I read Monument 14 and it didn't go over big with me, but this story, this blew me away. This is what should have been at the beginning of Monument 14, this is what should have started the story and this is what would have brought my review of book one to a higher level.
A bit scary. Why? Because I could see reality mixed with fiction. I could see people in our government going this far and farther. You don't want to think about it, but you have to wonder how they come up with the things they do. How do they know the effects on humanity? This is how, live test subjects.
Ms. Laybourne, I applaud you with this strong, scary, and totally awesome introduction to the happenings in Monument 14 and now I'm looking forward to the sequel.
