A new dystopian series; a darkly luminous cityscape, a gritty and uncompromising hero in a world of Stalinesque intrigue, a young fighter who is willing to pay the terrible cost of defiance.

Every character I’ve met and known in city streets has ended up in this book; my lead character gets thrown into the dystopian slum-world and moves from being a child of privilege to a particularly dirty fighter. It’s a future world in which exist both kerosene lamps (for the billions of poor) and secret police gliding by in ion thrusters, the wealthy with boxy cell phones and fifty gallons of water a day; strange contrasts.
The people of the barrios are not hopeless churls with bad teeth but clever, amusing, strong. They have their own culture and their own music and street singers gather at the intersections. It’s a lively, vital, colorful world where the people find not only laughter but love.
Join me in this future planet of hot and chaotic streets, sellers and buyers, messenger girls on skateboards, theft and loyalty. The main characters are both heroic and occasionally inept but never dull; Alan, Nadia and Bude. O the places you’ll go, the freights you’ll hop, the weapons you’ll steal, and the mysterious radio voice you will hear coming from 22,000 miles overhead with secret messages just for you.
