The only thing worse than war is revolution. Especially when you're already losing the war...Nyx used to be a bel dame, a government-funded assassin with a talent for cutting off heads for cash. Now she's babysitting diplomats to make ends meet and longing for the days when killing was a lot more honorable. When Nyx's former bel dame "sisters" lead a coup against the government that threatens to plunge the country into civil war, Nyx is tasked with bringing them in. The hunt takes Nyx and her inglorious team of mercenaries to one of the richest, most peaceful, and most contaminated places on the planet - a country wholly unprepared to host a battle waged by the world's deadliest assassins. In a rotten nation of sweet-tongued politicians, giant bugs, and renegade shape shifters, Nyx will forge unlikely allies and rekindle old acquaintances. And the bodies she leaves scattered across the continent this time... may include her own.Because no matter where you go or how far you run in this world, one thing is certain: the bloody bel dames will find you.

The twist in Kameron Hurley's Muslim world is the women dominate and the men are practically tools for sex.The first 40% of this book ...
I look for reasons not to give books five stars, because it's not something I want to hand out to just anything, even if I like it. Five stars means the book has something special. This book has something special.I really liked the first book in the series, God's War, but I struggled a bit with some...
I can’t recommend Infidel as enthusiastically as I do its predecessor, God's War, because it suffers from the middle-book-of-a-trilogy syndrome: It doesn’t go anywhere, and reads a bit too much like filler. I hope that the final book in the series, Rapture, will restore the energy that carried God’s...
