I Can’t Wait for… Splintegrate by Deborah Teramis Christian

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine.

My pick for this week features a professional dominatrix imprisoned, altered against her will, and turned into a brutal weapon. It’s being called “Kushiel’s Dart gone cyberpunk“.

Title: Splintegrate

Author: Deborah Teramis Christian

Publisher: Tor Books

Publication Date: December 31, 2019

Genres: Epic Fantasy

Shelves: Female-author, Female-dominant, Female-fronted-fantasy

Deborah Teramis Christian returns to science fiction with a rousing stand-alone sequel to fan favorite Mainline.

One of the many charms of planet Lyndir is the Between-World, home to the licensed entertainers of the Sa’adani Empire. The most famous is Kes, a professional dominatrix who has become a celebrity attraction at a palatial house of domination called Tryst.

One of Kes’s most devoted clients is the crime cartel boss Janus, a major cog in the underworld on Lyndir and elsewhere. When a high-powered imperial authority decides she wants Janus out of the way, the seductive domina Kes is the most logical avenue. She’d never betray a client’s trust, but the imperial threat to her and her Between-World sisters is so great that she has no choice but to assist.

Imprisoned, altered against her will, and turned into a brutal weapon by the highly experimental Splintegrate cloning technology, Kes is at war with herself as everything she holds dear falls apart around her. It will take an enormous triumph of will and help from some unlikely avenues for Kes to survive the government’s machinations and pursue the independence she’s craved her entire life.

  1. I’m so happy when this one finally got a firm release date! I think I’ve had this one on my Goodreads TBR for a couple years and it always felt like such a tease whenever I saw the release date change especially since after we got that beautiful cover!
