When you finish a good novel, you sit and ponder the characters, the the plot lines, and wonder about what could possibly be next. Cyberdrome gives you that experience.
I read this great sci-fi thriller 2 months ago and was waiting for an extended sitting to review this novel properly. I still don't have that kind of time, but I feel compelled to let you know that it's a great read. Like most people, I'm suspect of any first time, self-published authors. Don't let the low price, the fact these are first time authors, or the exclamation point on the cover fool you--this isn't low-brow, juvenile sci-fi. It does make you think (not in that awfully-written "I'm confused" sort of way). The characters, flow, and plot are very well developed.
Cyberdrome isn't perfect but what first time author is? I give it 4 out of 5 stars only because "love" is a strong word--I love Arthur C. Clarke, but I sure like the Rhea brothers' first novel and hope to see another (love often springs from "like," after all). If I were rating first time authors, they'd definitely get a 5, as would first-time novelist and Poe award winner Bruce DeSilva (crime thrillers).
As for technical Kindle issues, the formating is on par with novels published by large publishing houses. You won't find glaring, distracting type-o's or grammatical errors (unlike my review, I'm sure). All the basic kindle features are in place and functional (excellent table of contents, chapter skipping (back/forward), etc.).
Bottom line: If you're a fan of good sci-fi, get it. You won't be disapointed.
