Unabridged Chick

I'm Audra, a 30-something married lesbian. I love interesting heroines, gorgeous prose, place as character, and the occasional werewolf.
Heavy Metal Pulp: Pleasure Model - Christopher Rowley I'm unfamiliar with Heavy Metal magazine, so I had no idea what to expect from Pleasure Model. What it was is unexpected, delicious fun.Even though it's got a bit of a cyberpunk/sci-fi setting, it reads like a noir: gritty setting, sexy and amoral heroes, a strong sense of place, lots of shades of gray. The world building was just appropriate -- enough to give the reader a sense of what life is like without bogging anyone down with unnecessary details. This is the first book in a series and I'm eagerly anticipating the sequel.
