Debris (Veiled Worlds, Book 1)

Written by Jo Anderton

Average Score: 83(4)

Tanyana is among the highest ranking in her far-future society - a skilled pionner, able to use a mixture of ritual and innate talent to manipulate the particles that hold all matter together. But an accident brings her life crashing down around her ears. She is cast down amongst the lowest of the low, little more than a garbage collector. But who did this to her, and for what sinister purpose? Her quest to find out will take her to parts of the city she never knew existed, and open the door to a world she could never have imagined.

Anderton demonstrates a mastery of storytelling and world building in this series opener that is reminiscent of the visionary works of China Miéville. (Starred Review)

...the pacing wasn't too much of a bother; the characters were ultimately likable and there was enough in the plot to hold one's interest.

...while it's not perfect, Debris is a strong, exciting debut that took me by surprise with its unique setting, interesting main character, and powerful "fight your way back to the top" narrative.
