Narration Type: Solo Narration
The Hero: Seth – He is a cyborg, who looks human but has nano’s inside him which help him heal quickly as well as metal organs and computer chips in his brain. However he has more emotions than some of the other cyborgs, so it isn’t as hard for him to keep ahold of his humanity. He was changed into a cyborg while in the military, but since the military tried to kill all the cyborgs, he has been working with others to free any that are still captive. He resides on a hidden cyborg planet on the edge of the galaxy.
The heroine: Anastasia – Her and Seth used to be partners. While in the military, she was part of a special project along with Seth. They became enhanced cybernetic organisms and were the military’s top spy couple. They were also a couple in real life, even got married, until she found out that Seth had cheated on her. Though he claimed he was set up, she didn’t believe it after seeing video of him naked, in bed with a Russian Spy.
The Story: Seth and Anastasia haven’t seen each other for years, though they are still technically married. Seth has been working with the cyborg rebels, while Anastasia has been spying on The Company (military and scientists responsible for the cyborg program). She needs information from a certain man, who is gay, so her usual methods of getting close to a mark won’t work. In short, she needs Seth.
This book is told from Seth’s point of view via solo narration. The narration is done by Troy Duran, who is my all time favorite narrator. He has a deep sexy voice and does a wonderful job. The story is interesting and adventurous. It has the whole military scientists who experimented on humans trope mixed with spy novel, romance and plenty of steam to boot.
