In Drifting by Noe Segal, Dr. Nadia Markoff is a leading researcher in a breakthrough scientific phenomenon known as Drifting, where a chosen few are able to project their self-consciousness onto others while they sleep. Drifters have also been known to predict the future as well as recall historical events. As Nadia demonstrates to a live audience, she is approached by a handsome stranger called Thomas Cochran who has been a Drifter since childhood. Nadia is not only drawn to him physically but she also realizes how much her research will benefit from Thomas's help. She convinces Thomas to be the face of her research, in the hope it will encourage others to come out of the shadows and live openly as Drifters. Thomas agrees, in spite of a new group of dangerous anti-drifters whose goal is to seek out and harm Drifters. As the anti-Drifters begin to riot in the streets, Nadia's and Thomas's safety is in danger. Nadia must decide whether Thomas's life is more important than her research.
I was immediately intrigued by the concept of the unique plot in Drifting by Noe Segal. The story grabbed my attention from the outset. I loved Nadia, she made such the perfect protagonist. Her intelligence coupled with her kind and caring persona was a perfect blend. I do not think she realized how beautiful she was and this made her even more likable. Thomas's personality seemed to mirror Nadia's, they seemed such a perfect match. I loved the chemistry between them but their relationship developed gradually which I liked. I found the tension and action superb as they played a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the violent group of anti-Drifters. The climax at the live event was so gripping and exciting and the cliffhanger ending definitely left me wanting to know what happens next. What will Nadia decide? I cannot wait for Book 2.
