In 2071 Lona has two problems.

The ancient Celtic tales she's translating are coming to life...

...and the Faith Police are framing her for murder.

But how much of it is real?

As Lona and her band of misfits struggle to find the killer and solve the mystery, life begins to unravel. Virtual reality games invade their world; ghostly stories begin to stalk them. To save her life, Lona is forced to confront her troubled past and re-write her own story. So are her friends.

Can they solve the secret of the tales and restore their world to safety?

Or will they be lost forever in a nightmare?

Synthetic weaves a captivating blend of cyberpunk and folklore, laced with dazzling dark humour.

(CAUTION: Written and set in the UK, this book uses British spelling and terminology. May contain traces of tea and irony.)


Fans of The Handmaids Tale or William Gibson's Agency will revel in this near-future fantasy world; anyone who enjoys books by Douglas Adams, Philip K.Dick or Jasper Fforde will love the quirky humour; and anyone who misses Game of Thrones will adore the android wolf and digital dragons.
