Publisher's Synopsis

Expect giant robots, explosive battles and lots and lots of feelings in this queer space opera from Alex White.

In this new wide-screen space opera, humanity has met its match. An alien race of enormous robotic AI have destroyed most of humanity's outposts. But, on the eve of the Earth's destruction, at a goodbye party thrown by nonbinary rock star Ardent Violet, a young man makes one last desperate attempt to reach out and convinces one of humanity's enemies to switch sides. Now, earth just might have a chance to survive...

'Evangelion by way of David Bowie - visceral, big-hearted, and ready to rock your world'
Emily Skrutskie, author of Bonds of Brass

'August Kitko is a wild ride that starts with the end of the world and only gets better from there '
K.B. Wagers

'Emotionally complex and mind-blisteringly weird, this novel kept surprising me at every turn. It's like a beautifully-orchestrated disco space battle, and I never wanted it to end'
Annalee Newitz, Lambda Award winning author of Autonomous

'A brilliant firework display of apocalypses, giant robots, gore, glam, and a nonbinary icon - this is mecha absolutely masterfully done'
Everina Maxwell, author of Winter's Orbit

Praise for Alex White:

'A clever fusion of magic and sci-fi makes this book a total blast. I was hooked from page one.'
V. E. Schwab on A Big Ship at the Edge of the Universe
