My love for post-apocalyptic sci-fi is unquenchable, and am always adding more novels to my reading list. This is my latest addition and can’t believe I hadn’t been recommended it before! The story is tense and captivating, keeping you glued to the book. I was able to relate with most of characters and their maturity during the storyline. Absolutely adventurous. – Amazon Review
A troubled, twenty-something, female genius with a sexual kink tries to solve a mystery and discovers a tech that could destroy humanity.
Cassie is an artist celebrated across the two planets. She was born into a world that has seen climate catastrophe, unstable governments, giant quantum computers, and routine space travel. From that crucible of change, a new culture with the delicacy of a spider web has risen.
Cassie’s tech genius mother, Ada, was responsible for creating much of that new balance. She built the software needed to connect people at a level primitive 21st century social networks could only fantasize about. When Cassie is 17, Ada disappears, and Cassie drowns herself in a world of brilliant artistic projects and sexual adventure.
As a twenty-something, Cassie is driven to find out what happened to her mother. As she pokes at the mystery, she disturbs the delicate web that holds together humanity. Enemies emerge from the shadows to twist her mind at every turn.
She is faced with a choice: let it go or risk humanity itself!
