frend

Book

After suffering a brutal attack that lands her in the hospital, Anomié makes a decision:

She is officially dropping out of the human race.

At the urging of a stranger, Anomié volunteers for a series of intricate surgical procedures to replace the majority of her natural, organic body with powered prosthetics — transforming her into something decidedly different, a human-machine hybrid — in the hopes of joining the Frend Program, an unusual matchmaking service that provides hybrid companions for members of the Lumen, a group of software-based beings of advanced artificial intelligence.

As Anomié delves deeper into her newfound existence as a Frend, she encounters a group of humans dedicated to ending the existence of the Lumen, and as the group’s leader actively recruits her to join their cause, Anomié finds herself caught between worlds, embroiled in a conflict between two opposing forces, as she simultaneously struggles to unravel a mystery that cuts to the heart of her identity, her very nature, and the extent of her true capabilities.
