The Lost Thorn
Additional Info for Reviewers & Staff
I'm an english-language writer who lives in a spanish-speaking country. Publishing locally was nigh impossible because of it, and it was only made worse by the fact that my country offers very little support to artists in general.
The book has been professionally edited, and several passes have been made. Both by editor Jean Racines, and by third party evaluation website "Indie Book Screener", which gave it a 4.5/5 .
Review selection has been put on hold site-wide. Expect an explanation from Amy before the end of August.

The Lost Thorn is a science fiction novel, with a strong and unstable female protagonist, that fuses the ideas of cyberpunk with dashes of urban fantasy. It’s a heart pounding adventure told from the perspective of a highly chaotic girl who has lost everything she held dear, leaving her with nothing but a powerful drug as a means to cope with the inescapable pain.
Cyberpunk meets psychological thriller. The Lost Thorn deals not only with mega-corporate thugs and gang politics, but it also follows Samantha’s spiral and constant clash with the demons of addiction and madness.
The novel is a grim and depressing social critique that often becomes a foil for the protagonist, whose voice we hear guiding us through her story. She is spunky, easygoing, careless, and terrible at making puns. This is an adventure of contrasts from beginning to end, one that will leave you hanging and asking for more!
A thrilling cyberpunk story set in a latin american capital, with a strong female lead and dashes of urban fantasy. A story of personal struggle against society and against the ghosts of our own. A tale of contrasts from beginning to end.
