Aftre the cover caught my attention, I knew I had to see what this was about. I'm a nursing student so the fact alone about the bone structure of this woman's leg reeled me in. But WOW! This looks so cool! The idea of cyborgs and a future that resembles nothing like our current world really is inviting.
