Genre: sci fi / cyberpunk
Rating: 3.5 stars – an interesting world with a noir feel
Cassie is a PI, there’s a lady in trouble, it’s a match made in cyberpunk heaven. One part noir, one part tech, throw in a bit of furry and kink and you have Addict.
The writing was very smooth and it was an easy read. Cassie was an interesting character, and I really loved the tech world. I found the plot hard to follow in places, and the villains in some cases a bit too ‘mustachio-twirling’, but it was all in good fun. Unfortunately the long bouts of dialogue and confusing ‘who done its’ made it difficult for me to really delve into the narrative. My favorite parts were where we were learning about the world (panther suit FTW), or the last two chapters, where we get to see some personal growth of Cassie. I would have loved more about the world in general, especially the body modification parts, but Cassie did a good job of carrying the narrative and being a sympathetic character.
The action scenes were well written, the blocking spot on, and the dialogue seldom felt stilted. Fans of light dystopian, cyberpunk, and urban sci fi I think would really enjoy this book.
