Cyborg samurai Cat LeBlanc takes charge when aliens overrun a city—only to discover humans may be the greater threat—in this cyberpunk adventure.
A small city mostly populated by well-to-do retirees, Burlington, Vermont, is now home to the Antithesis. The alien flora has taken root underground and throughout the surrounding woodlands, giving birth to monstrous beings driven by instinct to consume Earth’s own living creatures. With only three rookie samurai to protect them and resources dwindling fast, the people of Burlington are facing extinction.
Cat LeBlanc’s success against the Antithesis in the megacity of New Montreal has raised her profile amongst the samurai. And despite her antiauthoritarian attitude and appetite for destruction in combat, she’s been assigned to assume command of Burlington’s defenses. Against her better judgment—and though it means taking time away from her girlfriend, Lucy, and their adopted gang of children, “the kittens”—Cat accepts the mission.
Accompanied by pyrotechnic nun Gomorrah, Cat finds Burlington’s downtown is indeed struggling to survive, but the privileged residents of River Heights thrive behind the protection of their privately funded militia. Worse, the undisciplined trio of samurai-in-training she’s supposed to lead are variously arrogant, rebellious, and insecure. Now, Cat must forge a fighting force out of them while playing politics with the city’s wealthiest power brokers.
Unfortunately, their enemy doesn’t also suffer from political and personal conflicts. The Antithesis is of one mind, a hive determined to spread their contagion across Earth. And if Cat can’t rally the samurai, soldiers, and citizens of Burlington to work together, the fall of the city may foretell humanity’s eventual fate . . .
The fifth volume of the hit LitRPG sci-fi series—with more than nine million views on Royal Road—now available on Audible and wherever ebooks are sold!

Hollie Jackson

Harnessing a childhood steeped in storytelling and a deep love of the written word, with over 600 titles (and growing) under my belt, I always strive to bring a wide range of characters to vibrant, compelling life, allowing for total immersion in the story. I want you to feel the real world melt away as you engage with my work, whatever the genre, whether it's on the lighter side (cozy mysteries, LitRPG, comedic paranormal romance) or the darker desires (reverse harem, steamy dystopia, sci-fi thrillers) and everything in between. Currently on the rosters of multiple major publishers like Podium, Tantor and ACX, I’ve worked with authors around the world. I’m proficient in a variety of accents, am a member of SAG/AFTRA, have won multiple independent awards, including the IAA for Horror 2019, and am constantly working to expand my repertoire across the spectrum of incredible works available. I’ve studied with some of the best in the industry, including Paul Meier and Pat Fraley, and am always studying new techniques to enhance my performance. I’m proficient in a wide range of accents and dialects, including UK, French, German, Russian, Irish, Scottish, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and Eastern/Southern US. Working from my home studio, using top-of-the-line equipment, I always provide crisp, clear audio with editing and proofing to ensure a distraction free listening experience.
