Zoo City by Lauren Beukes


In an alternate South Africa, criminals are bound to sort of spirit animals after comitting crimes, which grants them special abilities but also brands them as criminals to the rest of the world. Lauren Beukes is one of the rising stars of sci-fi and fantasy, and for good reason. Zoo City is one of the most creative fantasy novels in a long time.
