Pacific Rim Meets Fast and Furious.
Gary Gibson, author of the Shoal Sequence (Stealing Light, Nova War, Empire of Light, and Marauder), returns with a high-octane story that opens with a prison break and builds from there, setting woman against machine against monster.
Kaiju: a Japanese word meaning ‘strange creature’. In English, it has come to mean ‘giant monster’.
The Devil’s Run: annual road race that circumnavigates the post-apocalyptic ruins of Teijouan, whose devastated cities teem with Kaiju.
Dutch McGuire: a notorious veteran of the Run, busted out of a high security prison to drive the race one final time.
Madame Muto: Once Dutch’s closest friend, now her bitterest enemy; a crime lord who has sworn to see her dead.
The Rift: an enigma that stands at the heart of Teijouan, the gateway through which the Kaiju manifest on Earth.
Gary Gibson: an author who has mastered the art of writing stories with adrenaline switched up to the max.
Nobody has taken part in the Devil’s Run as often as Dutch McGuire and lived to tell the tale. Faced with a choice between being eaten by the monstrous Kaiju that prowl the island’s devastated cities or murdered by her fellow racers, the odds against surviving another Run, let alone winning it, are slim. The odds don’t concern Dutch, however; all she cares about is getting back behind the wheel of her beloved Ford Falcon, so when a crooked billionaire offers to put her back in the race on condition she uses it as cover for a secret retrieval operation, she can’t refuse.
