Publisher's Summary

One brilliant young hacker. One experimental government aircraft. One chance to keep it all from going up in flames.
Still recovering from her troubled past, Farris is no stranger to change. But when the military transfers her father across the country to an experimental aircraft squadron, settling in to a new life is the least of her problems. As a series of apparent computer glitches threaten the security of the fleet and the blame falls on her father, she decides to put her computer skills to use, digging up the truth. Soon she's drawn into the perilous world of a hacker who is determined to ground the fleet - at any cost.
When all signs lead to someone close to her as the mastermind, Farris will have to burn more than bridges to get to the truth. She will have to risk her fragile new life to uncover the identity of the cybercriminal before they can escalate from harmless tampering...to all out murder.

I already read both this book and the sequel when I was offered a chance to review the audio version in exchange for an honest review.

Already knowing what was going to happen well in advance, it made this much that much more enjoyable. I caught a few things I didn't my first go round... so that's a thing.

One thing that really amused me about Moira Todd is how much she reminded me of Velma from Scooby Doo. I have no idea if that was intentional, but it fits Farris so much – her being a computer genius and whatnot.

I think she really brought out the story in a positive light. There were parts of the ebook that annoyed me a bit when I read them, but it felt more acceptable while I listened to the audio version.

I do hope Moira Todd is going to narrate the second book, In Too Deep, as well.

PLEASANTLY SURPRISED!

This blew me out of the water. I was so surprised at how much I loved this book! It had all the right elements to it--drama, angst, kicka**ary, technology, romance, suspense, danger, and overall excitement. I am so glad I got the chance to listen to this audiobook. My podcast will be doing a longer (verbal) review of this series and the episode will be featuring the author and the narrator of books 2+3, but I will say that this narrator wasn't bad either!! Todd really embraced the cool, down to earth, chick that was Ferris. She didn't put too much emotion into her voice, but Ferris, to me, is relaxed and calm--something I got from Moira Todd.

The story though, omg, I literally am starting book 2 when I finish this review. I loved it!! The story gave me Mr. Robot meets Veronica Mars kinda feel and I was all for it! I don't even like computer stuff (which is why I was nervous to read it) but the author really knows how to suck you into the story using other aspects of the plot. Even though I didn't understand anything the characters were saying about hacking into systems and explosive chemicals, I never felt lost at all.

Loved this book and please give it a try!! So well written!
