Page after page of sentence fragments. I suppose this is supposed to be a 'style.' I couldn't force myself to read more than a couple chapters, waiting for some redeeming factors to catch my interest. None presented themselves. ( )

Surprisingly entertaining and creative, though the lead character is a bit of a Mary Sue (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MarySue). ( )

A super-powerful artificial soldier flees from the human society that created her and tries to hide with a new civilian identity on an enemy planet. However, she ends up getting caught in the middle of double- and triple-crosses involving security forces from both civilizations. Although a number of reviews have described the book as full of sex, it isn't; indeed, what little sex takes place during the plot happens during discreet fade-outs. Instead, the heart of the story is a melodrama that plays out on the interior emotional landscapes of several characters. To the extent that the book has a conceptual focus, it's on the nature of self in society -- not the philosophical question of what it means to be human, but the political question of what it means for a society to grant or deny equal rights to a being who is so fantastically physically superior but so emotionally similar to an ordinary human. I found the action sequences bland and jargon-laden. I don't care about guns, or explosions, or objects smashing together at high speed, and tended to lose focus in these sections. I liked several of the characters well enough that I'll go ahead and try the second book in this series. ( )
