    Anax thinks she knows her history. She'd better. She's sat facing three Examiners and her gruelling four-hour examination has just begun. After the Great War in 2077, her island Republic emerged from a ruined world. Its citizens were safe - but never free. They lived in complete isolation from the outside. Until one man rescued a girl from the sea, and shook the very foundations on which the Republic was built. It was a time where ancient philosophical questions had collided dramatically with the march of technology.

    Kelly says: "OUTSTANDING!!"
    "Both intriguing and tedious, with a big finish!"
    Overall

    The story of Anax and her examination started off promising and the tension was palpable. The plot was interesting if not thrilling, but I found myself losing interest during the second hour. During the third hour, when one would think the plot would develop and heighten one's interest, I almost gave up after enduring dreary, if earnest, philosophical ranting delivered in a monotonous drone; I did, in fact, skip over some sections. The stunning ending was what saved me from feeling that I had wasted my time and caused me to reflect that perhaps there was a good reason for the ranting!

    Cambridge is home to 18,000 students, 1,500 academics and one serial killer.... For the students of Ariel College, a siege mentality has developed following weeks of media interest in 'the Cambridge Butcher'. University life has become not about surviving their exams, but simply about surviving. And forensic psychiatrist Matthew Denison is sure that his traumatised patient has the killer's identity locked in her memory.

    Overall

    Although a bit confusing at times, jumping backward and forward in time did add to this story of a group of students attending the same college at Cambridge University who are seemingly targeted by a serial murderer. And as if this wasn't enough mental whiplash, my certainty as to the identity of the potential killer changed almost by the minute. The ending was a bit weak, but by that time I was ready for a bit of a rest anyway.
