Binary

When confiscated genestock is stolen out of secure government quarantine, DI Sharon Varsi finds herself on the biggest case of her career: chasing down a clever thief, a mysterious hacker, and the threat of new, black market gemtech.

Zavcka Klist, ruthless industrial enforcer, has reinvented herself. Now the head of Bel’Natur, she wants gem celebrity Aryel Morningstar’s blessing for the company’s revival of infotech – the science that spawned the Syndrome, nearly destroyed mankind and led to the creation of the gems. With illness in her own family that only a gemtech can cure, Aryel’s in no position to refuse.

As the infotech programme inches towards a breakthrough, Sharon’s investigations lead ever closer to the dark heart of Bel’Natur, the secrets of Aryel Morningstar’s past . . . and what Zavcka Klistis really after.

'A fascinating and compelling read ... It comes highly recommended and we can only hope that the rest of the series to come is just as gripping' Starburst.

Binary is an exciting book that . . . is great fun to read.

I've said that Rewriting The Script is about focusing on authors who offer something fresh and new in SF/F, and if Stephanie Saulter doesn't count as one of those - indeed, perhaps as one of the brightest and best - then I don't know who does. This is another five-star effort from a writer that you absolutely do not want to allow to fly under the radar.
Over The Effing Rainbow
Great characters and a superb storyline that will make you stop and wonder. If you are looking for a unique concept in science-fiction, get the revolution series. You won't go wrong.
The Book Plank
We should be giving Saulter recognition for the intelligence and craft that she brings to her books . . . So much science fiction glosses over the creation of post-human species. The (R)Evolution series dives straight into the heart of the issues, and it has not finished with them yet.

The Founding Fields
Binary presents an entertaining and compelling story, with a tight and energetic climax . . . Stephanie Saulter is definitely an interesting writer, and one whose work I intend to keep seeking out
Strange Horizons
In Binary Stephanie Saulter has created an evocative and wonderfully crafted story . . . she has truly captured a future setting with all it's mess and madness, it's order and disorder, it's differences and similarities and it's sheer humanity
The Bookbeard's Blog
Stephanie Saulter has once again triumphed in a terrific, un-put-downable, novel with plenty to keep the reader guessing and desperate to find out the truth behind the mystery. 9/10
Sleepless Musings Of A Well Groomed Moustached Man
one of the most powerful, thought provoking books I've ever read
Bookworm Blues
