This was a very unusual book, and the first one I have read by this author.
It is set in the near future and there is much more going on here than Antimone being the only woman who has survived childbirth in 16 years. She is a complex character and she is ably supported by the secondary characters in this book, in particular, the evil Rosalind Baxter.
I was on the edge of my seat more than once, this is a rollercoaster ride of a book, no doubt, and not for the weak of heart.
I really enjoyed reading this book and there is no doubt in my mind that the scenarios which were portrayed therein, could really happen, which made the tension increase even more and it was very hard to put down. I thoroughly enjoyed the ending!
