Into Neon is a popcorn movie in book form. It features a likable hero, interesting side characters, and a plot that makes you turn pages. All of this imbedded into a colorful, neon, cyberpunk world, filled with righteous rebels, evil corporations, biker gangs, and lots of rain - everything you'd expect from the genre!
We follow the main character, Moss, who lives a boring life as an engineer in the sterile world of a corporation. Until one day, a pink-haired girl stumbles into his ...more
If you’re looking for hard, fact-driven sci-fi, this probably isn’t the book for you. But if you want a fun, entertaining story to kill a few hours with, you won’t be disappointed!
I was especially appreciative of the inclusivity of the characters.
The writing isn’t complex. It reads a bit like YA but with some more adult themes, and the character development at the end felt a bit rushed. But fo ...more
I guess I’m stuck between 3.5 and 4 star rating because I like the world a lot but the protagonist seems to get lost in the grit of the world and supporting characters. The world building was 💯 - I knew the environment and the technology. Where I lost traction was with Moss. He has considerable growth from beginning to end but I feel like he was overshadowed by Burn and Ynna. Maybe I have a bias because I loved Ynna’s story: Deadly In Pink.
It should be also sa ...more
I love how the author has imbued every element of the story with cyberpunk (technology in particular), making for a very immersive read.

Cyberpunk popcorn goodness. This ain't Bladerunner, and that's good. Prototypical cyberpunk settings and tropes, but the characters are fun and the story is well-told. The Kindle version is only 263 pages, which is great. A fast read. The story itself is severely filmable, and would be a great replacement for another notch in an existing franchise. I purchased all four books at once, but this book could stand on its own if necessary.
If you're swallowed up in the Cyberpunk 2077 h ...more
This book showed a number of ways to describe characters and did it well for the key players. The protagonist was well conceived and navigated through the story well. The description of the environment was vague and seemed to leave it to the screenplay writer's whimsy. The good versus evil portion pitted the underdog with the cast corporations. That helped to keep momentum in the reading. That, too could have used some expansion, potential for political or philosophical ...more
For a debut novel it is impressive though.
a great read from start to finish. Eases into the world of the main character and hooked me with the desire to learn more about this place, it's history, and what may come. If you're new to cyberpunk this is a great place to start! ...more
This book is a good start to the series. It was a quick read with familiar sci-fi tropes arranged in an interesting manner. It felt a little YA to me, but that could just be my take.
I found it to be an actual good read on Kindle Unlimited. I am going to download the second book now.
