City of Kaus: Revenge
It has been three years since Elvira "Ellie" Ryder was betrayed by her best friend Cor and watched as her hometown of Kaus was leveled by invaders from a different Zone. Now sworn to seek revenge on him, Ellie has teamed up with her old friend Zach to find their long lost friend. After getting offered a bounty hunting job—really an assassination job—they find out that part of their payment is the whereabouts of Cor. Without hesitation Ellie and Zach take the job and make their way to the Human Zone to assassinate their target. As they make their way through the desert, and through the Human Zone, they are up against the prejudice of their kind—Kausian, a race that can shapeshift but always stand out with their golden eyes. Nevertheless, they never miss a mark—that is, unless they find out the truth about who destroyed their kind and how their target is right in the middle of it all. Will Ellie be able to forgive Cor after learning the truth? Or will she forever hold on to that hatred?
This is my first introduction to author, Dani Hoots. For which, this book did get me hooked and wanting to check out more books by this author. I am a fan of westerns and sci fi, so when you say western sci fi book; I say sign me up. Thus how I came to read Revenge by Dani Hoots. This book has a great cast of characters. Each character has an equal part in the overall storyline. Ellie is the only female presence. She is great. She has a take charge attitude and helps to keep the group focused on their mission. Zach who is Ellie's best friend might be my favorite. He brought comedic relief to the story. Then there is Cornelius aka Cor (Ellie's ex) and his new boyfriend, Gabe. They help to round out this group of four. The story does start out a bit slowly but does progress quicker the further you get into the storyline. With it really picking up momentum in the latter half of the story. I look forward to book two.
