Dragon's Teeth by Suzanne Van Rooyen, is a futuristic scifi that the author describes as a "cyberpunk/dystopian noir". I have to say that it is not my usual read, but I really enjoyed this and would recommend it without hesitation to scifi fans and anyone else for that matter.

The novel is set in a dystopian future, where people flock to "polycarbonate bubble" suburbias like New Arcadia, while the atmosphere undergoes a "Sky Rejuvenation Program". The story focuses on the central character of Cyrus, a detective with a penchant for fedoras, trench coats and "replica Cuban cigars". In a world where DNA is everything, Cyrus takes on a case to investigate the biological parentage of Benji MacDowell - the heir to a large eugenics company. The novel goes back and forth between the past and the present, until the mystery of MacDowell's heritage is revealed. But, as Cyrus comes close to solving the case he must face some ghosts from his own past.

While I found the beginning a little (just a little) slow, I quickly became very attached to this novel. The story is very intriguing. It has fantastic action, suspense, mystery and humour. The more I read the better it got and I found myself frequently thinking "god, this is good!"

What I liked most about it was our reluctant hero, Cyrus, who likes coffee and cigars for breakfast. Cyrus, in some ways, is a stereotypical detective, especially with that fedora and trench coat! But, I like this about him. We get the sense that Cyrus has been around the traps, he has a cynicism and a world-wariness. He is ultra street-wise and we have confidence in him to solve the case. He has a soft side though, and Van Rooyen shows this in a delightful way through his interactions with his only friend, his cat Cora.

So, I'll start the review with: Wow! What just happened!
Amazing book.
Couldn't find any spelling/editing errors.
Loved the names Zia and Nur-they are words used in Urdu, of course!
the story flowed beautifully.
the title of the book does connect with the story but the connection needs to be made more obvious.
i knew by the tone of the story that there wasn't going to be a HEA but found the ending perfect.

I sincerely enjoyed reading Dragon's Teeth. It flowed smoothly between the two time-points portrayed and depicted the characters' growth in an engaging manner. The rawness of the situations in which the protagonist found himself transferred well and I felt a myriad of emotions whilst witnessing the mystery unravel. I would definitely recommend this book from a fresh and exciting new author. Enjoy!

Was drawn into the storyline so deeply I felt a bit sad when I finished the last page. Loved every page !
