Overview

Street thug Riko has some serious issues—memories wiped, reputation tanked, girlfriend turned into a tech-fueled zombie. And the only people who can help are the mercenaries who think she screwed them over.

In an apathetic society devoid of ethics or regulation, where fusing tech and flesh can mean a killing edge or a killer conversion, a massive conspiracy is unfolding that will alter the course of the human condition forever. With corporate meatheads on her ass and a necro-tech blight between her and salvation, Riko is going to have to fight meaner, work smarter, and push harder than she’s ever had to. And that’s just to make it through the day.

Can't I just rate the book?

Let me tell you what, I was not expecting this at all. I picked it up on a whim because I needed to trade out a mis-published book. It was a choppy read the first few chapters. I kept putting it down, picking it up again, trying to work through the beginning, mainly because I'm a wuss when it comes to the main character toting the line between death and being in a lot of pain because of it. Riko is always fighting something and always getting hurt, and Alexander conveys that really, REALLY well. It was actually a really fast read, for being so big. I managed it in chunks between classes. Thirty minute increments here and there. There's action, zombies, military-esque, biting sarcasm and crude humor. Riko is snappy and guarded, but I found her enjoyable in the best ways. The last 140 or so pages hooked me. I couldn't set the thing down. Since it has a sequel, the ending does its job in priming me for it. I can't wait to read the next one. One thing, though, I was not entirely fixed on the whole vernacular of the story. Like who exactly did what... and why. Not the characters, but the job titles from linker to projectors, then saints, but I understood SINless pretty well. It was just a lot to go through, even though Alexander tried to spread it out evenly. Probably just me. I wasn't putting in the work to figure it out; I'm a skimmer at the worst possible times. Anyway, pick it up if you don't mind some ruthless sarcasm and some bloodshed.

Disjointed. Choppy. Doesn't have a clear idea of where it wants to go, and does not get there by the end. Disappointing.

Action packed cyberpunk and zombie style horror. This story really does take off rather quickly with very few breaks. I have read Shadowrun fiction, Eclipse Phase short stories and just good old regular cyberpunk stuff with gritty heroes and heroines but nothing nearly as gritty as this. Riko, our heroine, is absolutely tough as nails and very, very pissed. Despite beginning her day in the worst possible way she still manages to scrape together some gear, some mercs and some intel just so she can try to figure out what happened to her over the past 3 or 4 months. It sets up a good gritty world with crooked corporations and even more crooked street people and the tech zombie plot makes for some good horrific moments. If you like some really rough and tumble cyberpunk with fights aplenty and zombie horror to boot then this one is for you. I almost can't believe the author started in romance novels, it is that good.
