From Book Pipeline: “Such a rich, immersive experience. The story digs in its feet from the first chapter and pushes the reader through a futuristic backdrop devoid of the tropes we see far too often. Milo has imagined a remarkably vivid neo-noir type world built upon a grounded sense of the future without sacrificing the expectations of the genre. Intentional or not, what’s most impressive is the malleability of the story: as a film, as a mini-series, or potentially a multiple-season TV show, given the episodic potential of the premise. Definitely an emerging sci-fi writing talent worth keeping an eye on.”
