Description

January 2009. In the midst of the financial crisis, a mysterious figure, Satoshi Nakamoto, publishes the Bitcoin code. The disruptive power of this digital currency is enormous, as it has been designed so that it cannot be controlled by any banking or government authority and allows for completely anonymous transactions. Special Agent Harris is assigned to find out who is hiding behind that identity. Meanwhile, a powerful cybercriminal organization is also searching for Nakamoto and will stop at nothing. Ada, a young prodigy studying in Barcelona, and L30n, an elusive hacker, will be swept up in this pursuit.

Reality and fiction intertwine in this techno-thriller that weaves a tense plot exploring the power of money and technology.

Advance Praise

"Love a great sci-fi book with a strong female lead! This is IT"

"This book immediately drew me in with its electrifying story and the mystery surrounding Satoshi Nakamoto. It felt like a thrilling blend of Dan Brown and Stieg Larsson, packed with suspense, technology, and a touch of romance."

"The ending is quite a surprise. However, don't race to the last page when you get the book. it won't make sense if you haven't read all the twists on the way to the end. I really enjoyed this book because it reminded me of William Gibson."

"I wasn't sure if I was going to feel a little lost reading this book given the nature of the e-currency plot (personally I'm not too well versed), but I wanted to branch out and try something new and man am I so glad I did! In contrast to a lot of other Amazon indie books out there (a lot seem rushed these days) this one really grabbed me. It was hard to put down and kept me guessing, and the characters? Perfectly mysterious and at the same time so relatable. This book has the perfect combination of old-world and futuristic technology sprinkled in, and believe me, even if you haven't kept a pulse on bitcoin and the world of digital currency, you'll enjoy this. I'll be looking forward to the next book by this author!"

J. Raventos' Dark Goddess offers readers a riveting fusion of mythology, technology, and power struggles in a contemporary setting. Set against the backdrop of the 2009 financial crisis, Raventos intricately weaves a tale that explores the intersection of ancient myth and modern technology, creating a techno-thriller that is as thought-provoking as it is exhilarating.

At the heart of the narrative is the emergence of Bitcoin and the enigmatic figure behind its creation, Satoshi Nakamoto. Special Agent Harris, tasked with uncovering Nakamoto's true identity, finds himself embroiled in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, where the line between reality and fiction blurs.

Meanwhile, Ada, a young prodigy in Barcelona, and L30n, an elusive hacker, are drawn into the fray as they become entangled in the pursuit of Nakamoto by a powerful cybercriminal organization. As the story unfolds, themes of power, manipulation, and the consequences of technological advancement take center stage, driving the narrative forward with intensity and intrigue.

Raventos' narrative prowess shines through in the seamless blending of mythology and modern-day technology, creating a world that is both familiar and fantastical. The characters are richly drawn, each grappling with their own desires and motivations against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving digital landscape.

What sets Dark Goddess apart is its ability to keep readers on the edge of their seats with its gripping plot twists and turns. From its atmospheric opening to its pulse-pounding climax, the novel immerses readers in a world where the lines between myth and reality are blurred, leaving them questioning the nature of power and the limits of human ambition.

For fans of techno-thrillers and mythology enthusiasts alike, Dark Goddess is a captivating read that offers a fresh take on the genre. J. Raventos' masterful storytelling and imaginative world-building make this novel a must-read for anyone seeking an exhilarating journey into the realms of myth and technology.
