Cyberpunk was a new genre on me, but apparently it isn't really new in the literature world. Wired was previously released in 2007 and re-released this month. At first the story line was a little confusing, but once it became obvious where the story was going it got better.
The novel starts with Roxanne running through the streets being pursued by two men she doesn't know. The men, Mason and Leo, seem to be fighting over her for no apparent reason. She manages to get away from them at first, but before she knows it her world is completely changed and she can't decide who to trust.
Mason, a friend she hasn't seen in years, is trying to tell her that she is going to write some simple code in the future and Leo wants it. He tells her she can't trust Leo at all. The problem is that she doesn't really know Mason all the well and when Leo tells her she can't trust Mason, she begins to wonder if she really can.
Now the chase is on, as the three cross cosmic lines, the three move from one time frame until the another with Mason and Leo fighting and Roxanne stuck in the middle not knowing what to do.
While the book starts off a little slow it gets much better toward the middle. The story line is complex and their is a lot to follow along with. Those who like action sci-fi will like this book.
Pluck a second out of time, the consequences will change your life forever. Is the man you love really the man you think you know, or is there a version of your life in which he's your enemy?
Seconds aren't like pennies. They can't be saved in a jar and spent later. Fate seeps through cracks and shifts like fog. Pluck a second out of time or slip an extra one in, the consequences will change your life forever. Is the man you love really the man you think you know, or is there a version of your life in which he's your enemy? If you didn't know who or what you were before, would you take a chance on becoming that person again?
L. Roxanne Zaborovsky is about to discover fate is comprised of an infinite number of wires, filaments that can be manipulated, and that she's not the one at the controls. From the roguishly charming Mason Merrick-a shadow from her increasingly tenebrous past-to the dangerously seductive Leonardo Kaysar, she's barely holding on. This isn't a game, and the pennies are rolling all over the floor. Roxy just has to figure out which are the ones worth picking up.
