The Lost Thorn
The Lost Thorn is a science fiction novel written by Joshua Aguayo. It features a a strong, and insane, female protagonist. It fuses the ideas of cyberpunk with dashes of urban fantasy. It's a heart pounding adventure told from the perspective of a highly unstable and chaotic girl who has lost everything she held dear, leaving her with just a powerful drug as a means to cope with the inescapable pain.
Cyberpunk meets psychological thriller. The Lost Thorn introduces a new layer of complexity and struggle as the female protagonist fights not only with the might of Mega-corporations and the gangs of slums built inside an active volcano, but with the demons of addiction and anxiety.
The novel is grim, depressing, a social critique. Which often becomes a foil for the protagonist, whose voice we hear guiding us through her story. She is spunky, easygoing, careless and terrible at making puns. This is an adventure of contrasts from beginning to end, one that will leave you hanging and asking for more.
It has it's own landing page on the Full Runa website which can be found here: THE LOST THORN
