoughton Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.
SQUAWKING THE TALK
🎧 Faultless production, including the chapter headings. Add to that the phenomenal dulcet tones of Stephanie Cannon and this was a winner on the listening front.
🎧 Take note: There’s lots to keep up with. Small details and many characters abound, so keep your ear drum on a swivel. I had to relisten when I realised I’d missed the intro of a new character.

They saved her life. But at what cost?
Born into a religious, anti-tech cult, seventeen-year-old Indra lives a simple, mod-free existence on the fringe of society. But when an illicit trip to the city leaves her with a debilitating - and terminal - condition, Indra must make a choice: die faithful, or betray her Order and accept the cure Glindell Technologies is offering.
Forced to sign over full ownership of her life, Indra is horrified to learn how Glindell chose to save her mind and body. On the outside, she still looks the same. On the inside, Indra's not so sure. She's missing time, for one thing, and more than once, she finds herself in places she really shouldn't be, with no memory of how she got there and abilities she can't explain.
So when news breaks of a vicious attack against Glindell's biggest rival, Indra begins to suspect the worst about her new master. With help from her one friend at the company, Tian - a research assistant with a genius IQ and a smile that won't quit - Indra manages to escape the lab. Then together with the anti-corp faction she and Tian turn to for help, Indra must uncover the truth behind the procedure that saved her life, before Glindell can use it to change the face of technology - and what it means to be human - forever.
