One dimension over and a day into the future, a cycle blogger catches the eye of a Machiavellian genius child named Beverly. She drags him into the world of the Beast, a group of battle-suited fighters dedicated to removing the destructive elements plaguing mankind. His path winds through friendship, violence, failure, sex, and questionable triumph. At the end, he is left puzzled over whether he had become a hero or a villain.
Fast-paced and surreal, The Daydream Engine blends heart-pounding Sci-fi action with complex relationships and bitter philosophy. If you feel that the rich should all go jump off a cliff, if you feel that politics is all just theater, if you deeply resent having to live in a constant tug of war between rent and food, this book points the finger at those responsible. Freya folds lots of juicy sex and violence with biting counter-cultural commentary and follows the traditions of Aldous Huxley, George Orwell and Johnathan Swift in holding up a mirror to the ugly realities we do our best to ignore. She also wrote The Daydream Engine as a prequel to Arthur C. Clarke's Childhoods End and filled it with fully inclusive romance scenes, twists and turns that keep you guessing and lots of easter eggs like the word count being 72,666. This debut novel from outsider novelist Freya LeGuin is sure to be an immediate cult classic, and will scratch the itch injustice puts just outside your reach.
