Fearing retribution from ruthless gangsters over an unsettled debt, intergalactic bounty hunter Zyra Zanr ventures to a distant world to collect the reward for Boris Skringler, a notorious terrorist, who has been sentenced to death by political rivals of the InterGalactic Alliance. When she fails to secure his release, she decides to break him out of prison. Zyra soon finds herself an unwilling participant in events that lead to a climactic showdown between the most powerful worlds in the galaxy.
Torn between her desperation to rid herself of the threats to her life and her guilt in agitating the conflict between two galactic superpowers, Zyra is horrified to learn that the lives of an entire world of people hinge on her ability to return Skringler to his captors. However, her distrust of Skringler gives way to lust, unraveling her plans. Will Zyra give into her passion and allow Skringler to go free? Or will she surrender him to her enemies to stop an impending war? The fate of billions depend on whether she chooses life for a killer or the death of her lover.
I was given an ARC of Rogue Hunter: Inquest from the author to review this book. It in no way alters my review of it.I gave this book 4 stars because of a slow start. My biggest thing I want when reading a book is being enthralled right away. Though it made me curious enough to continue on it didn't really get me until about half way through. After that point I found myself staying up late just to read a little bit more to find out what was going to happen.
Having never read any of the other Rogue Hunter series I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to understand what was going on. That wasn't the case at all. Infact, the author has redone the series, so this group is actually seperate from anyothers you may see out there.
There was enough back story in Inquest to help the me and any reader understand a little bit about Zyra's past with the people in her life. That being said, the scenes didn't jump around too much and it the book was pretty easy to follow. Kevis also did an amazing job at bringing the world to life with visualization and person to person connection. I felt like I was right there following along with Zyra.
Though the synopsis states that there is a lust between her and Skringler (when I first started to read the moments between them I even kind of rooted for that fact because I love to read about bad boys) it is not as strong as it would appear. The fact is Zyra is in love with a woman named Mikaela who lives on an all women planet. So with that there is some woman to woman moments.
There was really no swearing and the intimate scenes were not too descriptive but they were enough for me to state my age range as 16+. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read what happens next.
