Full review to be posted soon:Ohhh this book took me by surprise. I was expecting a dystopian futuristic romance but this was more than that. There is a romance, but it doesn't overpower the plot or the characterisation and it evolves wonderfully from wary reluctant allies to a tentative bond that is really romantic. But the real strength of this book is the themes - themes of Nature vs Science and Reality vs Virtual Reality. I loved how Rossi explored this in a backdrop which is stark, barren and filled with terrifying but beautiful imagery of the aether clouds spitting out lethal funnels of lighting. This was a rich and multi-layered story and I eagerly await for the sequel!
