My latest series, Drone Rider, is action cyberpunk, cyborg vs. AI.
Across the devastated landscape of 22nd century America, Betta Graham herds climate migrants from Chicago's Northern League dome. She becomes a cyborg when she uncovers a massive plot for monster AI to destroy Earth's ruling domes. And she learns her boyfriend Valentin is the same sort of sentient war AI.
As the AI Wars begin, Betta is uniquely vulnerable – and potent – against humanity's horrific new foe.
Come for the laser-eyed attack bunnies! And stay for nonstop action and compelling characters in a gritty post-apocalyptic world.
In my overall future history:
If you've read Thrive Earth Return, you'll recognize sentient critters and the legacy of Earth's AI Wars, including Chicago. This is that story.
If you've read Feral Recruit, this is the future of the shadowy Northern League Ava Panic glimpsed in its early days.
