Book Description

"There's no such thing as aliens. There's no God. There's just us, spinning through space in this metal ball, clinging on for our lives and hoping that nothing breaks."

Five hundred years in the future, the human race has spread across the galaxy. Vast mining ships cross the void, traveling from one remote mining planet to another. And in all this time, no trace of any other life has ever been found.

On a deep-space station orbiting the remote mining planet Io-5, two lowly technicians are about to find themselves drawn into a deadly game. Crizz Arnold is fresh out of the academy, assigned to a psychologically tough tour of duty. Nick Sutter is an old hand, but he also knows something about Crizz and the former life that has been wiped from her mind. Together, they're about to set a revolution in motion, and they might also discover the truth about humanity's place in the universe.

This is the first volume in the Finality series. Ends on a cliffhanger.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.75 out of 5 3 July 2014
By Monty D

This book written in the present tense, which is not a style I enjoy for this sort of story.
However once I got over this I did find it a good read. The plot line builds well with some surprises thrown in. The interaction of characters is good.
Some anomalies but overall enjoyable.
Sadly it ends with everything set for sequel which I would buy, but there dose not seem to be one - which is disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring....... 23 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Amy Cross books but I have to say I am extremely disappointed with this one. It really didn't grip me at all and I am struggling to finish it. I suspect it will be a book I wont actually finish. To me it feels it isn't written by Amy Cross at all, but hey ho, everyone is different and other people may like it

3.0 out of 5 stars intriguing story 8 Jun. 2014
By GAdams
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The interplay of the two main characters who are stationed together on a deep space station, each with their own agenda, is very good and kept me hooked as to what would happen next. It moved along at a steady pace with themes of control and questions of alien life dotted around. However one of my pet hates is bad spelling and words being omitted from sentences. The other reason for the three-star rating is that the story didn't end. There was an ending of sorts, but this must be the start of a series as the biggest part of the plot which drove the whole story, wasn't resolved. I won't reveal it here and spoil it for other readers. It's a good book which kept me enthralled but a shame about proofreading and a decent finale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story 23 Jun. 2014
By Jason Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Because I'm lazy, I'm going to write one review for all of Amy Cross's books and copy and paste in each (because in the past week I have read quite a bit of her work). I first came across her when I was searching for free books, and have since read all of hers that are free, as well as purchasing a handful.

Now most of the time, if I'm going to take the time to leave a review, it's going to be positive only. I don't see the need to negatively review something, as I don't like to take money out of small business's pockets (yes, writers are small businesses); and just because I don't like something, doesn't mean someone else won't. But I'm going to be a little critical here, just to address some of the issues I had, as well as some of the issues listed in the reviews of her work left by others.

Amy has a great imagination, and she comes up with good stories. Even when she tiptoes into cliched-fiction-land (vampires, werewolves, zombies) she is able to add her own touch so that it doesn't feel like you're reading the same ol' "Twilight" wannabe.

But....she does definitely have editing issues. If she has a "first reader" or two, they need to be fired. As I'm not an english teacher, I'm able to move beyond this for the most part, but sometimes she'll mix-up a name and that can cause confusion. The other problem is that her stories sometimes are a tad disjointed. Sometimes it feels like she changes direction midway thru and it can be rather wobbly.

All that being said, I do enjoy her work. I think it's well worth the price charged (if you don't snag any for free). And again, the only reason I drifted into being critical there was to give a heads up to potential readers in case they're the type of folks who lose their mind over small mistakes. Amy Cross is a good writer, and I believe she will only get better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally 10 Jun. 2014
By The Wade - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Finally Amy Cross has done science fiction. And the first time she's done it, she's knocked it out of the park.
I, myself, write horror/suspense fiction, and first found Amy Cross because of her horror fictions Asylum, American Coven, Ghosts, and The Night Girl. The thing that has always attracted me to her writing is the way her books are split into parts. Each part, in order, tells the story of the book, but each part tells its own story, much like how an episode of a television series such as Breaking Bad tells one story that moves from the end of the last, marching towards the inevitable conclusion of the book. Its a very creative way to tell a story, constantly giving us shifting view points and keeping us on our toes with surprises and new characters and entirely new directions we wouldn't have seen the material going. Its this format that has made me a life long fan of Amy, and that's besides her prose which move at breakneck speed, that are full of ideas and character development.
I am also a big fan of science fiction. I watch a great many movies and television shows, and read just as many books. If there's one thing that bothers me about science-fiction, its that the movies often use a science-fiction set up to use special effects to tell the story, more concerned with the toys of the genre than the genre itself, while some of the classic fiction is too dense and hard to get through, alienating someone who just wants to be entertained for 400 pages instead of immersed in this giant world. To each his own, but what I loved about this particular book was that it did a great job of telling an interesting science-fiction story that set up a grand universe and gave us interesting characters. This is fun, entertaining, great sci-fi.
The story takes place about a thousand years from now. We live in habitats on Mars. Earth has been quarantined for military purposes only. We have ventured far into the stars, not for exploration, but to mine other planets for their gases and minerals. We find ourselves on a space station orbiting the planet Io-5, where newly graduated academy recruit Crizz Arnold is to serve out five years with weathered Nick Sutter. Their job to maintain the station, maintain the mining equipment, and not develop a psychological defect known as Hidden Eye Syndrome. There is no alien life in the void, none that we have found in over a thousand years of space travel, and aren't likely to find ever, because we are alone. But if we are alone, then what is leaving claw like scratches on the intake pipes?
I can't stress enough how great Amy's books are. This is the sixth one I have read and with every new story I start, I am instantly enthralled and just as equally blown away. I am already eagerly awaiting the second series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Finality 1 Sept. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really like the stories by Amy Cross. I only discovered her about a year ago and now I want to read everything she has written. I won't, of course, since some subjects she writes about do not interest me but this series and the Mass Extinction series and what I hope are additional stories about the Library will keep me coming back for more. This book is about the possible brutal treatment of people in a future society and how everyday people deal with it. I really like the stories of everyday people confronting situations where they seem hopelessly doomed and how they come through it. Amy Cross does these stories very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars It had characters with a good relationship 8 Jun. 2014
By Jim Lion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had a few issues with this book, and stopped reading about halfway through. One, technology was too perfect. No chance of a mishap? I don't think so. Second, it ridiculed Christians and Christianity. I couldn't keep reading after that. Amy Cross is a good enough writer that she can probably find her audience. It's just not me.
