The Cut of Your Jib

Mewling girl, grand hero, Godling…Riley has become much more than she bargained for when she set out into SUBURB all those many moons ago. She has quarrelled with friends, died. Rewritten the past of the universe - just to be a natural child, and not an adoption loved all the same. And more than anything, she has struggled. Struggled with loss, and loss of hope. Struggled to overcome, and struggled with failure. Riley has killed, and fought against impossible odds - danced between battleships, watched c-beams glitter in the dark. She has deceived and lied; made deals with devils just to double-cross them. And more than anything else, she can no longer tell you who she is…

Because she doesn't know. Because she's changed - changing. She is on the cusp of a brilliant transformation: from Godling to God. And she will make the transition. But what she can't guarantee…is how much of her life will survive the experience. Overcome with a rage as yet impossible to control, Riley has so far found no equal. And that threatens to destroy everything she holds dear.
