Publisher's Summary

In a future world ruled by warring mega-corporations, cyborg Nephilim believed she was fighting a righteous cause.

As a powerful, genetically and cybernetically enhanced elite soldier, her brutal and violent life is not truly her own - until one day, a simple glitch separates her from the grid.

For the first time in her young life, she is free...and she has doubts. Doubts that bury deeper into her psyche when she meets Jake, a mysterious, 100 percent bio-human.

He opens her neon-blue eyes to the lies she had been exposed to all her life. Questioning everything she has ever known, Nephilim resolves to take a stand. To hold on to this freedom, she has miraculously discovered. But can one person, no matter how strong, beat an all-powerful system of oppression? Soon, Nephilim finds herself hunted by her own people in a deadly game of survival....

For fans of Blade Runner, Ghost in the Shell, and Altered Carbon!

Well told Cyberpunk story!

This is one of the first audiobooks I’ve listened to as of recently and I very much enjoyed it!

I already read this story myself but decided a fun re-read would be listening to it! It was indeed fun! Great story with amazing characters well told by both author and narrator here.

If you haven’t read this you’re in for a treat! The Narrator does a fantastic job getting each characters’ personalities down. He does an exceptional job with Metatron and Finwick! The moments with Jake and Nephilim stood out as well!

Very happy this was a first on audible for me! Looking forward to listening to the sequel as well! Loved this! Needed the smiles and laughs this gave me this week for sure! Give it a listen If you loved this story or anything Cyberpunk!

Great for cyberpunk fans!

If you’re a fan of cyberpunk, this is a great read or listen for you! A very good story with a few twists along the way, an awesome female lead, characters you will love and characters you will hate, and an excellent political backstory. The politics help drive the plot without making much of an appearance at all, so if you’re worried that stuff will bog down the story, don’t be. Anna did a great job of keeping the story rolling at high speeds with plenty of action and mystery.

Sean does a very good job on the narration for this book. My only issue....and this is a VERY small issue....is that I think there were a handful of moments where he put an inflection on certain parts that I’m not sure the writer intended. Like I said, it’s a VERY small issue and wasn’t off-putting at all really.


Brief note: if language, sexual content, or brief descriptions of gore/torture are a problem for you, be careful with this one. It’s definitely not the worst book I’ve ever listened to on any of these fronts, but it isn’t what I’d call a ‘clean read.’ Just a little heads up for those who have an aversion to mature content.

The next step of cyberpunk evolution

Anna Mocikat's cyberpunk thriller "Behind Blue Eyes" packs a hard-boiled, neon-tinted punch to the gut. It's got plenty of depth but doesn't skimp on action and science fiction bad-assery. It's unpredictable, philosophical and somehow manages to reflect a modern fear of societal breakdown, which makes it all the more unsettling at times.

Like with all the best novels, I simply didn't want it to end, and Mocikat has granted our wish and given us a sequel! Hopefully Audible will feature part two very soon, I need to know where things go from here!!

Oh, and the narrator, Sean Duregger, does a phenomenal job bringing Mocikat's characters to living, breathing life. This audiobook clocks in at over 13 hours, but I barely noticed, I was that engrossed in the story and Duregger's telling of it!

So what's the moral of this noir-ish story? Buy this audiobook and get sucked into a world of killer cyborgs, endless cityscapes and totalitarian governments.

A modern cyberpunk classic comes to life.

Having read the book previously, listening to the audio version brought a whole new experience to the story. The narrator brings individual characterisation to each player in Mocikat's already fantastic tale of cyberpunk thrills and breathes life into the pace and drama! A great listen from start to finish, and a credit well spent!
