Description

Blood runs pink. 

The Hunger Games meets GLOW in this bloody mess of a sport story.

When a bankrupt armorer ends up owning a second-rate jugger player, he decides to go for it. But will he manage to even turn a profit when he knows little about the game and its seedy world, when the opponents play dirty on and off the field, and when the game's popularity grows with every player injury and death?

Do you want to watch the bloody game of Cyberpink? Do you want to meet Pickle Pie? Then listen to this exciting story where popularity is queen and blood runs pink.

A Different Sci-Fi Story

I have listened to several of George Saoulidis' stories and I can't get enough. I love his writing style. He's doesn't write the typical Sci-Fi. His work usually has, and this does, humor, action, and a unique look at a futuristic world. If you enjoy Sci-Fi then you really should check this author, you won't be sorry! The narration by Luke Rounda is very well done. He adds sound effects and really gives each character their own voices. I thought he really helped the story to come alive and more enjoyable.

I love this book!!

I found this book to be quite entertaining. The characters all were at a little bit crazy. The Narrator did very good with the different voices per character. That was somewhat funny also. I recommend this audiobook. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

trippy fun trip

This book was a good time around. There is very little explained in the beginning but just go with it and except the insanity. By the time you've got your bearings you'll find yourself rooting for the home team and betting on Pink.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great story, narration

When I first started the book I thought I was going to hate it. The narrator isn't as animated with some of his readings as others, but the other audio engineering that went in to this was awesome. There's lots of sound effects that go with it and I got really into the book after 30 minutes. The story was unique, I really enjoyed it and I am happy I got to listen to this. I rated the performance a 4, but really it's like 4.5

The story is based off a blood sport fighter, Pickle, and her indebted armor-crafter owner. He works with Pickle to get her up to fighting shape in a sport he knows nothing about after accidentally owning her. They work together in order to both make money and keep their butts on the correct side of the ground.

I did get to listen to this for free after I was offered a credit for this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

Again a fantastic story - and a bit longer, yea!

I've not known the works of Mr. Saoulidis very long but I'm rapidly becoming a fan. There hasn't been a story yet I don't like, and this one is no exception.

The story takes place against the background of Saoulidis's God Complex universe, an alternative earth timeline where the ancient Greek gods are alive and kicking but usually don't play a major part in the stories themselves. Cyberpink is a brutal sport-slash-game, played only by female athletes who're all in a modern version of a slave-owner relationship, based on financial debt.

Our MC is beautifully fleshed out, with flaws and of course some heroic traits. I really like how Saoulidis subtly does away with the nowadays evermore encroaching idea of 'toxic masculinity' and emasculating femininity. He sketches a very balanced view on male and female roles and traits, talents and flaws, strengths, weaknesses, actions and reactions.
And puts all of it together in an awesome story, even managing to add some sex and violence without them being gratuitous.

Very well done, again.
So glad this one is an actual novella instead of only a short story. Still pining for a deliciously long novel though!

Definitely recommend!

Amazing Story and Narration

Pickle Pie was different from anything I’ve listened to before, and I enjoyed the wild, sexy, and at times brutal ride of cyberpink. From the very beginning I was engrossed in the story and I can't wait to know what happens next.

Luke Rounda did an amazing job. I loved how he changed voices for each character and even adding sounds to the story was a nice touch.

Cyber ”pink”?! WTF?!?!

I was sent this audiobook by the author for an honest review.

Don't let my title of my review scare you. I loved this audiobook! ”Pinkie Pie” is a cyberpunk story where certain characters in the story participate in ”cyberpink”, an all-female blood sport that combines gladiatorial elements and just all around sexiness of the female fighters. This book focuses on Hector who just recently acquired the ownership of one of the fighters, Patty. I don't want to give a lot of the story away, but the story has friendship, humor, action, sexiness, and the sexiness was not overdone. It's a seedy underworld, and Hector has to go through the ranks with Patty if they are to survive.

I can't wait for the next audiobook. It was well narrated and the story like I said was great!

What a blast...

I'm not a sports-lit fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I am definitely a SciFi/Fantasy genre geek, and when SF and sports intersected in Pickle Pie, I amazed myself by really liking it! There have been books like John Scalzi's Head On, or the short story, Z Ball by Will Swardstrom, and of course Seanan McGuire's stories about Roller Derby (found in her InCryptid series) that make my heart run fast, but those are the exceptions for me, not the rule... This book is one of those Glorious exceptions!
The game is informally called Cyberpinks, after the nickname for the players, the young women who play the game, and often end up bleeding (or worse) as a consequence... and all of them, cybernetically enhanced!   There's plenty of violence and gore, but it never seemed to tip too far into the excessively graphic, and I'm a relative light-weight about that stuff!
Luke Rounda proved to be a fine narrator too. I hope to hear more from him in the future!  I'm currently waiting for the next book in the series (Cherry Pie) to hit audible. It should be a blast!
