In a corporate-controlled future where the ruling conglomerates genetically engineer their employees, Millicent Foster is the best of the best. Physically perfect and exceptionally intelligent, Millicent is granted the uncommon privilege of breeding. But her daughter inherits more than superior genetics...little Marie has a rare ability that the world has never seen, and her conglomerate, Moxidone, will stop at nothing to have sole possession of the child. Teamed with Ryker, the formidable master of security, Millicent must risk everything in a life-and-death struggle to tear her daughter away from the ruling force who wants to own them all. The odds are stacked against them, but Moxidone will learn that the pursuit of perfection comes at a perilous cost - and that love can't be bought at any price.
Could have been so much more
The premise behind this story is good and the world building is excellent, where the story loses it, is the two main characters. Millicent and Ryker are just not likable. Millicent is a homicidal, stuck up, snob with almost zero personality. The only good trait she has was the love for her daughter. The story could have been redeemed if we would have seen more interaction there. But no, we got Trent who was the comic relief/babysitter and the baby barely made a peep as they ran for their lives. As for Ryker, he was a crude overbearing jerk and his only redeeming qualities were he was attractive and protective. But with Millicent being quick to kill was he really needed?
This story just could have been so much more. It could have been heart pounding exciting but without an emotional connection to any of the characters, it just wasn’t there. But it was entertaining I just never was at the edge of my seat. I am not sure if I will continue with the series. The world building is fascinating and intricate I just hope the next set of characters have more redeeming qualities.
