The book is action packed, but there was a point in the middle where the story lagged a bit for me. I guessed one of the plot points before it was revealed, but there were many others that I didn't suspect until the author revealed them. I liked that Rath was a bit of a bumbler and that the killing bothered him. Thinking outside the box seems to be what keeps Rath alive.
Pretty much pre-ordered the rest. Best mathematical formula for this book: Bladerunner + Borne Identity divided by Dollhouse x The Forever War with a dash of The Running Man via S. King, mix it into one octane sized blender and you have a reader that already pre-ordered the rest of them.
Basically if you love sci fi, give this book a chance or sample download, who knows? Maybe you will like it as much as I did.
Heck if you loved older movies like "Escape from New York" or "Logan's Run" this thing might be right up your alley. Very gritty but oh so good!
The core idea of the book is a great twist on the normal "society of assassins" and organized underworld tropes. Instead of the standard honor among killers/thieves approach, this book takes a bleaker but realistic view. Very interesting cast of characters and our main protagonist is not super-man or a Mary Sue. Worth checking out for both fans of SF and Thrillers/Crime stories.
Cybernetically enhanced assassins in a high tech, space traveling future. The galaxy has been rid of major organized crime by a united interstellar police force, except for one super secretive 'guild' of assassins, operating under the radar.
The story line is compelling and this was one of the few books in a while where I've gone out and bought the sequel before I finished this book.
The author has developed a storyline that is full of intrigue and suspense. It has non-stop action and adventure. The fast pace, makes it fun to read and never boring. With all its plot twist and turns you have to stay on your toes to keep up. I found it to be a fun and easy read.
Piers Platt's characters are realistic and down to earth. I like when I can identify with a character and get behind them in the story. This made for a great story to get into.
I really liked Rath's Deception by Piers Platt and I highly recommend this book to all readers.
