Today is the day! Deal with the Devil by Kit Rocha is out today! Those of you who’ve been around for a while have heard me rave about this book before, way back in April of last year (which, let’s be honest, feels like twenty years ago). We did a virtual back alley trade of Aurora Blazing for Deal with the Devil.
Best. Trade. Ever.
Do you like squads of badass women with superpowers? Do you like teams of badass, morally conflicted supersoldiers? Do you like road trips that smoosh the two groups together, with all of the delicious tension that brings?
OF COURSE YOU DO! 😍
Full disclosure: Bree and Donna (the duo behind Kit Rocha) and I are friends and we share an agent. But their book is incredible and you should definitely check out a sample at the very least. I mean, here’s the first line:
Nina had broken the cardinal rule, and now she had to kill someone.
That is a killer first line (pun absolutely intended).
I officially blurbed the book with my rave from so many moons ago: “Nina is everything I love in a heroine―smart and badass, but with a core of hope and kindness. And Knox is jaded, honorable, and so very conflicted. I loved it!”
Here’s more info:
Deal with the Devil is Orphan Black meets the post-apocalyptic Avengersby USA Today and New York Times bestselling author duo Kit Rocha.
Nina is an information broker with a mission—she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.
Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he’s fighting to survive.
They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process…
Or they could do the impossible: team up.
This is the first book in a near-future science fiction series with elements of romance.
