In 2503 at an old world pub in the Las Vegas Coastal Airfield, smuggler Angel Torrence goes from elation to shock rather quickly. Felinean Avengers, seeking retaliation for what she did to the crime boss' son, blow up her ship the Falcon. Desperate to escape, she steals the idle Icarus. On board the vessel is scientist healer Yanur Snellen who is on two quests. He must find a way to stop the alien menace called the Harvesters and must rescue the body of his friend Colonel Nicole Ramanoff, whose essence he has loaded into the ship's computer.

From the computer, Nicole orders Angel to do his bidding or else. As they argue voice to body over supremacy in this odd relationship both begins to fall in love and soon she makes his cause hers. However, both know the future is bleak between a machine harboring the brain and soul of a man and a full blooded woman with needs and desires making it even more imperative to rescue his body from the Avengers. Then there is the matter of saving humanity before the Harvesters reap through mankind.

This science fiction romance is a powerful futuristic tale that sub-genre fans and those who appreciate a delightful speculative fiction story will enjoy. The story line is loaded with action that enables the audience to believe five centuries plus from now is already her. However, the key is the cast as Popp makes the growing love between a disembodied male and a hyperactive female so genuine. TOO CLOSE TO THE SUN is a superb story that will gain new fans for Ms. Popp.
