Mass Effect: Andromeda: Nexus Uprising
“I feel it compliments the game so perfectly that the two both must be consumed to fully appreciate the narrative of the new Mass Effect franchise.”

Entertainment Buddha

SINless Series

Necrotech (#1)
“Mixing together high-tech imagination and conspiracy, this one is sure to satisfy the cyberpunk craving you didn’t know you had.”


“Alexander’s transhumanist world is by far the highlight of their debut novel. Readers are immersed in a society that’s equally fascinating as it is terrifying.”

RT Book Reviews

“I loved this book! I read all 400+ pages in one day, never wanting to put the book down […] I happily give this book 5 hoots and am already chomping at the bit to get the next one!”

Purple Owl Reviews

“To say I enjoyed this book would be a massive understatement […] This is one of the fastest-paced books I’ve read, which packs punches both physical and emotional […][Riko’s] the kind of heroine I’ve wanted to read for a long time but rarely actually GET.”

Silicon of the Internet

"There are plenty of fight scenes, copious amounts of hard-bitten attitude from the protagonist, and a plot that motors along."

Gimdark Magazine

“It’s explosive and it’s raw. K.C.’s writing is like a solid right-and-left-hook combo that leaves you breathless.”

Smorgasbord Fantasia

“NECROTECH is a high-octane cyberpunk thrill ride that starts at full throttle and never slows down. Riko is an amazing, diverse, ass-kicking character that will leave readers wanting more.”

Strange Horizons

“NECROTECH crushes everything in its path. Brutal, unapologetic, sexy cyberpunk, it is a steel-fisted punch in the mouth.”

Scott Sigler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Generations trilogy

“Sci-fi that’s slick, sharp and snarky — K. C. Alexander doesn’t ‘write’ so much as she fires words into your cerebral cortex with an electromagnetic railgun.”

Chuck Wendig, The New York Times bestselling author of STAR WARS: AFTERMATH and INVASIVE

“NECROTECH is a speed freak rush down mean streets of the digital, the modified, and the just plain crazy. It’s like razors for your brain.”

Richard Kadrey, The New York Times bestselling author of SANDMAN SLIM

“Vulgar, vicious, and very very good! Alexander pulls no punches in this intense debut.”

Jason M. Hough, The New York Times bestselling author of ZERO WORLD

“NECROTECH bleeds with raw & unapologetic badassery. Riko is the cyberpunk heroine I’ve been waiting for, struggling with the truth that the tech we embrace to solve our problems just creates new ones, and no one has a chipset to fix humanity’s bugs. K.C. Alexander dials up the attitude, anguish, and adrenaline in this explosive debut, and I’m looking forward to Riko’s next run.”

Kevin Hearne, The New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles

“[NECROTECH] is a tight, violent thrillride in a fascinating cyberpunk world with one of the most interesting women protagonists I’ve read in a long time.”

Stephen Blackmoore, author of Broken Souls and Dead Things

“Scalding and brutal as a radiation shower, punishing as a street fight, and as sharp as a blade to the jugular, Necrotech and its badass heroine, Riko, will grab your heart in a diamond steel fist and squeeze it to a pulp.”

Lila Bowen, author of Wake of Vultures

Nanoshock (#2)
“An intense, gleefully profane, fearlessly inventive, unapologetically grimy cyberpunk caper with an unforgettable protagonist.”

Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Magazine

“This book was an exceptional follow up to the first one and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.”

Purple Owl

“NANOSHOCK crushes everything in its path. Brutal, unapologetic, sexy cyberpunk, it is a steel-fisted punch in the mouth.”

Scott Sigler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Generations trilogy
