"The coolest science fiction I've read in years - if cyberpunk dystopian SF is your jam, I highly recommend this amazing book." - Ellie Marney, author of Every Breath "I absolutely loved the world building in this book. Looking forward to the next book in the series." "What first hooked me was the world and all the intriguing tech stuff...but what made it so hard to put the book down was the characters...Fleshers' two main characters, Dez and Bo, became real people in my mind, with real struggles, hopes, dreams ." Five star reviews on Goodreads

Reviews

"Fleshers holds a mirror to current societal disparities and ugly elitism, not unlike young adult novels The Hunger Games and Divergent...A book that draws readers through an action-packed, multi-layered narrative and will leave them with the desire to learn more about the complex and unusual characters." - Books]Publishing
