I've known about the pen and paper game and SNES games that take place in this world and thought I would give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. The story and characters are engaging. If you are into world-building, this story has it. It's even better if you know a little bit about the lure of the big companies, why they employ Independent contractors (Shadowrunners) to do thier dirty work, and why magic returned to the world.

If you've ever read/listened to Altered Carbon, this book has a very similar feel to it.

If stories about magic, futuristic technology, have a Bladerunner vibe or paint a picture of a dystopian future are your thing, definitely try this one out. I hope more of them are forthcoming. Highest recommendation.

I 'd never listened to anything the author had written before, but found the blurb interesting. It sounded like storage wars with mages. I was not disappointed. She had great world building and the town and backstory felt alive. The romantic interest is pretty standard, but they typically are. I'm interested to listen to her next one.
