“You are the Bridge…”
Allie Taylor lives in a world populated by seers, a second race discovered on Earth at the beginning of the 20th Century. Psychic, hyper-sexual and enslaved by governments, corporations and wealthy humans, seers are an exotic fascination to Allie, but one she knows she’ll likely never encounter, given how rich you have to be to get near one.
Then a strange man shows up at her work –– then another –– and pretty soon Allie finds herself on the run from the law, labeled a terrorist and in the middle of a race war she didn’t even know existed. Yanked out of her life by the mysterious and uncommunicative Revik, Allie discovers her blood may not be as “human” as she always thought, and the world of seers might not be quite as distant as she always imagined.
When Revik tells her she’s the Bridge, a mystical being meant to usher in the evolution of humanity––or possibly its extinction––Allie must choose between the race that raised her and the one where she might truly belong.
J.C. Andrijeski is a new author to me, and for the first book that I've read by her - I'm excited to say that I really enjoyed this sci-fi novel. The plot of this novel was very complex, and interesting, and kept me hooked as I turned every page. There were moments where the pacing slow-downed, but I felt overall, it was exciting and original.
I did like getting to know the characters in this novel, but I felt like there was not a lot of character development occurring throughout the book. I felt like I would have liked the characters more if that had been the case - hopefully they will grow in later books.
I also, personally, would have enjoyed more background and history to the world - which is such an intriguing and different world than the one that we live in. But that didn't take away from the overall experience I have from reading this book.
I would highly recommend. It was a great read - full of action and excitement. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
