Blurb:
Riven has fought for a hard-won peace in her world, and has come to shaky terms with who and what she isโ€”a human with cyborg DNA. Now that the rightful ruler of Neospes has been reinstated, Riven is on the hunt for her father in the Otherworld to bring him to justice for his crimes against her people.

But when she receives an unwelcome visit from two former allies, she knows that trouble is brewing once again in Neospes. The army has been decimated and there are precious few left to fight this mysterious new threat.

To muster a first line of defense, her people need help from the one person Riven loathes mostโ€”her father. But what he wants in return is her complete surrender.

And now Riven must choose: save Neospes or save herself.

Excerpt:
The flare of blue fire is blinding. Then again, itโ€™s gone so quickly that even if you were staring right at me, youโ€™d blink and itโ€™d vanish. The emissions from the process of eversionโ€”shifting between universesโ€”are unavoidable. However, I try to be careful, everting in concealed areas away from people, and away from the eyes of the Faction and the Guardians. Theyโ€™re always watching for those who break the lawโ€”those who donโ€™t
remain where they belong.
Me, more so than ever.
I belong in Neospes, a domed city in a parallel dimension to the Otherworld. But Iโ€™m here in pursuit of a man who everted over a year ago. A man who nearly destroyed my world in his quest for power. A man so consumed with retaliation that to let him loose in either world would be a colossal mistake.
And so I hunt him. Iโ€™ve been hunting himโ€”across thirty states and always a step or two behind. Heโ€™s clever, brilliant, and a master strategist.
After all, heโ€™s my father. And heโ€™s my creator.
I may look like an ordinary girl, but Iโ€™m far from one. Itโ€™s something Iโ€™m still coming to terms with, ever since I learned the truth. I am a product of genetic experimentation and advanced robotics. I am the girl with nanoplasm for bloodโ€”the perfect combination of human and machine, an aberration of natureโ€”and yet, its greatest creation. I am the only one of my kind.
My name is Riven.
And I am a killer.
