Immortal. Powerful. Bloodthirsty.

She doesn't age.

She doesn't die.

She can transform at will into a deadly beast.

But her immortality comes at a high price: she must kill to maintain her sanity, or else risk flying into a bloodthirsty rage.

Establishing herself as an assassin for hire, she only accepts contracts for targets who deserve to die. Her system works to keep the bloodlust at bay. Until she is hired for the grandest job yet.

Easy is a city overrun with violent, powerful gangs in post World War 3 America. Her contract is anything but easy: clean up the city and make it safe for civilians again. To accomplish this goal, she will have to turn the gangs against each other, while struggling to control her bloodlust … and her attraction to the sociopathic second-in-command of the most vicious gang in town.

Nothing in Easy is easy.

About the Author

Being an “army brat” meant moving around a lot. It was a good way to live, to see the world and continuously broaden my horizons: to start cultivating my creativity and fantasy. And grow it did. From an very early age I have always drawn and painted a lot, making my own version of what was around me. Starting off copying reality, I expanded into a personal kind of augmented reality. Adding fantasy to the mix didn’t however relieve me of natural boundaries: the physiology needed to be right. 4 arms means four shoulders, for me even fantasy needs to be anatomically correct. This craving to combine reality with fantasy formed the basis of a career in art. Blending realistic full portraits with fantasy or animals became my trademark, and I did quite well for myself. However, living off art is not an easy task, so practical as I am, I continued my never ending education, now in the area of Information technology. Yes I went into IT. Hey, a gal’s gotta live. Ideas and creativity will not be denied their due and the stories, previously visualized in paintings, bubbled up and wouldn’t go away. In the few quiet moments my busy life offered about 6 years ago, actual scenes started to unravel in my imagination. Random scenes, or so it seemed. It turned out they were all scenes from one story, one idea that my subconscious had already formed into a coherent story line: Primal Nature. I decided to write them down. But where to begin? I wrote the first 20 pages and the last 2 in one go. In the resulting years I have been filling in the gaps. One story led to a book, one book led to two, to three. To new and fascinating storylines that propelled me to write and write and write. I have found my passion. I want to tell stories. Not just any story. Stories that will entertain, but will hopefully also give room for thought. Will encourage the reader to join me on my journey to explore the boundaries of who we are, what we are, what we could be. If only we dream. If only we accept that the impossible is only improbable until someone proves that it exists. The world is a big place. Who is to say that what I dream, what I write, isn’t out there somewhere.

Wow! I really enjoyed reading this book. This is actually the first book I've read by this author, and even though it is the second book in the series, I was able to keep up with what was happening rather easily. Full of action and danger...this book is just what I needed to escape my regular reads. A woman shows up in a town packed with evil types...and leaves no name so she can avoid leaving a trail. With this story you get exposed to the way the darker side maintains an element of control in town, and you get to see just what 'Jess' is ready to do about it. The intimacy is without romance, which was a bit of a welcome change from my usual reads, and Jess is an absolute bad@$$ throughout this book. I would definitely recommend this read to anyone that is looking for a supernatural themed book with an edge.
