INMANI Maxine Ali is a monster hunter in the sprawling neon empire under Benedict the Goodfather, High Inquisitor of the United Churches. Six hundred years of war and advanced bio-weapons have filled the world with monsters—inmani. That same tech can enhance any punk into any shape they want, and all it costs is your soul; the churches of the divine form offer magic and immorality to those who stay human. Max said yes to a hard hunt: go undercover among the gene-hacked radicals working from the shadows to destroy Benedict’s peace. She agreed to be the gun in the hand of heaven—to give up her name and become a sleeper so she can kill the last general of the inmani. Max didn’t expect the enemy to offer so much worth fighting for. A novella, free to newsletter subscribers, and a great place to start. A novel, available now. Work in progress! Sign up for the newsletter for release announcements. As a child soldier and a refugee, Max knows how to kill and how to die. While her church family and her connections in the increasingly desperate insurgency both try to claim her her, Max must learn what it really means to live, to love, and to hunt monsters.
