    Pherone is a fast-paced blending of the noir and spy genres. It weaves a dark story of a rogue operative named Eve, who has no memory of her missions or why she takes them. After waking in a hotel room covered with someone elses blood, Eve goes in search of answers, even as shes hunted by both the police and her own employers. Read Full Review

    Kalvachev and his co-writers immerse the main character in mystery, in confusion, in intrigue. The problem is that at first, it makes the storytelling seem almost random. Initially, the reader is led to believe Eve has some sort of multiple-personality disorder, but the answer is simpler yet more convoluted than that at the same time. The plot comes into focus in the latter part of the book, almost too clearly all at once. One can almost hear the creators whispering into your year, "See? This is what's been really going on the whole time." I don't mind some mystery. In fact, I thoroughly enjoy it. But there's so much effort expanded on keeping the reader in the dark that it hardly seems as though there's much plot in the first place. Still, I have to admit that the ballsy, over-the-top, unrelenting noir atmosphere is tremendously fun. The blackness of the visuals and, to be honest, the cheesiness of the intrigue are enticing.
