My dad introduced this to me, and it's really interesting so far. I love how you start out in the perspective of a grandfather, especially because it's not common. And the concept of the "Skin" is captivating by itself!

Thank you reading and commenting, Abbi! I'm glad you're enjoying the novel so far. There will be more interesting uses of tech in the next chapter, so I hope you'll stick around!

Epic! That skin is freaky, for sure. For a moment, I thought Shen's capitulation from defiance to acceptance of her grandfather's desire (to not go to the megacity) was far too sudden - but of course the capitulation was an illusion. That was cool.

This was a great read. I particularly enjoyed the world design (“feral-hunter” is a pretty neat invention) and the complex interpersonal drama. Great job, I’m excited to see what comes next!
