Neuromancer for a non-binary age: an action-packed techno-thriller with a side of magical realism.

Everything's For Hire. Even Magic.

If you need something done, Cloke’s one of the best; a mercenary with some unusual talents and an attitude to match. But when she’s hired by a virtual construct to destroy the other copies of himself, and the down payment is a new magical skill, she knows this job is going to be a league harder than anything she’s ever done.

“A full-throttle magical cyberpunk superhero thriller.” – Peter McLean
