I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
From what I can tell, this book is discounted elsewhere, but only free via Kobo. Considering that the author talks a lot about her Amazon stats vs. elsewhere, I suspect she's testing whether a greater number people still end up downloading the book via Amazon.
Anyway, I've reviewed this. Pros: nice action scenes and alien cultures. Cons: Reese's behavior irked me, and I felt like the story could have been tightened up a bit.
