In Yorktown, Nekos are as common as humans. These individuals with cat ears suffer the city’s worst: drugs, trafficking, and a corrupt police force. As social unrest and class divide fuels human and Neko conflict, most prepare for the powder keg to exploded. However, this is according to plan.
Private Investigator John Darcy stumbles into the conflict after meeting Amber Vallis, a Neko who is being stalked and threatened. John reluctantly agrees to take her case when his Neko assistant, Elle Brockman, pushes him to. Together, they begin to unravel a massive plot to ignite the social distress of the Neko people and instigate an uprising capable of bringing Yorktown to its knees.
Armed with only a strange symbol and Amber’s testimony, they race to connect Amber’s stalker to the mysterious plotters. Will John and Elle have time to put the pieces together and douse the fuse racing towards Yorktown's destruction?
Or, will their time be cut short, and the powder keg finally explode?
First, I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone for reading NekoPunk. I've been writing for a long time, but NekoPunk represents my first foray into writing a web novel as well as entering a writing competition. I am very excited to take on the challenge and do something different with my writing process.
I look forward to hearing everyone's feedback and opinions on the piece. As a writer, I have always avoided including my love for anime and manga, and NekoPunk really represents my first chance to "cut loose" with it all. I hope you will all enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
The plan is to upload 2-3 chapters every week with the novel set to finish before September.
NekoPunk will deal with darker themes. It should not go beyond what you would see in a standard crime drama. I wanted to offer this as a quick "heads up" to any who are uncomfortable with depictions of graphic violence or references to trafficking and assault.
