Smashwords book reviews by Yianna Yiannacou

  • Rogue Hunter: Inquest on Jan. 10, 2013

    I received a free ARC e-book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I am going to start off by saying that I liked this book but did not love it. There were a few parts that I had to skip because I couldn’t care too much for it. This book is about a bounty hunter named Zyra Zanr who ventures to New Venus to retrieve a notorious terrorist/ex-lover, Boris Skringler. She is one of those women you just don’t want to mess with. I wouldn’t want to be in a fight with her, for I know I would lose. Zyra goes to New Venus’ Queen and asks to have Boris in her custody but the Queen denies her. The law in New Venus is that no men are allowed. The Queen is like a pissed off preschooler. ‘No boys in this clubhouse!’ Anyway, so the sentence for men on their planet is death. Harsh, but those are the laws. Boris tried to hide away on New Venus but got caught and now Zyra wants to bring him back to the InterGalactic Alliance to retrieve the bounty that is on his head. Zyra figured she could start a new life with her girlfriend and stop bounty hunting with the money she would receive for that mission. She is determined to capture him, but things don’t go as planned. She decides to break him out of New Venus’ jail and when he betrays her, she ends up in jail. I would say read to find out what happens, but I’m not too sure if I would recommend this book. When I first started reading this book I knew Zyra was bad ass, but I wish she would have done something to Boris sooner. She needed him captured but I felt like she gave into him too easily and lost too many chances she had at him. That aggravated me. There are some parts in this book where you just know it was written by a man because the mumbo jumbo of all the space galactic lasers and switches and space ships and bombs could not come from a woman. I skipped over the parts where they spoke of radiators and bombing the enemy ships. That kind of story is just not for me, but definitely for other people. Some parts where she was going after Boris were a bit confusing when they were underground in the Garbage disposal area or something. I don’t know. Over the rest was a good story line, but JUST good. It has me a bit intrigued to see what happens in the next book, even though I will probably not read it. That’s all.
