As a Phoenician, she shouldn't have to live among the humans, let alone take part in their world. But the Seven Chiefs ordered her to go with Raif, a Proctor from the world Outside. They said they had a Plan. Well, the Seven Chiefs always had a Plan, and Shayla had plans of her own after suffering 13 long years as a member of the humans' World Council. Raif had never intended for things to go this far. A few months, maybe a year, and he could send the little Phoenician girl home again, back where she belonged. She's not a little girl anymore and now he finds himself in competition with his own progenitor for control over his Heir--and future. It's not a Councillor's job to protect a Proctor but that's just what Raif needs right now. Can Shayla save him before he loses his mind completely? Baldwin hooks you into her world so deeply and completely, you'll wonder if you've been Adjusted yourself! You'll think about this book even when you're not reading it. You'll wonder if that was the Plan all along. You'll find yourself on the edge of your seat, dying to see what happens next--and dreading it as you turn the page, even when you've seen it coming for the last 3 chapters. The only bad thing to say about this book is that it ends, but it's a series book so at least the story will continue--with or without Raif! Vote for Raif on the Goodreads list "Characters Whose Story You Wish Would Continue" to see Raif again (I have a Plan but need your endorsement to write it!) (This book contains strong language, explicit sexual situations and some graphic violence; therefore, it may not be suitable for all audiences.)
This is my first time reading a sci-fi book and I can't wait to read book#1! I was hesitant to read the book because I'm not a sci-fi kinda girl, however, I did enjoy leaving Mother earth envisioning life on a alien planet! "Condition response" is suspenseful, romantic, funny, and sad all at once! I couldn't get the characters out of my dreams! I stayed up all night and couldn't wait to get home to finish. If you're a sci-fi lover you'd be crazy NOT to read this book!
Well done Friday!
