When mankind toys with nature, nature fights back.
Astronaut Ted "Shakespeare" Hardiston is setting off on the adventure of a lifetime that will take him the rest of his life. He reluctantly leaves behind his wife, an android/human hybrid, to command the first base on the surface of the moon.

Very Enjoyable

I have never read a book like this before. I enjoyed the characters both human and not. The story was good if not a little short. I very much enjoyed the "Didn't see that coming" plot. I always enjoyed an original story line! The narration was great too.

A person is a person, even when not quite

Welcome to the late 22nd century where nations as we know them are truly changed, and AI has been incredibly advanced. There is work to be done to make the moon habitable, and Ted is one of the select who is capable. First, he must divorce his wife to save her from problems if he is lost to space. Not an auspicious start. But things get better, more complicated, worse, and then just plain bizarre. Do not expect spoilers. This book, while way too short, is too good for you to miss the author's brilliance. Expect fun, puns, Shakespeare, truly awful characterizations (in a groan and bear it way), sex, and selected shorts at the end.
Ian is simply marvelous with his ability to mimic accents, emotions, and dry wit. Hope to hear him paired with this author for lots more fun!

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
