Marc Giller provides a fast-paced read in Prodigal as Lea Prism and Nathan Straka strive to fight evil and save the world from terrorists and an overzealous military. The Collective that runs the world consists of corporations and gangsters loosely molded on the Japanese underworld. Once a criminal and hammerjack, computer network junkie Lea seeks to annihilate her former friends. Action and violence drive her toward her goal of destroying the Inru and their chief agent Avalon. This novel picks up where Hammerjack left off.

From official release/information:

Book Description: In his riveting debut, Hammerjack, Marc Giller unspooled a futuristic thriller of global intrigue, corporate espionage, and techno-terrorism. Now he delivers a gritty new novel of deadly resurrection and a no-holds-barred fight for the future…

Once an elusive hammerjack plunged into a virtual world of code, Lea Prism has been reborn as a corporate spook, hell-bent on ridding the universe of the anti-tech Inru terrorists. Their attempt to accelerate evolution robbed her of her once chance for happiness. Now the man she loved is nothing but a disembodied consciousness–and part of the computer matrix she has sworn to defend.

But from the depths of a Martian volcano to the radioactive wasteland of Chernobyl, the Inru have launched one last offensive–giving rise to a final scenario more terrifying than anyone could imagine. The forces of technology are poised to distort the very worst of what nature has to offer...and the stage is set for battle.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
