About the Author
James William Peercy fell through a portal into the publishing biosphere in 2012. Previously, he had been observing his own world and recording it since the age of 10. James continued writing while attaining a degree in Computer Science, getting married, raising dogs, and starting a business. Since all worlds exist simultaneously, he has added three book series, the Cliff Fulton mystery series, the Xun Ove fantasy series, and Ivan, Universal Space Tech series. With a mind constantly moving, he devotes his downtime to writing, enjoying a bit of travel, and adoring his wife, Claudette.

I know, it seems like kind of a weird statement, but hear me out.
Technology Can Kill You is not my typical read. In fact, if I'm being perfectly honest, I wouldn't have picked it up had it not been written by one of my favorite authors. I can also tell you this, however. Speaking as a person who has literally never read a sci-fi book in her life (nope, never read Ender's Game), Ivan's story is an excellent one to start with! You don't have to be a sci-fi fan (or even understand it really), to be swept up in Ivan's intergalactic shenanigans or in Suzie's heartfelt journey. That is mostly due to Mr. Peercy's gift for description and setting.
As always, however, the true heart and joy of the story lies with its characters. Ivan, to me, is like a combination of Chris Pratt and Freddie Highmore (which might sound strange, but in my head, it works). He's smart, adventurous, quick-witted, but to me, he also seemed JUST nerdy enough to justify my Freddie Highmore dream-casting. He travels around the universe with his A.I., Suzie, to guide and assist him and keep him out of trouble. I don't want to say that I knew what was coming, but I'll admit, I kind of new what was coming, which is why I say that James William Peercy has a way with endings. I loved the ending. I loved it. And I can't wait to read the sequel. I simply have to know what happens.
Now, if you ARE a sci-fi fan, I doubt I have to sell you on anything. I can guarantee you will love every moment of this stellar adventure. It's full of fun space gadgets and new planets and weird species (speaking of which, I just remembered that I HAVE read sci-fi books before! I've read the Alienated series by Melissa Landers and the Dating an Alien Pop Star series by Kendra L. Saunders! To be fair though, both of those series are about Earth girls falling in love with hot alien guys. Technology Can Kill You is NOT that kind of sci-fi book). That may have completely just derailed my review, but you get what I'm saying. I'm not a typical sci-fi fan, but I still enjoyed this book. Actual sci-fi fans will LOVE it.
Can't wait to start Book 2!
