ALIYAH TSABO-DAWSON: The world's most dangerous eight-year-old girl. Burned by a terrorist's magic, gifted strange powers beyond measure. She's furious that she has to hide her abilities from her friends, her teachers, even her mother - and her temper tantrums can kill. PAUL TSABO: Bureaucromancer. Magical drug-dealer. Desperate father. He's gone toe-to-toe with the government's conscription squads of brain-burned Unimancers, and he'll lie to anyone to keep Aliyah out of their hands - whether Aliyah likes it or not. THE KING OF NEW YORK: The mysterious power player hell-bent on capturing the two of them. A man packing a private army of illegal 'mancers. Paul's family is the key to keep the King's crumbling empire afloat. But offering them paradise is the catalyst that inflames Aliyah's deadly rebellious streak...

"The Flux is the best kind of sequel: bigger, deeper, scarier, funner. The emotional journey it takes the reader on is just as thrilling as the jaw-dropping wonders of videogamemancy and bureaucramancy. With the 'Mancer series, Ferrett Steinmetz has achieved something rare in contemporary fantasy: a world that feels both truer and more magical than our own."- Ken Liu, winner of the Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Awards and author of The Grace of Kings and The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories. PRAISE FOR FLEX: "Flex is a real gem - sharp, weird, and wildly innovative. It zigs when you think it'll zag, then tricks you into screaming when you're ready to laugh out loud. So drop everything and settle in for the night - because once you open this one, you're not going anywhere." - Cherie Priest; "Do you like magic? Do you like drugs? Donut-based psychological theories? Video games? Do you like PAPERWORK!? Read this book!" - Ann Leckie, author of Ancillary Justice and winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Arthur C. Clarke Awards; "Amazing. I have literally never read a book like this. Read this NOW, if only to be forced to turn the page wondering what the hell Steinmetz is going to come up with next." - Mur Lafferty, Campbell award-winning "Best New Writer 2013" and author of The Shambling Guide to New York
