My review is up on Amazon and Goodreads. Really great book, Katie. How did you learn all those facts about NASA? The science seems pretty accurate (not so sure about the anti-matter--but that's the fiction part, right?) Your knowledge of Russian culture really shines through in your creation of Yuri.

I loved it! Hope everybody here gets a copy.

Thanks, Betsy! :bigkiss

Nope, that's real! I researched the snot out of it. I got a read from a physicist who's done that kind of stuff, too. At one point I mention some top-secret folders, and describe them--and the guy said, "That's not what they really look like." So I changed how the folders look. I researched antimatter containment on my own, but he was very helpful with that, too.
