The city of Neo Songdo is a Russian nesting doll of realities - augmented and virtual spaces anchored in the weight of the real. The smart city is designed to be read by machine vision while people see only the augmented facade of the corporate ideal. At night the stars are obscured by an intergalactic virtual war being waged by millions of players, while on the streets below people are forced to beg, steal, and hustle to survive.

Enter Julius Dax, online repo man and real-life thief. He's been hired for a special job: stealing an unknown object from a reclusive tech billionaire. But when he finds out he's stolen the first sentient AI, his payday gets a lot more complicated.

Reviews for Repo Virtual

Repo Virtual constructs a stunningly vivid cyberpunk world that blurs the line between illusion and reality, dripping with the neon panache of a technological juggernaut in an action packed heist that'll steal your heart with ideas that are as revealing as they are powerful. --Peter Tieryas Repo Virtual sets itself apart with its gleeful heart and underdog charm. --BookPage Starred Review A richly imagined, futuristic stand-alone with appeal to gamers, SF fans, and armchair futurists alike. --Kirkus Reviews Cyberpunk is not only back but may have come full circle. --The Toronto Star White twists the volume up, both dramatizing and warning against unchecked AI. What lingers is an important observation: no culture can retain its power and sanity when there are no noncynical eyes to see it. Cyberpunk and general sf readers will enjoy and even learn from this one. --Library Journal
