Editor reviews

In the very near future, multinational corporations have made a mess of the world. Luckily, Thomasina Lyle, our investigative journalist heroine, works to expose the scary truth. Talented YA performer Emma Galvin is at it again. Her bright and cheerful voice brings energy to this cyberpunk audiobook. Evil corporations (and Gregory Frost's occasional awkward word choices) are no match for this talent. Fans of what Frost calls "high weird" and "disturbing" but not the "sort that splatters" will appreciate this fantasy thriller.

Summary

Guerrilla activist and rebel journalist Thomasina Lyell discovers a destructive, mind-shattering power that threatens the future of humankind and will stop at nothing to reveal it to the world.

Awful reading

I could not listen to more than one hour of that awful reading. Too staccato, with pauses between words in sentences. This is the worst reader I’ve heard in my growing library of audible books.

I can’t comment on the story because I never got into it.
