Staff Reviews

"Wong shows us a future that is entirely too plausible while exploring the moral problems of wealth and the power that comes with it. Zoey Ash is caught between her poor upbringing, the vast riches her father left for her, and the violent gangs that are hunting her for a secret she doesn't know she possesses."

— From Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits by David Wong


A Winner of the 2016 Alex Awards

Nightmarish villains with superhuman enhancements.

An all-seeing social network that tracks your every move.

Mysterious, smooth-talking power players who lurk behind the scenes.

A young woman from the trailer park.

And her very smelly cat.

Together, they will decide the future of mankind.

Get ready for a world in which anyone can have the powers of a god or the fame of a pop star, in which human achievement soars to new heights while its depravity plunges to the blackest depths. A world in which at least one cat smells like a seafood shop's dumpster on a hot summer day.

This is the world in which Zoey Ashe finds herself, navigating a futuristic city in which one can find elements of the fantastic, nightmarish and ridiculous on any street corner. Her only trusted advisor is the aforementioned cat, but even in the future, cats cannot give advice. At least not any that you'd want to follow.

Will Zoey figure it all out in time? Or maybe the better question is, will you? After all, the future is coming sooner than you think.
