Summary

"My name is Nyah and I'm a hacker. I know things most people would never believe. Things that shouldn't exist, but do."

17-year-old Nyah Parks is a genius hacker whose world is unraveling. Deeply scarred from a horrific accident that killed her father and brother and left her mother with irreparable brain damage, Nyah is barely holding the last shreds of her life together.

Now, her mother's health is deteriorating quickly and Nyah faces the grim prospect of losing her, too. One last-ditch hope exists - an experimental brain surgery that could buy her mother more time. But Nyah must scrape together enough money to pay for it before it's too late.

Desperate and with no other choice, Nyah turns her programming skills to cracking the firewalls of the world's largest corporations. She exposes their weaknesses, and then offers her services to secure their systems from hackers.

But when the most dangerous job of her life backfires and forces her to go on the run, she encounters an impossible reality that shouldn't exist, but does.

A hack unlike any other. A hack that will take her beyond the firewall of the human brain itself. A hack, which may be the only way to save her mother now.

What if there was a way to tap into the unseen reality that surrounds us all? Would you hack in? How far would you go to find the answers to your deepest questions? The answer lies deep beyond the firewall.

Tap in, strap in, and experience the mind-twisting ride with Nyah. What you find waiting on the other side of the firewall might forever change the way you see yourself and the world you live in.

Narrator was amazing!

the book was good, story was good. What really struck me though is the narrator. She did a brilliant job, and has a voice that fits so well with the main character. as someone who has ended up returning several books because I couldn't stand the narrator, this narrator stood out, it's a shame she's only narrated one other book.

very engaging as always

I love Ted Dekker novels, as a novelist he never failed to enthrall my senses and he always left me feeling content with the story, ever since Heaven Weaps I have been a fan. The narrator was perfect for this novel. She embodied the story well with great voice inflections that let me easily distinguish the different characters.

Very well written and read

I have been conintually surprised by the amazing symbolism that is found in Ted Dekker's books. I am a poet who has been in the phase of wanting to write a novel similar to his, and Everytime I read one of his books I find myself asking "why didn't I think of that?"
This book has been no different and touched on a topic I really do enjoy.
The narrator did a great job attempting to bring the emotion across that the characters were feeling at each moment. So much so that I found myself on several occasions thinking that she must have some kind of acting experience. Well done.
Overall, a good book written and read by great artists, if you will. Have fun reading (or listening)

Happily pleased

This is the first Ted Dekker book I’ve read/listened to and I’m happily pleased by it. I should say I’m pretty easily entertained. Not a book connoisseur and critic by any means. I enjoyed the story. At first I felt like it was two stories because of how he set up the plot but he weaved it together. I really liked his characters and their development. There may have been some over dramatic spots, but I didn’t mind it. As a Christian I was wondering how he’d we’ve the message of Jesus into it and I was pleased with that also. Wasn’t tacky or cheesy. Actually, I really liked it because he made the story feel like a sci-fi fantasy somewhat and then brought in the spiritual aspect of reality and it fit very well.

I also loved Kat Stroot as the narrator. I like her voice and she acts out the emotions well.

Overall I give it all a 5 stars. Hope you enjoy the book.
