Not since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows have I read a book so hungrily, quickly, all-consumingly. I read this book in one sitting, beginning at 8pm last night and now finishing it at 7:30 this morning as the birds are chirping outside my window. I could barely put this book down long enough to get up to get something to eat every few hours. Yes it was that good. I can't wait to read the sequel. But first... time for some sleep. I'm exhausted but satisfied. This book was quite the adrenaline rush.
Marcus is a San Fransisco high school student by day and a hacker by night. Then on one ordinary afternoon, there's a bomb... and Homeland Security arrives to turn his beloved city into a police state. This book is a fascinating look at what happens when those whose job it is to protect us suddenly become our worse nightmare.
Sidenote: I have since started the second book and found it deathly boring. Not sure what happened, but I couldn't get past the first chapter or two. If I ever write a book series, remind me to make the second book as good as the first.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
