Read summary on Goodreads, here.

I downloaded this for free and tried to read it but I just couldn't get past all the melodramatic dialogue and the talking monkey on the elevator really did it in for me. I'm not against weird things in books but the monkey really creeped me out and this is one reason why:
Chimp 5M51 had picked a flake of dry scalp off Kara's head. He popped it in his mouth and swallowed. “Mmmmh. My apologies, I couldn't help myself. I am a primate, after all.”

That's just disgusting. Sorry but I just couldn't finish this book.
I can't say anything about the ending because I didn't finish it and I have no desire whatsoever to read the sequel.

As for the cover, I find the shiny light distracting and annoying.

Rating: DNF
