Blurb: His mind can save the world, if she can save him from the human race…
The Shield is Earth’s only defence. Rendering the planet invisible from space, it keeps humanity safe from alien invasion. The Actives maintain the shield – no one is sure how – but without them, the Shield cannot function.
When an Active called Tobe finds himself caught in a probability loop, the Shield is compromised. Soon, Tobe’s malady spreads among the Active. Earth becomes vulnerable.
Tobe’s assistant, Metoo, is only interested in his wellbeing. Earth security’s paramount concern is the preservation of the Shield. As Metoo strives to prevent Tobe’s masters from undermining his fragile equilibrium, the global danger escalates.
The Shield must be maintained at all costs…

I know, I know, that’s hardly a start before quitting but I just couldn’t get into it. I tried to make myself and that took the fun out of reading right there. Add to the fact that I couldn’t really understand what was happening and it’s a recipe for disaster. There was no context or backstory. How am I supposed to know what the heck a Service is? I think the author expected the reader to understand as we read it. You know, sometimes that happens when world building when things are understood through context. That didn’t happen here.
It was all very dry with lots of linear descriptions. There is no emotion, and nothing happened that was of interest, its like a daily journal of what happened, just facts. It was like reading stereo instructions, just blah.
It’s a shame really since I got this book through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review but, can’t please us all.
