A great series on it’s own in the Renegade Universe. The Reaper is an interesting character who moves from being a hard nosed cold, unfeeling killer to one who starts to get a conscious. His concern for a young girl, in whom he sees aspects of himself, takes him from one adventure to another with the theme of finding a specialist in the field of his decaying manufactured body parts. Highly recommend.
Warning: some people might consider that there are spoilers in the following review so, be warned! I get rather tired of MCs who have everything against them, are nearly dying from their injuries and still defeat everyone who comes against them. This is a very convoluted plot with old enemies coming to an awkward entente to achieve a mutual goal. Everyone is after Elise. I can emote with her to a point but can’t understand her continued antagonism to Hal. Yes, he made a mistake when he left her but he’s more than made up for it by coming back and getting shot to hell in aiding her escape from the Union goons. Judging by the people she gathered around herself she must have a lovely side to her personality but, unfortunately, we’ve never seen it. I just hope that in the next book Hal actually gets his gear repaired because this ‘I’m dying but I’ll save you all’ is getting rather old! Only 3 stars.
