Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I love Kim Harrison. I tore through her Hollows series and fell in love with that world all over again with her prequel. I read both of the Drafter novels that were published, and would reread them and buy the third if it ever gets published. I'm sad that it hasn't. I'm super pumped that she's got more Hollows in the works. Unfortuntely, it seems that the Hollows is where she shines, and, at least thus far, her more science fiction leaning books aren't as good as her urban fantasy. The Drafter was good, but nowhere near as good as her Hollows, and this standalone was an entertaining read, but it also didn't live up to her Hollows standards. In this one, I really liked her concept and her execution. The ending, though, didn't feel like much of a payoff after reading so much to build to that point. I feel like it was a little cliched with the potential of a nice twist that instead was left hanging. I enjoyed the book though, just by the end wasn't super excited about it when I know she's capable of much more as an author. I hope she finds her mojo again! 3 stars, recommended for those who like thriller-type stories where you're never sure if the protagonist is cray-cray or not.
