meatheads on her ass and a necro tech blight be Necrotech is one of those titles that left me feeling particularly divisive KC Alexander included a great number of things that I enjoyed but there were also just enough missteps to disappointPerhaps my greatest problem with this book was going into it without the explicit understanding that this is the first book in a series with an overarching plot line Alexander presents a story where the lead character Riko is on a mission to discover what happened to her and her girlfriend during a period of several months that she cannot recall In the book s opening moments Riko wakes up in a lab in time to discover her cybernetically augmented girlfriend going haywire and turning into a savage monster on a bloody tear The mystery behind what these two women are doing in this lab and why they were even there in the first place becomes the crux of Riko s motivation Unfortunately by the time we reach the end of the book s 400 pages there s been zero resolution Riko does get moved into a new and interesting place which is a plus but the story itself lacks any sense of closure The characters and readers are left in largely the same place they found themselves at the outset with the central mystery unresolved We had some neat developments and a few interesting scenarios along the way but the trip itself ultimately felt largely pointless and this left me disappointedOn the bright side Riko is a cool heroine and I have a soft spot for foul mouthed temperamental tough women Riko is a particular type of mercenary known as a splatter specialist and with her gruff violent no prisoners attitude and big bionic arm heroines don t get much tougher Necrotech is a violent book with nearly non stop action At a certain point though the action does get to be a bit too much and a bit too tedious Alexander doesn t slow down enough to really allow her character much in the way of introspection or growth although there are some nice moments between Riko and the other characters Her flirtatious side carries a definite charm which made virtually any scene between her and a corporate secretary named Hope fun and engaging I could have gone for a few of those moments and Riko becomes much interesting when she s placed in situations far removed from her usual elementsMake no mistake Riko s usual elements are gritty and violent Alexander does a great job building the world her characters inhabit and I liked the concept of necrotech a computer virus that hijacks people s implants and turns them into the cyberpunk euivalent of a zombie uite a lot It s a scary gruesome and highly intriguing idea and one that I look forward to seeing the author develop in future booksWhile Necrotech was not the stand alone title I was hoping for and leaves

Street thug Riko has some serious issues memories wiped reputation tanked girlfriend turned into a tech fueled zombie And the only people who can help are the mercenaries who think she screwed them overIn an apathetic society devoid of ethics Review originally posted at my blog Silicon of the Internet Title Necrotech Author K C Alexander Genre Sci Fi Subgenre CyberpunkTranshumanist sci fiReview by SiliconIntro HOLY SHIT To say I enjoyed this book would be a massive understatement Do you like ass kicking foul mouthed shit starting heroines Fast paced plots that just don t stop the punches Human tech integration with ACTUAL CONSEUENCES and uniue dangersPublication date is September 1st for ebook UK September 6th for North AmericaThis is an honest review in exchange for an ARC Yes I really did like it THIS MUCH Plot Writing Style The plot of Necrotech is one wild rideThe major conflict in the story centers around Riko s girlfriend who is turned into a tech zombie necrotech following events that implicate Riko herself and which she cannot remember Complicating the issue is her girlfriend s brother who Riko must work with if she s to figure out what happened The complicated messy relationships between characters in this book is a real strength of the storytelling I really liked how Riko is clearly a person who loves is attracted to many people and how HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS is a central theme conflict for everyone Deciding who to trust who to betray who to save makes up a big part of how everyone interactsShit just keeps hitting the fan Everything Riko does to try and fix the situation has conseuences positive and negative The world of the story is tightly integrated and Alexander does a great job giving us essential information through action seuences and really keeping tension up the whole time This is a first person POV book so when Riko doesn t know something we don t either It s tough to make this work with an amnesia driven central conflict but I think it was well done Amnesia isn t my favorite plot device but for this story it worked If you see this XKCD and think I d like to read that You will enjoy Necrotech This is one of the fastest paced books I ve read which packs punches both physical and emotional Setting Humanity has become concentrated in cosmopolitan mega cities due to massive environmental degradation whee it s the future and depends on nanotechnology to surviveThe way tech and humanity is integrated in this novel is really uniue I liked the way that tech upgrades came with a significant danger and cost the possibility of being overwhelmed by your tech s needs and becoming a mere vessel for it to operate Very creepy I think the way that tech and environment meshed was well thought out and has interesting implications for example nanotech removes the possibility of cancer so people pulse themselves with straight radiation to disinfect the extremely dubious water coming out of their showers People can connect and talk to one another through tech based psionics wired into their brains but this comes at the cost of also being constantly assaulted with visual and aural advertisementsIt s a very dystopian post climate crisis environment and a very interesting use of universal nanotechnology Characters Yessssss Riko She s the bestRiko beats people up she swears loudly and freuently she screws up and pulls herself to her feet again she asks for help when she needs it and powers through when she doesn t She s a FORCE She s the kind of heroine I ve wanted to read for a long time but rarely actually GET Usually when you have protags like this they end up needing A MAN to come save them somehow Riko is self sufficient and would probably significantly fuck you up if you suggested that She needs help but she doesn t need to be savedI really enjoyed how flawed and human K C Alexander writes Riko She s not an emotionless machine She cares for people and for her reputation When she screws up and hurts someone else she feels guilt and regret Sometimes she screws up BECAUSE she feels so guilty it makes her rash and punch something she shouldn t Riko has fears and joys that are just so centrally REAL that she really comes alive off the page Plus I deeply enjoyed watching her beat her enemies up I would not want to get in this woman s way She s not the most conniving or intelligent character on the page and THAT S OKAY That s better than okay actually it shows how she has significant challenges to face that she genuinely needs others forThere s a great variety in characters presented in this book who are all very different yet need each other to survive and solve problems Diversity Riko has had a long and sometimes complicated love life and is bisexual LGBT rep is casual and inclusive in this novel and I really appreciated that We freuently see Riko make passes at both men and women throughout the story and there s absolutely no fanfare or big deal made out of who she s attracted to by any other characterRiko is an amputee who uses a prosthetic metal forearm and hand In a lot of SFF loss of a limb is often swiftly compensated by something that functions the same if not better However while Riko s arm definitely is advanced tech it s not the same as if she d never lost the arm It feeds data back to Riko in a series of statistics about whatever it s touching and she must interpret them rather than feeling as she does with her other hand It has drawbacks and strengths that play uniuely into how Riko navigates the world I felt this was excellently doneGenetics is messy in the world of Necrotech People can take pills containing genetic material from other human ethnic groups which augment their abilities and change their physical appearanceWhile this makes it complicated to evaluate racial diversity in the book I was very happy with the many characters of color we got to see and who play important roles This is definitely not one of those the future is white type scifi books I was happy with the diversity in this book Conclusion You need this damn book There s a longish excerpt posted here by BN if you want to see for yourself If you don t like swearing you won t like this book but you d also probably not be reading my blog SO READ THIS BOOK

    Some good old school cyberpunk with a suitably large dash of the punk We've got the usuals deckers fixers runners and the like all with suitably updated identities and new technology at their hands The old school still shows through though with a main character's chrome cyber arm and one of the deckers sorry projectors having the DNI ports in his neck and back This book takes the genre kisses it on the mouth and finishes with a swift kick i

    NECROTECH is probably the most entertaining novel I read in 2017 and is the best way I can finish off this year I say this as a huge cyberpunk fan and someone who has often felt the genre has suffered since The Matrix Basica
