    Tulpa Uprising sets a tone that seems to follow the basics of the cyberpunk genre in its opening chapters. The protagonist is down on their luck, from the underclasses, and out in competition with her fellows to find work to keep on going another day. However it takes quite a turn when her latest job has her wind up a pilot (rider) of a Tulpa, a large bipedal war machine employed by a faction intent on wresting control of the earth away from the wealthy elite of mars.

This to me is what helps offset the setting of a story I'd otherwise not get into. I am tired personally of ***sack worlds. The grimdark narratives that can leave a bad taste in one's mouth. What Tulpa Uprising does is gives a fighting chance to the downtrodden. Not only that but the story reflects on themse of coming together despite the adversity, or in desperation because of it. That is, bridging the distances of alienation. Even between the Tulpa Kitsune and Megan, the interpersonal distances draw close as machine and woman become less alienated from one another. I've a particular liking to the character of Ross. On a whole a nicely rounded character. Environmentally minded, but blinded by his privilage of wealth. Dedicated to a cause yet struggling with identifying it more than a personal project. Even his position as captain is challenged and he works with it, as the challenge comes not against a matter of the responsabilities as captain, but from the privilages assumed of the rank. Tulpa Uprising is long on exposition, but it paints a concrete image of the Earth/Mars Rich/Poor Boss/Worker relationship. The exposition is broken up with good moments of interpersonal interaction between characters, and rather vivid and fierce action. As a fan of the giant robot grene as a whole, it's nice to see the mythical references used for machines in the setting branch out from the typically overused pseudo-japanese or christian influences (though they are still there). Sometimes simple animal names are used. Other times however the heaviest influence of Hinduism is found in much of the material referencing ships, robots, etc, giving this work a fresh angle. I'd reccomend this book to young adult readers, and adult ones who feel overasturated with grittier (adult) works. I'd certainly reccomend it to those who enjoy a tale with a strong female lead.
