A post-apolypse world where warewolves are real, there is an official governmet agency to hunt and kill them, and religious ferver has created an Orwelian police state.
Kaidlyn Durant is an agent with the Federal Bureau of Human Safety tasked with hunting and killing warewolves in the Phoenix, AZ area. And she’s got the scars that go with the job.
Rainer is a warewolf and a computer hacker that never leaves the fortified bunker beneath his porn shop.
While Kaidlyn and the FBHS crew go about killing warewolves with impunity, Rainer watches from behind the scenes. His anger with the relentless and coldbloodedness of the FBHS spurs him to harrass the agency’s ‘Princess’ so he goes after her money, then has mountains of porn shipped to her Post Office Box, then he gets someone to break into her home where they find a banned book, the Federalist Papers.
Kaidlyn comes home and instantly knows that someone was there. She inspects and finds they’ve discovered her contraband, but there are no government boots breaking her door down. As she spends her days gunning down some of the world’s monsters, and trying to discover who’s hunting warewolves for their skins, she also plays a bit of cat and mouse with her unknown pursuer.
The characters the author creates are beliveable and also very cool. Kaidlyn is an alcoholic and a junkie who pisses everybody off at some point. However, she does have a softer side that we get to see just a bit of.
Rainer and his warewolf friends remind us that although warewolves are savage while ‘shedding’, they’re still humans who are infected with a disease.
The book is well paced with a good mix of action and narrative. It also switches first-person POV between Kaidlyn and Rainer and does a very good job of showing the reader the depth of both of these characters. Ultimately the meeting between Kaidlyn and Rainer happens and the outcome isn’t what you expected.
