An explosive cyberpunk SF thriller from the author of Mindwalker, set in a world of corporate intrigue and dangerous technology.

No more quiet rebellions.

Born into a religious cult, Indra Dyer lives a simple, tech-free existence. But when an illicit trip leaves her with a debilitating – and terminal – condition, Indra must choose: die faithful or betray her Order and accept the cure Glindell Technologies is offering.

Forced to sign over her life, Indra is horrified to learn the true nature of Glindell’s plans. Instead of saving her body, they upload her mind to a MindDrive, housed in a robotic shell.

On the outside, Indra looks the same; on the inside, she’s not so sure. She keeps finding herself in places she really shouldn’t be, with no memory of how she got there, and dangerous abilities she can’t explain. So when news breaks of an attack against Glindell’s biggest rival, Indra suspects the worst.

With the help of Tian – a research assistant with questionable morals and a smile that won’t quit – Indra must uncover the truth, before Glindell can use it to change the face of technology, and what it means to be human, forever . . .

Witty dialogue, compelling themes, tense action, a determined protagonist - Dylan has taken all these, soaked them in neon, and shaken them into a dystopian thriller that fizzes with energy and rebellion
Hannah Kaner, Sunday Times bestselling author of Godkiller
Witty, gritty, and vicious fun. It's a tour de force in visual storytelling, and brings out the nuances of consent and autonomy in a digital world. I also loved the heart-pounding, edge of seat action sequences that felt like they were straight out of a movie (honestly, they should make one), and I read it so fast my head is still spinning.
Saara El-Arifi, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Battle Drum
A frenzied feat of genius. Dylan is an auto-buy author for me, her writing always promises an invigorating ride at breakneck speed -- MINDBREAKER is no exception. An electric plot is interspersed with touching moments of resilience from a magnetic cast of characters, whose stupid decisions still have you rooting for more. Oh and it's queer. Need I say anything else?
L.R. Lam, Sunday Times Bestselling author of Dragonfall and False Hearts
Mindbreaker is everything you want in a cyberpunk thriller: sharp writing, explosive pacing, and hard-hitting questions about tech and AI. It's like reading a Marvel blockbuster in book form
A. Y. Chao, Sunday Times bestselling author of Shanghai Immortal
Kate Dylan takes tech, dogma, and corporate power, wraps it in a dystopian wasteland and delivers an explosive, high body count, white knuckle ride
M. K. Lobb, Sunday Times Bestselling author of Seven Faceless Saints
High stakes, fast paced, and utterly unputdownable. Mindbreaker is an imaginative thrill ride through a world of cults and Big Tech, spearheaded by a girl who redefines what it means to be human. Fans of Mindwalker will not be disappointed by this triumphant return to Dylan's complex but accessible sci-fi universe
Tasha Suri, award-winning author of The Burning Kingdoms series
Sharp as knives and just as dangerous, Mindbreaker is an unmissable dystopian thriller
The Irish Times
This deeply satisfying thriller poses questions about the nature of humanity and our relationship with artificial intelligence and other technologies, without letting itself indulge in philosophical musings. It's tremendously enjoyable, if also a worryingly believable portrayal of a potential future
