    Om Sweet Harmony

    'NORTH IS AN ORIGINAL AND EVEN DAZZLING WRITER' Kirkus From the award-winning, bestselling Claire North comes a brand new stand- alone novella - a clever and unnervingly plausible dystopian tale set five minutes into the future . . . Harmony is tired. Tired of working so hard, tired of the way she looks, tired of being average. But all that changes when she decides to splash out and upgrade her nanos. And why not? Everyone's doing it now. With a simple in-app purchase, you can update the tech in your bloodstream to transform yourself - get enhanced brain power, the perfect body or a dazzling smile. Suddenly, everything starts going right for Harmony. She's finally becoming the person she always wanted to be. But when she ends up running too many upgrades on her body all at once, the effects will be more catastrophic than she could have imagined. With Sweet Harmony, Claire North proves yet again that she is one of the most innovative and original voices in modern fiction. Praise for Sweet Harmony: 'Terrifying, plausible, and intelligent. An outstanding novella' Fantasy Book Critic 'Sweet Harmony doesn't just deliver a scary and convincing near future but also glorious, on-point writing . . .

    North's take on nano-upgrades, a sense of identity, and addiction is terrifying, plausible, and intelligent. An outstanding novella Mesmeric, terrifying and wonderful. North is practically her own genre at this point. Sweet Harmony doesn't just deliver a scary and convincing near future but also glorious, on-point writing . . . Strongly recommended An unnerving, sharply observed and altogether too plausible novella . . . Recommended North's latest once again displays her mastery of lyrical prose . . . The author presents a fascinating testament to humanity's fallibility and tendency towards denial, merged with the potency of truth and the power of love Claire North . . . successfully explores the human weaknesses that can be ruthlessly exploited by unscrupulous corporations in this brilliant SF novella North's talent shines out Claire North is a true original, a master of ingenious plotting and feats of imagination Claire North's writing is terrific, smart and entertaining North demonstrates skill in creating a terrifying setting that feels rooted to the present day . . . Every aspect of life in Theo's Britain is imbued with a menace that feels both recognizable and urgent, and the decisions the characters make as a result feel uncomfortably real.
