This book is a mess. There are some good ideas in there but:
1) It desperately needs an editor (example: it uses "composite compound" as the description of a material)
2) Characters appear out of nowhere, and disappear 20 pages later, to never be seen again.
3) The action scenes are so confusing they would make Michael Bay blush.
4) The publisher should put the author's full name in the cover so noone confuses her with her father.
