Action, adventure, gadgetry, suspense: Everything a young spy thriller enthusiast craves can be found here. Swift and Hawk make for engaging protagonists, and their absurdly heightened world is one readers will be eager to return to. . . . An excellent kickoff for a new spy series.
This is a fast-paced adventure sure to enthrall any middle school age fan of computer gaming.

While the technological worldbuilding is intriguing, it’s Caleb and Zenobia’s easy, established camaraderie and shared worry for their loved ones that carry this breakneck techno-thriller.
Do NOT even pick this up . . . unless you can handle nanobot nightmares, unchecked AI, dangerous VR, and terrifying IRL wolves (and fatbergs).
