"Fans of the Cyberpunk 2077 video game will enjoy a deeper dive into this high-technology and low-trust world."—Booklist
"An amazing and emotional book that shows readers a non-ideal dystopian future. Rafał Kosik perfectly balanced between writing a mystery with plenty of twists and turns, and smuggling a message about current issues. Of course, as a book set in the Cyberpunk 2077 world itself, this is a great story that expands that world even further."—Cosmic Circus
