Description

Byron Shaw can track and find anyone on Earth. Except the people who tried to kill him.

The Lattice—humanity’s most staggering creation. It allows its users to see and experience the past and present anywhere in the solar system. You can watch Shakespeare’s first production of Hamlet, soar over the rings of Saturn, or take in the Sermon on the Mount. But more than that, it allow you to see the thoughts and feelings of anyone you ‘jump’ into. Anyone can access it. Privacy no longer exists and anyone can re-live any moment of your life.

Most people love it. Some want to destroy it.

Colonel Byron Shaw has just saved the Lattice from the most dangerous attack in its history. Now he’s been tasked to find out who launched it, but there’s a problem: the conspirators have somehow managed to keep their identities secret, even from the Lattice. Made famous by his heroics, Shaw will have to solve this mystery with the world watching—including the people he’s looking for. But the one question he can’t allow himself to think is starting to creep into his mind … does the Lattice deserve to be saved?

    I find this book engaging. It isn't a "cliffhanger" but it has the necessary detail needed to keep me coming back for more. I will provide 5 stars, to encourage sci-fi readers to give it a go.

    This book is nothing short of phenomenal. It was refreshing to read such a captivating book that wasn't another dystopian futuristic teen drama. Like everything, nothing is perfect and at times the fight sequences were a little hard to follow. That aside it was a great read and I am thoroughly looking forward to reading the sequel.
  • Once I had a sample I could not stop reading even though I knew it was a trilogy...

    I am sort of new to iBooks and after the first time "burned" by downloading unknowingly the "free" first book of a trilogy I was never going to again. But the description sounded so interesting on this, the sample hooked me. I want more, but the first book by itself was satisfying too. There are so many messages in this book that I want to think more about. Only wished I found the characters a little more believable- but later books may explain. Thanks for discounting this book so I read it.
