I liked this more than the first book in this series (Silent Blade). For the length, I thought this was well paced. Claire and Venturo are both fairly likable. My only issue is I would have liked more at the end. It felt rushed. Interesting world. Meli and Celino make an appearance in this one.
This was a hard book to rate because the writing is very divergent in the first part versus the last. Very crisp and rather mechanical at the beginning and more descriptive and lush in the last half.

This story is no different. Even at less than 100 pages the world building is detailed, the characters have depth,...
Great story. At first when I read about the psychers (psychics to you and me) on the bionet, I though of the Singh books. I still like Singh's shifters, but felt this book did much better with the bionet aspects
