A Genetically Engineered Person and self-proclaimed "party girl," Echo Adams loves her diplomatic job entertaining alien bigwigs for the Galactic Federation. But the Bureau of Alien Affairs has discovered she's much more than she thinks--that a rogue scientist endowed her with skills and psi abilities dwarfing those of common GEPs. And suddenly Echo's luxury life is over, replaced with a far more dangerous one: a special agent expected to not only chase bad guys but eliminate them.

Echo Adams enjoyed her job as an event coordinator for diplomats. She did not enjoy her life being turned upside-down because her biological, genetic designer thought he was God. In her new role as “super spy” Adams must discover what her abilities actually are – no one has a clue – before the abilities kill her while saving a solar system from a mad (mentally and emotionally) atom-scale entities living in a giant quartz crystal. And, she falls in love with the local king’s man-at-arms. Plus, there is that inter-galactic war brewing and is somehow connected to the situation Adams finds herself on a technology-banned planet. The first thing I had problems with was the story is told from a first-person point-of-view. I am told this is common in paranormal romance, which I normally do not read because of the poorly-done, first-person point-of-view. Adams is an interesting character, but she gives in to easy. Once she understands her abilities, I don’t think she appreciates the danger she is in from the powers-that-be. Her new employment at the end of the novel is not because she has the talent, which she has, but because her supervisor wants to keep her close and under his thumb. The hero and love interest, Reynard du’Marr, is a man of his techo-phobic environment and is quite well done. The science fiction components and romance components are smooth and flow well. Good read after you get past the first 3 chapters. Close Encounters is a better book.
