    1 thought on “Liquid Cool: The Cyberpunk Detective Series”

    1. With this book, I got to enjoy more the weirdness of the plot, their characters, with their incredible funny names and I think prefectly applied. Cruz is funky and bright, albeit his manias. Austin has this unique way of writing; at first I was getting muddled, but after reading more I kind of liked the style, it makes me appreciate more and to stay more focused! Cool, cool!

    2. A typical case of form over substance.First thing, it looks like a rip-off of Glen Cook's Garrett files series set in a cyberpunk environment. I can live with that. There are good concepts, most characters are cliché but cool enough and likeable, some action and decent humour. There's even a plot.What it totally lacks is a coherent narration. This is the first time I read a detective story where you never seem to see the detective investigate anything. There are huuuuuge holes in the narration. [...]

    3. ***** I was given a copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review *****Wow!! what a story and where is the half star which GR promised a long time ago. The story is little slow to pick up and then it just takes off into the Hovercar traffic. It's Sci-Fi detective story and it delivers on both counts.The megacity where our Hero Cruz lives in a wet place where is rains about 80% of the times well at least they don't have to worry about water any more. The mystery starts with a sh [...]

    4. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest reviewI'm not even really sure where to begin this review, I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for a review. Liquid Cool is probably an exercise in an attempt of style over substance, it's a book that wants nothing more than for the reader to think that it's cool. Successful authors, and film directors, usually develop a style over their career that most people can identify as belonging to them. Liq [...]

    5. LIQUID COOL is a work which I can't say is the best cyberpunk novel I've ever read but I'm going to say was consistently entertaining from beginning to end. It had its flaws but they didn't diminish the overall experience. The book is more noir and adopts the tropes of Raymond Chandler over William Gibson so it's definitely more detective than cyberpunk but it's still solidly within the latter genre. The premise is in the future, Metropolis is the largest city in the world with about forty milli [...]

    6. Even though there were quite a few typos :-)Admittedly, I didn't know what to expect of this cyberpunk novel: pleasantly surprised! I'll put this out of the way first: yeap, there are a noticeable amount of typos, and even a full repeat of a small paragraph at the beginning of the novel. That threw me off for a moment, especially since I was tired when I read (and reread, and reread again) that repeat paragraph Thought I was hallucinating for a second :D That being said, I was able to get passed [...]

    7. Liquid Cool is totally cool. In a bleak, futuristic world where humanity is split between the good and the bad, the haves and have-nots, Cruz is trying to carve out a place for himself as a private detective. In typical anti-hero style, he is living on the fringe, waiting to get his license to prove to his future in-laws he's a worthy son in law for their daughter Dot. Big business and big crime rule this place leaving the population wrapped in an insular world where they isolate themselves with [...]

    8. A well written story.I did get this as a beta read from the author.My review as being asked is to be honest. This book does read as a bit juvenile at times, It does almost read like a collage English essay at single points. Some work is needed.Placing that aside, this is a great steampunk/ cybernovel to read, this is more of a young adult novel.The premise of the story is well thought out, the characters are relative and a point to our current society going to disorganization, ( the second law o [...]

    9. For fans of old school noir style detective stories and dystopian, futuristic scifi, this is a FUN read. I can just feel the grit and smell of the city.

    10. I received an electronic copy of Liquid Cool (along with its prequel: These Mean Streets, Darkly) from author Austin Dragon in exchange for an honest review. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would have given it four stars except for a few minor details pertaining to how disability is portrayed in two scenes (this may not be an issue worthy of note to most who may not live with disabilities themselves). The book is a cross between a sci-fi thriller and an old school detective mystery with a [...]

    11. Tough call how to rate this, because I really liked it, and will likely read the other books in the series by Mr. Dragon. I am a fledgling sci-fi writer myself. I picked up the book because I was intrigued by the unique setting description (describing settings are a weakness of mine, as a writer.) The book has much to offer by way of an interesting setting, a 50-million strong mega-city in earth's distant future, full of unique, memorable characters that seem like natural products of the chaotic [...]

    12. I Didn’t Know What Cyberpunk was, I do Know that Liquid Cool: The Cyberpunk Detective was GreatI am required to say I was given a free copy of the book by the author when I joined his newsletter mailing list with no expectation on his part of receiving a positive review and no expectation on my part of any additional remuneration. I don’t believe in reviewers giving a detailed synopsis of the book. I feel that is the job of the and it is the job of the reviewer to give an honest review. I do [...]

    13. How not to start or end a bookI'm giving 3 stars because of the plot, even if it was presented horribly.Pro Tip: don't write a detective novel in which the first time the words "detective" or " investigate" are mentioned is over 20% into the book.Pro Tips: don't make the reader wonder who your main character is until page 80--particularly when the book is written primarily in first person.Mysteries and detective novels are supposed to give the evidence required for the reader to figure out the e [...]

    14. I give this book 2.5 umbrellas.Hi Everyone! I am still playing catch up with my TBR and reviews that needed to be written. Something came up again and I had been devoting most of my time on that new endeavor for the past month. I am thankful that I have other things to keep me busy.I read this book sometime in June. The author sent me a message through my blog asking if I was interested to review one of his books. As always, my answer was yes. This is a cyberpunk detective series. Thank you agai [...]

    15. Cruz is thrust into the role of private detective by his life-long friend, Run-Time. Before, he was classified as a laborer who spent most of his time restoring hovercars. Their mutual friend, Easy Chair Charlie has been gunned down in a shootout with police. Or, did something else happen that was made to look that way?From the moment that Cruz accepts the case of Easy Chair Charlie someone tries to kill him. He solves the case almost instantly but the shootings continue. There is more to the ca [...]

    16. This one barely made two stars to be perfectly honest. While the story was interesting in and of itself it had some newly minted writer errors. I try to overlook those when the story is strong enough but when there are multiple chapters that don't advance the main story arc and you begin to wonder if you've mistaken what the main arc actually is then it becomes difficult to write off.The real problem with Liquid Cool is that there isn't anything brought to the table that hasn't been done in cybe [...]

    17. Cyberpunk book about a guy living in the slums trying to make a living as a private investigator. If you like crazy, risk-taking protagonists who do things their own way in a cyberpunk/detective setting, then this book is for you.Decent time killer, not too bad but not exceptional, either. 3 stars.Number of pages: 432Number of my highlights: 11My favorite quote(s): He was not a boss who demanded that staff snap to attention at his arrival. His philosophy was, "if you can't give me a high-five, f [...]

    18. Cyberpunk is a genre that isn't fused with others very often - it contains so many ingredients of other styles (noir, sci fi, thriller) that it's rare to see stories that pitch themselves squarely in a specific combination of elements. 'Liquid Cool' is a detective story in the cyberpunk style - near future setting, endless rain, and the noir sensibilities that are such an easy fit. The first in an ongoing series, it introduces private eye Cruz as he falls into his line of work almost by accident [...]

    19. The book is quite cool, with great imagination and a good way of getting you into the scenes without being one description upon another. You only get those deep ones when they really matter for the story. I must say I discovered one of the mysteries in the book before they were revealed, but not all, and it has several. The book is packed with quite a lot of characters and locations, and the action seems to stop only to start again with more force. That being said, some of the scenes were a litt [...]

    20. Liquid FantasticThis book was a true pleasure to read. I finished it in two days. Two of my vacation days no less. I can't remember a book that was this gripping and just begged me to turn the pages more. This is an absolute must have for any sci-fi detective series fan. What qualifications do I have to say this? This year I have read 45 booksIt was a slow year for me. The vast majority of them were science fiction. I am a science fiction nut and Liquid Cool is at the top of my list or reading. [...]

    21. I freely chose to review this ARC as I wanted to know what all the hype was about, so now I know and can't wait the rest of the series! I was intrigued as futuristic books are my passion and Cruz never let me down in his determination to reach the top when he was given a case to solve about what set Easy Chair Charlie to trigger a shootout with dozen of Metropolis cops when he knew Easy never carried a gun! And so begins Cruz's rise to a private investigator that eventually leads him to trying t [...]

    22. I enjoyed this story. The setting is a dark, damp, huge future city, filled with people who are either famous or infamous, all struggling to get by in a world of corruption and competition. A good deal of action, some humor and pretty quickly paced once the exposition of the first few chapters sets the scene. It would get 5 stars if the ending had tied up a few more loose ends, but that may be addressed in the sequel(s) to come. For now, 4 1/2 stars for a fun read in a noir-ish sci-fi detective [...]

    23. Fun read, great styleI really enjoyed this book. It has a great style, a zany world, and quirky characters. Almost felt like a long form comic book. The story moves forward at a quick pace and the cast of characters keeps entertaining. The future tech does not feel too made up and fits in the world really well.A few parts of the book got a little slow with unnecessary descriptions, but overall a great read.

    24. I loved the neo-noir, Sin City, flavor of the story and the writing is engaging. The book starts with chapters dedicated to one character, which gives the story a unique POV. The main character, Cruz, isn't introduced until chapter six.  The earlier characters are then slowly brought into the main plot of the book. Overall, the pace was fantastic and an easy read. The ending wrapped up the story, while keeping an edge for the sequel.

    25. Please, may I have another? Excellent new view of the whole cyberpunk genre. CP fiction has been becoming mainstream for years, developing its own canon and rules, and for many of us who remember the beginning of the movement, rather drab and more of an excuse for violence and weird sex. This novel changes that.Highly recommended. I look forward to the opportunity to read more of Dragon's writing.

    26. I enjoyed the first half of the book as we see the protagonist pulled into a difficult situation and how he adapts to cope. But in the second half there are too many brilliant deductions based on almost no investigation to seem plausible and the tone seemed to change from semi-serious to almost comic book.

    27. Fun readLiquid Cool was not exactly what I expected but was an enjoyable look into a futuristic megacity where the ultra-rich live off planet and megacorporations run the economy. The characters were likable if not all that deep, but I got sucked into the story and the atmosphere of this entirely plausible future. I'll definitely be reading more.

    28. Cyber-Noir at its finest. A fantastic monochrome detective novel set in the neon streets of the future. Memorable characters, solid plot and some wonderful set pieces. A must read for fans of cyberpunk and those that want a read brimming with action, comedic moments and the obligatory trench coat and fedora.

    29. Well writtenThe description says "Blade Runner meets The Maltese Falcon," but I would say it's more like " Blade Runner" meets " Maltese Falcon" meets "Monk". With lots of quirky characters and plenty of action, it definitely keeps you entertained!

    30. Old meets newI really enjoyed this book. The stories were quick and exciting. There wasn’t much detail with each case but the characters were exciting and fun. It was comedy and drama and adventure all rolled into one long book. Worth the price to read.
