Ever since they gave her a new cyborg body and a steady stream of murderous work, she’s known the rules. Keep your head down, do your job, don’t get involved.
Then they sent her to assassinate a child.
Instead, she took him out of the City and into the Waste. Of course they’ll be coming for her, and for the strange, quiet, thirsty boy she’s rescued. Because he’s not just a child — he’s a profitable experiment. Bounty hunters. Fellow cyborgs. Cannibals. Monsters. They’re all after him. All she has on her side is an almost-invulnerable body, a lifetime’s worth of stubbornness, and the willingness to kill whoever she has to.
It’s going to have to be enough.
Mucho thanks are due to Fireside’s team of fabulous people, especially Brian White and Pablo Defendini. And now my cyborg-assassin-Western is out in the world, rolling around and racking up a body count. See if you can spot the names of original Patreon backers in the book! Also, I’ve just found out that even a release day for a re-edited serial makes my stomach knot itself up with nervousness. Something about a paperback makes it seem all too real.
If you read the serial and enjoyed it, you could do both me and Fireside a huge favor by leaving some stars or a review on the platform of your choice. We’d both muchly appreciate it.
And now I’m going to finish my coffee and see if my running togs are dry yet. A good hard half-hour at full speed will either settle my stomach or empty it to the point that it has nothing left to complain of.
Over and out.
