Aspen Curie was the first wasp 99er ever to be created. Composed of ninety-nine percent human DNA and one percent parasitic wasp DNA, she's physically indistinguishable from other humans, yet immune to the effects of radiation. Because of this, she's been used as a first responder to the world's many nuclear microreactor catastrophes across the world.
But little does the 99er program know of Aspen's true feelings. Despite the allure of wealth, security, and honor, a darkness has been building. Her entire life has been a tour of duty with no end; she was created for the sole purpose of fulfilling one of modern society's greatest needs. However, soon she will free herself, and nearly destroy an entire city in the process - by detonating one of the most advanced electromagnetic pulse devices in the world.

I loved The Perihelion. Loved. It. I am a voracious reader, and science fiction is one of my preferred genres. That being said, it can certainly be a difficult task to find a great new read in science fiction that does not seem similar to a hundred other books I've already read. This is not the case with The Perihelion...This story is unique, has multiple major characters and viewpoints, and is simply a fantastic, engrossing read. I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys science fiction or simply a great read.
