This is a refreshing change to the standard soap opera SF. There are some interesting ideas about life in the future and the plot keeps you engaged. I enjoyed the first volume so I bought the second and it carries on with the plot taking a new direction. The reactions of our hero and how she handles the situations are compelling. I can't wait for the third volume which brings me to the downside with these books - the third volume is not released until March next year! I bet it's worth the wait.
