Deal with the Devil Summary ✓ 8 À Orphan Black meets the post apocalyptic Avengers in the vein of Ilona Andrews’ Hidden Legacy series by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author duo Kit Rocha The United States went belly up 45 years ago when our power grid was wiped out Too few live in well protected isolation while the rest of us scrapIssion to bring hope to the darkest corners of Atlanta She and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to help those in need But altruism doesn’t pay the bills raiding vaults and collecting sensitive data is where the real money isKnox is a bitter battle weary supersoldier who leads the Silver Devils an elite strike suad that chose to go AWOL rather than slaughter innocents Before the Devils leave town for good they. Hmm I'm not sure what to think about this novel I was able to read a few chapters to develop a first impression That impression is a far cry from what I really think now that I've read the entire novelSure there's enough action in this dystopian sci fi novel There's also some humorous moments which lighten the dark moments that the characters have to endureWhat I found out of place were the r rated sex scenes Maybe there was a purpose to having them in the story but I found them to just flatten the mercenary action aspectDeal with the Devil is the first book in the Mercenary Librarians series For now I see a slight connection of the characters to being mercenary librarians But perhaps that connection will develop a lot in future installmentsRating it three stars I liked it vs my first impression of four stars I really liked it

Deal with the DevilNeed a biochem hacker to stabilize the experimental implants that grant their superhuman abilitiesThe problem Their hacker’s been kidnapped And the ransom for her return is Nina Knox has the perfect bait for a perfect trap a lost Library of Congress server The data could set Nina and her team up for yearsIf they live that longAt the Publisher's reuest this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software DRM applied. Mercenary Librarians Well this really called out to me If like me you've read the Beyond or the Riders series by this talented duo then this the first of a new series will definitely go on your shopping list Yes its dystopian which seems to be their forte and whilst perhaps not as erotic as some of their previous work it nevertheless was a very interesting start to the seriesNina is a perfect foil to Knox because she's full of heart and such an optimist who truly wants to help others Knox is a super soldier who has recently rebelled against his superiors although he is in an insidious position as he has to trick Nina but as he gets to know her that's getting much harder to do Yes this slightly futuristic storyline is definitely a winning format with great world building fabulous well developed characters and I'm already desperate to read This voluntary take is of a copy I reuested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair
