Check out "Blood Ties: Daddy's Little Girl" and join Cuicatl "Cat" Cruz on an action-packed quest to save the world from a madman.
It's got unicorns! Modified revolvers and nanite-enhanced cybernetic implants! Conflicting paradigms of morality in a post-postmodern world! And a Welshman! (Well, eventually.)
