This was a short little read that I picked up when it was free on Amazon. I love Ms. Adrian’s Midnight Breed series so I was curious when I saw that she wrote a futuristic paranormal romance.
The story is about a tough as nails female mercenary, Nisha the Heartless, who does any tough job she gets paid for. She has a reputation for being hard and cold particularly when it comes to the Strange- all the paranormals in the world.
Nisha’s latest assignment of transporting a shipment from the docks to a designated place goes awry when she learns what her shipment is. This puts her on the run and makes her re-think all that she has understood about herself and the Strange.
First of all, I was impressed with the way the backdrop and worldbuilding were told so that I grasped what was going on quickly. I found the spunky heroine someone I could root for as well as her love interest. The only thing that really disappointed me was that it was all over so fast. I loved where the story was going and truly wished it could have been a full-size novel or at least a novella. It was like just a sample taste that makes me want more with no more in sight. Hope she writes more about these characters and this world because I enjoyed it even with just the glimpse I got.
It is still an Amazon kindle freebie at the time I wrote this so it’s definitely worth the little teaser taste if you like the author or just futuristic paranormal romance in general.
