Echoes of Silence
by D. B. Goodin
She knows her humanity is more than skin-deep. Now she has to prove it—and risk losing everything.
Betrayed, injured, and alone in an unfamiliar city, newly awakened cyborg Treeka needs to escape her captors. They left Meeka, her wounded twin sister, to die in the streets. Treeka will do anything to prevent that outcome… even bargain empty-handed with the local mob.
Her next objective: find a means to repair Meeka’s cybernetic implants. Unfortunately, her weakened state leaves Treeka vulnerable, and someone kidnaps her and brings her to the back-alley clinic of Doc Chop, a “cyberdoc” who claims to repair damaged cyborg components. Treeka suspects the cure might be worse than the disease and bolts before he can experiment on her, and she renews her focus on her twin.
