A veteran of the War, Reina can’t stop fighting. Only now, she’s no longer on Mars, and she’s no longer a soldier. Scarred by her time as an Electronic Warfare Service drone operator, Reina has transformed herself into a notorious cybercriminal, and she’s turned her hatred of the Weyland Consortium into a personal crusade. Her goal? Expose the corp’s machinations and exact vigilante justice.

When Reina’s efforts lead her deep into some of Weyland’s most heavily secured servers, she discovers that its geothermal fracking initiative, Project Vulcan, is far more dangerous than the public realizes. But then again, so is the Weyland Consortium. As Reina digs deeper and contacts old allies, she learns firsthand just how far the megacorp will go to protect its secrets.

As the stakes grow higher, the body count rises. Can Reina expose the threat posed by Project Vulcan? And, in the end, will her crusade be worth the cost?

Written by Android universe co-creator Daniel Lovat Clark, Monster Slayer follows the network deeper into the life and struggles of La Reina Roja, a runner shaped by the War and her desire to expose the Weyland Consortium’s darkest activities. The book’s multidimensional approach guides readers through the virtual world and the meatspace of New Angeles, offering the most comprehensive exploration of the runner’s lifestyle to date.

What good are a console, a couple of contacts, and some military-honed skills against the might of the Weyland Consortium? In addition to its 96 pages of fiction, the hardcover edition of Monster Slayer comes with a sixteen-page full color insert full of setting details pertinent to the story, including backstory on GRNDL, the First Mars Expeditionary Brigade, and the New Angeles underground.
