The city of iRemember shimmers in the desert haze, watched over by the Bureau, a government
agency that maintains control through memory surveillance and little pink pills made from the
narcotic plant Tranquelle.
It looks like an oasis under its geodesic dome, but the city is under siege. ‘Off-Gridder’ insurgents are
fighting to be forgotten.
Bureau Inspector Icara Swansong is on a mission to neutralise the threat. Her investigation leads her
into iRemember’s secret underbelly, where she finds herself a fugitive from the very system she had
vowed to protect. She has to learn new rules: trust no one. Behind every purple Tranquelle stalk lurk
A sci-fi noir with a psychedelic twist, iRemember explores the power the past holds over us and the
fragility of everything: what is, what once was, and what will be.
For a limited time, iRemember will be available for only 99p.

This is not an easy book for review and it’s not for any bad reasons but instead it’s because of how unique this book is.
The characters were very well developed and while it wasn’t always for me I found the writing to be very well done. There is so many great writers out there it is hard to really pick out ones that are standouts. This book was a stand out book due to its unique nature.
I look forward to more from this author.
