This sci-fi was slightly more technical than what I normally read. I think medium sci-fi would be a correct label. I liked the plot and the world and it's horrors. I was a bit uncertain at first when I read the blurb, because a world ruled by the media? But I think it worked out very well. I liked Parrish as a heroine, especially her height. It was nice reading about a heroine that was neither petite nor doll like.
I liked a lot of the side chars, but I'm not sure I want to see them again. At least one of them in particular.
Might be a while before I work the courage up to reading b2 and 3, because as far as I can gather there are no real HEA or even a HFN.
That being said I do like her writing and style, albeit it jumps a bit.
