Publisher's Summary

Kit has been projecting into other species for seven years. Longer than anyone else at ShenCorp. Longer than any of the scientists thought possible. But lately she has the feeling that when she jumps, she isn't alone....
Since she was 12, Kit has been a phenomenaut, her consciousness projected into the bodies of lab-grown animals for the purpose of research. Kit experiences a multitude of other lives - fighting and fleeing, predator and prey - always hoping, but never quite believing, that her work will help humans better understand the other species living alongside them.
But after a jump as an urban fox ends in disaster, Kit begins to suspect that those she has trusted for her entire working life may be out to cause her harm. And as she delves deeper into the events of that night, her world begins to shift in ways she had never thought possible.

What the Critics Say

"A work of intelligent, thought-provoking, spine-chilling science fiction that will delight and terrify in equal measure. Exciting, horrifying and compelling." (Jack Wolf, author of The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones)

Dull and Dragging

The storyline is very slow. Very British and dull . very disappointing.The theory of speaking with the animals could have created a great arena for interaction,but misses by smothering the story with tedium.

Not my cup of tea

Let me start by saying, I'm not a Sci-Fi fan generally. I got this book because I thought my love of animals and interest in them would be enough for me to enjoy this book. It wasn't. With that being said, if you like Sci-Fi, far out books, this may be for you. I also listened to this book rather than read it. That was a problem because it was way too complex, in my opinion, for an audiobook. I couldn't follow it. It jumped all around and confused me countless times. I tried to rewind several times, but that's tough to do in the car. This was one instance where I thought it might make a better movie than a book because the visuals would have helped me. I thought about quitting several times, but I kept thinking it would all come together for me in the end. It didn't. I was still confused and some things weren't answered for me. Some were, but I still didn't understand the answers when I got them. Credit to the author for the concept and the research. I'm sure some will enjoy it. Overall, this book was just over my head and wasn't my cup of tea.
