Okay, I LOVE this book. At first to some it might seem a bit odd, but that is what makes it so interesting. Perfect for a geek of any interest. Pick one up as soon as you can and read to your little hearts desire.
Set in a post-ecological, post-economic collapse and near-future, the story follows the story between two people apart of two companies/families. One dealing business in data protection and the other, in genetic engineering. Both end up in a situation to which they need each others help from both rival companies and from government "law." While keeping there company and families in order through the whole ordeal.
This is more of a girl-ish book now that I think of it but hell, even I was kept interested. At first, (as some books) it might be a little hard to keep up with what is going on since the action pretty much starts right away, and as for it being set in the near future, you have to get used to the type of technology that is common among these people. In it there are online video games, political bashing, odd biological experiments, and vampires. Before anyone goes crazy saying "Vampires! Nope.jpg," the vampires in this book actually are the most realistic "vampires" I've read about. Rather than being some fairy tale thing, it is more of a natural chemical screw up in the body (not to give it away). The fun thing about this book that every little detail helps toward what the characters will do next and what might happen. So instead of what appears to be a random filler chapter will later be proven as a important factor no matter how mediocre it is.
Overall I extremely recommend this book, not all will like it (I let a friend borrow this and he didn't like it at all mainly cause of too much attention to detail he said) but I'm sure most of this book will be enjoyable in the long run with all the action and conspiracies with government and video games it will have.
