Product Description

From Booklist

Parrish's latest opens upon a world so tilted--people are "shifted" into new bodies, while their old bodies and personalities proceed--that it brings Philip K. Dick to mind. Gradually, the Dick-like paranoia itself shifts into flourishes of sword-and-sorcery and a cast of characters rather like X-Men. Psychokinesis is the theme, and Parrish makes it seem plausible, as his reluctant hero, Collin Boyd/Grant Borrows, discovers his powers in a kind of spiritual journey. The cliff-hanging plot mostly holds up, and the pace is, well, relentless. It's almost as though Parrish has too much talent and can't quite bring it under control. Nonetheless, another of Bethany's sf writers, Randall Ingermanson comes to mind, and Parrish is every bit as skilled. John Mort

Parrish has a good writing style for the most part. Good descriptions without dragging the story down and he keeps it moving. However, as I read I kept feeling like it was pieced together. Like he took his favorite parts of different movies and wove them together. I picked out tones from Highlander, Star Wars, Matrix, X-Men, Terminator. There were others I lost track of. There was even a strong biblical reference for anyone familiar with that type of thing. Still, I did want to keep reading so it wasn't all bad. I hope he continues to write and that he is able to present his story in a more original way. Most stories have been done over and over again, we just need it to be less obvious!

The ebook needs some editing. Minor things, like where there should be a break in the story, or change of location but the paragraph reads like it continues on with the precious story line. Also, the font size kept changing which was distracting (if there was a point to it changing, then I missed it).

liked the ideas, suddenly one morning Collin Boyd sees his reflection and it is not someone he recognises in fact this has happened to a number of people who all now have new identities and an individual super power. Colin who has now become Grant Borrows tries to find out what has happened. He is given clues by a girl with bare feet and just to help things along there is a rogue policeman and another person who has changed but is trying to kill Gary. It works well for just over half of the book at which time it all slows down and it seems to be padded out. Towards the end it speeds up and winds up with a climax which is a bit contrived and tries to encourage you to buy the next book in the series. I quite enjoyed the book but will not be buying part 2.
The formatting on the Kindle was quite strange with wide line spacing and some highlighted (Black Background) which was difficult to read. Also there were a couple of passages in script which I found too small to read without zooming.

This is about switching identities and superior intelligence

A man has had appearance and name etc switch and he is now being stalked by a killer. We start to learn half-way - why he is being stalked and why the switch and what it has to do with special giftedness.

Good suspense. Have to suspend your belief a few times but it is entertaining.
