On - Jon Puckridge

FTC Compliance Statement: I received a free, time-limited, electronic review copy of this book from the publisher via in exchange for my honest review, which is provided below. I have not been otherwise compensated for this review in any way and my opinion is my own.

Sci-fi and fantasy fans will undoubtedly enjoy this mind-bending thriller, another winning book from Hague Publishing. The plot gave me a lot of food for thought, to be honest - at the risk of posting spoilers, the corporate ownership of everything, including time itself, seems like a harbinger of things to come for our society the way things are currently going. I really liked the main characters, Zann and Youren, one human, and one not - or is he? This is yet another area where the author is extrapolating on some current trains of thought, about what it means to be sentient, and how that intersects with a person's or being's rights. Now I'm getting rambly, sorry. Sufficient to say that I am still thinking about this book and that it made a real impression. If you liked movies like Minority Report and The Running Man, and recent TV shows like Almost Human (which I really enjoyed, and not just because it starred Karl Urban) and the BBC's Humans, you will enjoy this fast-paced sci-fi book.
