SHE'S ONE HUMAN IN AN INFINITE CITY-AND HE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL HE POSSESSES HER.It should have been an easy job-deliver the ID chip, get paid, and get out. But when Drakkal sees a beautiful human in his client's private zoo and instantly recognizes her as his mate, the situation gets complicated. The motto he's long lived by-don't be stupid-is cast aside as the beast in him demands he take this female and make her his no matter what he must do. And when she runs from him, the hunt is on.After being impregnated by her dirtbag ex-boyfriend, abducted, and sold to be a breeder in a rich alien's basement menagerie, Shay has to admit things aren't looking great. But she's determined to give her unborn child a decent life. Her first opportunity appears in the form of a gruff but insanely attractive azhera who forces Shay's owner to sell her to him. Refusing to trade one alien master for another, she escapes him at her first chance. Yet Shay can't forget the intense azhera and his heated stare-and soon realizes that he's not going to forget her, either.But Shay's former owner also remembers, and he's determined to retrieve his prized possession-and have his revenge on the azhera who took her.

A LOCUS AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST FIRST NOVEL! The Guardian's Pick for Best Science Fiction Book of the Year! A timely and uncanny portrait of a world in the wake of fake news, diminished privacy, and a total shutdown of the Internet BEFORE: In Bristol’s center lies the Croft, a digital no-man’s-land cut off from the surveillance, Big Data dependence, and corporate-sponsored, globally hegemonic aspirations that have overrun the rest of the world. Ten years in, it’s become a center of creative counterculture. But it’s fraying at the edges, radicalizing from inside. How will it fare when its chief architect, Rushdi Mannan, takes off to meet his boyfriend in New York City—now the apotheosis of the new techno-utopian global metropolis? AFTER: An act of anonymous cyberterrorism has permanently switched off the Internet. Global trade, travel, and communication have collapsed. The luxuries that characterized modern life are scarce. In the Croft, Mary—who has visions of people presumed dead—is sought out by grieving families seeking connections to lost ones. But does Mary have a gift or is she just hustling to stay alive? Like Grids, who runs the Croft’s black market like personal turf. Or like Tyrone, who hoards music (culled from cassettes, the only medium to survive the crash) and tattered sneakers like treasure. The world of Infinite Detail is a small step shy of our own: utterly dependent on technology, constantly brokering autonomy and privacy for comfort and convenience. With Infinite Detail, Tim Maughan makes the hitherto-unimaginable come true: the End of the Internet, the End of the World as We Know It.
