One of the people Jazz smuggles for asks for a major tasks. He wants Jazz to sabotage some machines of a rival so he can take over the management. Jazz reluctantly agrees.

Can Jazz get herself out of the mess she’s created? Can she find out who’s truly behind all this? Or will who’s after her kill her?

Rating: 4.3 – a great tale of science fiction and fantasy

Opinion: This was an interesting science fiction tale. Like the other book I read by this author, it was very scientific and very accurate. But this one was presented in a more average person manner. I feel like this one was geared more towards young adults, too. There was still a fair amount of cursing in this book, though. It’s not a huge deal but something to be aware of. While I don’t usually read science fiction, I enjoyed this book. I liked that it felt possible some time in the future. It felt more grounded in reality. While that’s not the main reason I enjoy reading, but it’s a nice break. It also makes the book feel more consistent. I also liked the fact that the main character doesn’t have a drastic change in character just because she saves the day. Also, I enjoyed the fact that not everyone likes her just because she saves them. It’s a nice break from the tradition of the hero saves everyone and instantly becomes liked and is now a better person all around. This was a great book. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a different kind science fiction book and a different kind of main character.
