Publisher's Summary

Crossover is the first novel in a series which follows the adventures of Cassandra Kresnov, an artificial person, or android, created by the League, one side of an interstellar war against the more powerful, conservative Federation. Cassandra is an experimental design - more intelligent, more creative, and far more dangerous than any that have preceded her. But with her intellect come questions, and a moral awakening. She deserts the League and heads incognito into the space of her former enemy, the Federation, in search of a new life.
Her chosen world is Callay, and its enormous, decadent capital metropolis of Tanusha, where the concerns of the war are literally and figuratively so many light years away. But the war between the League and the Federation was ideological as much as political, with much of that ideological dispute regarding the very existence of artificial sentience and the rules that govern its creation. Cassandra discovers that even in Tanusha, the powerful entities of this bloody conflict have wound their tentacles. Many in the League and the Federation have cause to want her dead, and Cassandra?s history, inevitably, catches up with her. Cassandra finds herself at the mercy of a society whose values preclude her own right even to exist. But her presence in Tanusha reveals other fault lines, and when Federal agents attempt to assassinate the Callayan president, she finds herself thrust into the service of her former enemies, using her lethal skills to attempt to protect her former enemies from forces beyond their ability to control.
As she struggles for her place and survival in a new world, Cassandra must forge new friendships with old enemies, while attempting to confront the most disturbing and deadly realities of her own existence.

Crossover: Cassandra Kresnov

A good tale. Somewhat let down by the narration, which is in a rather harried 'american' style and the somewhat implausible attribution of 'old earth' regional accents to the characters. But still perfectly enjoyable overall.

sehr flache Story keine Besonderheiten

ich liebe Sci-Fi Story aber die Handlung hat mich null gepackt , die Protagonisten war zwar gut erklärt aber über super Killer Sex Android ist es nicht hinaus gekommen; die beschriebene Welt ist auch sehr monoton und schlicht beschrieben, aber ich hätte erwartet das dieses Buch mich auf die Folge Bücher vorbereitet und mir Spannung für das nächste aufbaut aber nix
