She was the only Magic Born to ever escape the Rangers. Now there's a ten-million-dollar bounty for her return.
Trancehacker Tuyet Caron could have left New Corinth for good, but instead uses her magic and risks her life on a daily basis to help the Magic Born. She's been careful to avoid capture, but a careless glance at a video camera brings her face to face with the Ranger who let her go.
Captain Dale Hayes let Tuyet walk away once, but he won't make that mistake again. When faced with the ultimate choice, however, he chooses her with barely a thought. But that also means siding with the Magic Born and becoming a fugitive in the eyes of the law.
Tuyet and Dale plan to flee, but are caught in a deadly riot that kills innocent people. Outraged, the pair vows to bring an end to the Magic Laws, regardless of what that means for their own safety.
Firewall by Sonya Clark
This is a world where humans with magical abilities are thought of as 2nd class citizen. Segregation is law. Magic born rights are repeatedly striped away and the magical are struggling to survive. Tuyet Caron is a magical trancehacker working for the government, but when she ran from them she became an enemy of the state.
Captain Dale Hayes has always regretted the woman he let get away, Tuyet Caron. His one act of not stopping her caused him to be stripped of his team, rank and given a desk job. Now he has one opportunity to redeem himself as a Ranger, bring in Tuyet for trial and punishment...but first he must face the woman he never got over. Hayes must decide if he will get the career he always dreamed of or side against them with the magic born…breaking every law he has believed in. Hayes quickly realizes that the laws are wrong but can he and Tuyet make a difference.
Firewall is a highly original story taking place in a contemporary but dystopian world.
Greed and power take on an entirely new meaning when it comes to controlling the magic born.
Clark creates a fabulous world to explore. Her writing is descriptive and highly imaginative. It is a take on segregated camps with a magical twist.
I really like the take on magic and technology.
The plot has huge potential but never really gripped me. There is lots of drama and sexual tension but there are also a lot of side lines that distracts you from the overall story. I enjoyed Firewall but wasn’t riveted to the pages so I give it 3 ½ stars.
I received this ARC copy of Firewall from Carina Press in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 1, 2014.
