This book would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of my wife, Cristina, who was my first reader and critic.

Thanks to my friend, Nicholas Rossman, who encouraged me to put my ideas on paper.

Also thanks to my sister, Anca Elena Cristea, who helped me translate and edit this book in Romanian.

Finally, thanks to my parents, Niculae and Niculina Ionita, who always encouraged me to read and dream.

  1. Ideea cartii mi se pare incredibila si desi e o ficțiune totul pare foarte real si plauzibil in foarte multe dintre momentele actiunii. Am fost atat de captivata de poveste incat nu m-am putut desprinde de carte pana nu am terminat-o si apoi mi-a parut rau ca s-a terminat! Astept cu nerăbdare sa vad ce se mai intampla!!!! Cand e gata volumul al doilea?
