For the most hated crew on Requiem, the only way out is up.
It’s been four months since runaway heiress Asa crash-landed on the matriarchal outlaw colony Requiem, bringing a nasty AI and a host of deadly secrets with her. Now, she runs with her almost-girlfriend Riven’s smuggler crew, stealing kisses between gunfights and heists. But when a mysterious hacker sabotages their latest job, other gangs turn against them, blaming them for the destruction the rogue AI caused. Nowhere in the city is safe.
The only way to protect their crew is a series of trials for control of an underworld faction–and vying for a matriarch’s throne is a dream Riven can’t let go. But as the trials intensify, the saboteur hounds Asa and Riven’s every step, determined to kill Asa and right her father’s wrongs. When the saboteur reveals a horrific conspiracy threatening all of Requiem–one involving the crew member they thought they’d lost–the girls must decide whether to risk their own skins for a city that loathes them.
“An explosive sequel that feels like stepping into a favorite video game armed with neon-soaked bullets! The whole crew is back and better than ever in this perfect follow up to Winn's cyberpop debut.” —Meg Long, author of Cold the Night, Fast the Wolves
“Cyberpunk at its neon best. With City of Vicious Night, Winn offers a triumphant return to Requiem—and the sequel her sci-fi band of misfits deserved. The stakes are higher, the technology cooler, and the villains more insidiously cruel. Perfect for those looking for a high-octane thrill ride through a futuristic dystopia!” —Kate Dylan, author of Mindwalker
"City of Vicious Night is a fast-paced, badass, neon dream of a sci-fi novel—packed with action, grit, and a found family that will dig its cybernetic claws into your heart and not let go!" —Laura Rueckert, author of A Dragonbird in the Fern
"Claire Winn delivers a thrilling adventure full of heart in the rocketing-stakes, fast-paced conclusion to the Requiem Dark series. I loved being back in the matriarch-ruled cyberpunk city of Requiem with Riven, Asa and the rest of the ride-or-die crew. A hugely entertaining read!" —Vanessa Len, author of Only a Monster
“A heartfelt, fast-paced, action-packed sequel that'll keep you on the edge of your seat.” —Alechia Dow, author of The Sound of Stars
“Claire Winn stares directly at fans of City of Shattered Light and screams ‘Do you want more?!’ with this neon showstopper of a sequel. City of Vicious Night delivers more full-tilt battle action, more creepy tech and mind-linking shenanigans, more high-stakes underworld intrigue, more romantic tension, and all of the snark, banter and never-say-die attitude that made us fall in love with the Boomslang crew.” —Ren Hutchings, author of Under Fortunate Stars
“City of Vicious Night is a fast-paced, neon-drenched cyberpunk romp filled with imaginative tech, gritty settings, and disaster bisexuals galore. Fans of sci-fi gunslinging, underworld politics, and Netflix's Arcane won't want to miss this kickass sequel.” —M. J. Kuhn, author of Among Thieves
