The Two Towers (Book One in the Two Towers Series) by Jamie A. Waters

From the Back Cover:

One hundred and fifty years after the earth was ravaged by war, the two self-sustaining towers built by OmniLab continue to offer a safe haven for those who paid the hefty price to assure their family's survival. But on the surface, there are others who have survived over the years struggling to barter and trade artifacts found within the ruins of the crumbling cities in exchange for critical supplies. When Kayla, a ruin rat skilled in computer hacking and scavenging, discovers a strange artifact known as The Aurelia Data Cube, she finds herself inadvertently caught up in a series of events that threatens the lives of the mysterious and elusive people within OmniLab. Carl, an unorthodox negotiator with a head for business, is determined to eradicate the corruption amongst his OmniLab brethren and has no qualms about using Kayla to do it. Unfortunately, he wasn't counting on the vastness of the corruption or his own feelings for the headstrong woman who turns his life upside down. Caught between the life she knew and a dangerous world that's claimed her as their own, Kayla learns the fearful truth behind just how far one man will go to obtain power and how far she'll go to survive.

My Thoughts:

This book grabbed me from the start!  Wow!  I loved it and just could not put this book down until I was done reading it.  The storyline was intriguing and it flowed really well, with twists and turns that you would never expect.  This mix of sci-fi, paranormal, action and romance was brought together in a well planned and executed world-building, futuristic plot that kept me reading, biting my nails and occasionally laughing out loud at some of Kayla's remarks. Please note that this is not a YA book.  There is definitely some profanity and adult romance, but it works so smoothly in the content of the book and is not over done in my opinion.  Perfect balance!

Jamie A. Waters has done an amazing job crafting these characters and developing this storyline.  And the editing is top notch.  As several of the reviews on Amazon stated, this is an excellent book that just demands to be made into a movie. The love triangle between Kayla, Carl and Alec is not like any love triangle I have read before and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
