Summary
In South Africa, the future looks promising. Personal robots are making life easier for the working class. The government is harnessing renewable energy to provide infrastructure for the poor. And in the bustling coastal town of Port Elizabeth, the economy is booming thanks to the genetic engineering industry which has found a welcome home there. Yesthe days to come are looking very good for South Africans. That is, if they can survive the present challenges: A new hallucinogenic drug sweeping the country . . .An emerging AI uprising . . .And an ancient demigoddess hellbent on regaining her former status by preying on the blood and sweat (but mostly blood) of every human she encounters.Its up to a young Zulu girl powerful enough to destroy her entire township, a queer teen plagued with the ability to control minds, a pop diva with serious daddy issues, and a politician with even more serious mommy issues to band together to ensure theres a future left to worry about.Fun and fantastic, Nicky Drayden takes her brilliance as a short story writer and weaves together an elaborate tale that will capture your heart . . . even as one particular demigoddess threatens to rip it out

Summary
A new street drug with the ability to awaken humanity's latent supernatural powers transforms the residents of 2064 Port Elizabeth, South Africa -- especially Irish-Xhosa teen Muzi, Zulu woman Nomvula, and fallen demigoddess Sydney. Fans of Lauren Beukes' Zoo City will enjoy spending time in a gritty futuristic South Africa in which artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, and high-tech hallucinogens are commonplace. -- Description by Gillian Speace
