When Saoirse 'Shea' Alverez Kelly refuses to subject herself to the newest bit of Gov-Tek, she's thrown into Non-Compliance Sector 610-23, the Heartland district. Set in a grim future where government control is nearly absolute, Shea's technical experience quickly comes in handy. With the help of her friend Wynne and a few well placed hacks, they are able to procure some much needed goods for the residents.

It's this sort of expertise that gets them noticed and they catch the attention of Boss Jennings, gangster and semi-benevolent protector of the Heartland district. With Shea and Wynne's help, he hopes to take down his biggest rival and restore peace and order to the community. After one too many encounters with the psychotic rival, Shea is quick to take up Boss's offer.

Intriguing and fast paced, Non-Compliance: The Sector by Paige Daniels is a novel that can be quickly summed up in one word: awesome! As I was reading Non-Compliance and getting closer and closer to the end, I kept hoping for some kind of Disney magic to make the pages increase, it was that good. But alas and alack, it did in a horrible cliffhanger-y manner. Shea is cool and smart (no seriously, really smart), and totally kick-ass.

Non-Compliance is like the cooler dystopian version of an Anita Blake novel (there are no vampires but Quinn more than makes up for it). Unfortunately I have no idea when the next book comes out but Ms Daniels does have a web site which I fully intend to stalk -— ah,visit.
