"Suspenseful, unsettling, and thoroughly engrossing"

The Prairies Book Review


"Cyberpunk shock meets infinite romantic regret in this dark, engrossing, and ultimately doleful SF tale"

Kirkus Review


One day in Pittsburgh, Paddy Riordan died...his body did, anyway. His digitalized mind wakes up in a world where nothing is what it seems, his memory fractured. When a stranger calling himself the Varyag appears with a dire warning, Paddy must quickly piece together his broken past to save his mind and the woman he still loves, all while eluding masked assassins, cutting-edge artificial intelligence, and the sinister sorceress Rusalka.

But he'll find no enemy so cruel as the shadow of the past. What he discovers hidden in those memories might condemn him to a fate even worse than death.
