Summary (by Goodreads)

Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them survived growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.

Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.

When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.

Paula Stokes is a new author to me and this novel sounds interesting. I might wait and see how some of the reviews turn out from it before diving in though. TOR is the publisher, whom I love. They have also churned out some great authors in the past that I follow (such as Kendare Blake).

  1. This sounds interesting! I think I agree with you that I'd want to wait and see some reviews for it first, but the premise makes it sound pretty exciting. I'm also a huge fan of Tor Books, so that's a good sign. Great pick!
