Publisher's Summary

Canary Islands, 1882: Caught in the 19th-century wave of scientific classification, explorer and plant biologist Niklas Bruunis researches Crissia pallida, a species alleged to have hallucinogenic qualities capable of eliminating the psychic limits between one human mind and another. 

Buenos Aires, 1983: Born to a white Argentinian anthropologist and a black Brazilian engineer, Cassio comes of age with the Internet, and demonstrates the skills and personality that will make him one of the first great Argentine hackers. 

The southern Argentinian techno-hub of Bariloche, 2024: Piera, on the same research group as Cassio, studies human DNA. When the Estromatoliton project comes to fruition, the Argentine government will be able to track every movement of its citizens without their knowledge or consent, using censors that identify DNA at a distance. 

In a dazzling novel of towering ambition, Oloixarac proves that true power resides in the world's most deeply shadowed interstices, as beautiful and horrifying as dark constellations themselves.

Terrible

It’s like they used a thesaurus to replace each word with an obscure word of similar meaning to string together a somewhat coherent sentence.

The book is hard to follow, un-relatable, and un-enjoyable at best.

Kudos to the reader for being able to read this garbage.

This is the worst narrator I’ve ever heard

Every sentence ends in the same tone pattern. Really unbelievable someone could hire this woman.
