Description

Gemma Keyes is an ordinary, unexceptional young woman with a lackluster life until an overheard conversation ends her budding career—and her loyalty to an old friend puts her very existence in jeopardy. As the truth emerges, Gemma discovers—the hard way—that invisibility comes with its own set of problems.

My name is Gemma Keyes. Other than my name, I am utterly forgettable—so those who never paid much attention to me in the first place haven't exactly noticed that I've disappeared. Vanished. Oh, it's much more complicated than it sounds. And let me tell you, the adjustment is difficult.

I should tell you about Dr. Samuel Bickel, world-renowned nanophysicist. We used to work together, but I'll be candid with you: He's supposed to be dead. Well, he's not. (Imagine my surprise.) Instead of the proverbial "six feet under," he's subsisting in an abandoned devolution cavern beneath the old Manzano Weapons Storage Facility on Kirtland Air Force Base here in Albuquerque.

"I need to show you what I'm protecting here, Gemma," he insisted.

I stared into the clear glass case. I could hear . . . humming, clicking, buzzing. A faint haze inside the box shifted. Dissolved. Came back together. It reminded me of how mercury, when released on a plate, will flow and form new shapes. Only this, this thing was "flowing and forming" in midair.

"Do you see them?" Dr. Bickel asked.

"Them?" I was confused. My mouth opened to a stunned "o" as the silver haze dissolved into blue letters.

H   E   L   L   O

Dr. Bickel hadn't pressed any buttons. Hadn't said anything. Hadn't gestured.

He grinned. "Ah. They've noticed you. They know they haven't seen you before."

    This book had an intriguing story line that I enjoyed. Found too many pages of technological talk that meant nothing to me. I found these VERY BORING and I skipped over them. Otherwise it was a good read

    One of the best things about my iPhone is its connection to the independent writers forum in iBooks. You will love this, the pacing is just right to keep you hungering for more and the characters are well constructed and are in no way lacking in depth. Even the technical details are solid, all in all it's a great read and I'm hooked for the series.

    I didn't want this book to end. I now am interested in nanotechnology. The characters were believable and captivating. The plotline was engaging and very addicting, which leads me to want to purchase the next two books in the series. I highly recommend because of the plot and the gospel message and, the intrigue.
