Description

In a far future where technology is all but indistinguishable from magic, Tanyana is one of the elite.

She can control pions, the building blocks of matter, shaping them into new forms using ritual gestures and techniques. The rewards are great, and she is one of most highly regarded people in the city. But that was before the "accident".

Stripped of her powers, bound inside a bizarre powersuit, she finds herself cast down to the very lowest level of society. Powerless, penniless and scarred, Tanyana must adjust to a new life collecting 'debris', the stuff left behind by pions. But as she tries to find who has done all of this to her, she also starts to realize that debris is more important than anyone could guess.

Review quote

"Refreshingly original... an accomplished debut." - The Guardian "Jo Anderton combines elements of steampunk with her own unique vision to create something striking. Debris is a first novel NOT to be missed." - Marianne de Pierres, award winning author of the Parish Plessis and Sentients of Orion series. "Anderton's debut impressively combines far-future world-building, conspiracies, and a redemption quest. [She] clearly telegraphs the overall plot arc, but keeps it interesting with Tanyana's strong, proud narrative voice and the complex culture built up around the pions and debris." - Publishers Weekly
