Absolutely love the book. The story started really strong, and I loved how well-detailed action scenes were. I loved that it was set in the future. I would recommend it to action lovers. I'll rate it a solid 3 out of 4 stars.

I gave it a 4 out 4 stars. Sliver's character was the most interesting to unravel. The other characters probably needed a little more depth, but I still think it is an excellent read.

Anything related to future is interesting. There's a strong possibility that the plot of the story could happen, as the same could be said happening in other places right now. So I think it is best to recommend this book to everyone as it prepares us for the future that could occur or help us prevent a dreadful event and stop such a possible devastating way of living.

This book reminds me of the movie, " The Bourne Identity". The plot does sound a little realistic.I think this could be a good book.

Since I love thriller, I found the book really interesting, not to mention the mystery that goes along with it. Sliver's ninja skills were what kept me fascinated, I gladly rated the book 4 stars.

Actions + sci-fi makes my mouth water, so is this book. I would definitely recommend this to sci-fi lovers who seek fictions which are deviated from usual alien stuff
