Micro Mention "Behind Blue Eyes"

Anna Mocikat

The scariest thing about sublime sci-fi books like Anna Mocikat's "Behind Blue Eyes" is the subject matter it addresses; the technological enhancement of humans, be it through mechanical or biological means, will have to be addressed—soon. And we dare not get it wrong.

I loved this story from the jump. As a long-term science fiction geek, I've always liked cyborgs. Plus, I'm always a sucker for rebels against a dictatorial regime, so Mocikat's protagonist Nephilim, who is both in this novel, had me drawn in pretty early. For me, in this particular character study, Neph is never more beautiful than toward the end of this book. It's then that she fights for what she wants and those people who she cares for, not for what she's told to care about or who—no matter how hard—no matter how impractical.

If you'd like to read my full review of this book you can find it here. Also, I recently finished the second book in this series so I will be putting up a full review of that here on WIO on a Friday coming soon.
