I'll take a beer. 🍺 Thank you.
I'm in the early stages of the first draft of my first novel, working title 'The Perfection Engine'.
Warning: blurb may change at any moment, not always for the better.
Twelve years ago, an unexplained attack on her home killed Membra’s father and left her with devastating, life-changing injuries.
Once one of the most expert thieves in the city-state of Draffe, now she scrapes a living as a researcher and information miner, thieving when she can. But to others' eyes she seems to have rebuilt her life. Inwardly, though, she is incomplete and broken, haunted by regret and guilt, and searching for a wholeness that can never be hers again.
While on a clandestine and strangely well-paid job, Membra finds a mysterious artefact from her past, something she never thought to see again. The discovery reawakens old ghosts and a dangerous adversary, the very one responsible for tearing Membra’s life apart so long ago. Suddenly both the hunter and the hunted, Membra enters a reluctant partnership with Custos, a war-weary ex-mercenary with his own hidden connection to her predicament.
Together, the unlikely couple set out on a journey of revelation and revenge that will lead Membra to a momentous choice, one that will affect not just her but everything that she has ever known. Should she sacrifice who she is now for the chance to regain who she once was?
To win the consummation that she yearns for, Membra must learn to trust her own unique strengths, even when they come from what she sees as flaws and imperfections. And, even then, what she wants may not be what she needs.
And you? 🙂
