This is the my first Kit Rocha book. Kit Rocha is the pseudonym of two friends that write great books together (Donna Herren and Bree Bridges). I did look up the backlist before jumping in. From what I found, this is a departure from the duo's usual books. This is not a romance. This is book one in a new science fiction series with a splash of romance. There are many other themes, like underdog against big corporation, redemption, family, and found family. This was a gritty dark book in a gritty dark world with slivers of hope- I loved it, but think you need to know what you are signing up for! And it's definitely a science fiction book- there are lots of technology and genetic enhancements.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series. We met a lot of characters and got glimpses of their stories in this book. There was a lot of world building and setting the stage for the series. This included a fair amount of action, including fight scenes, and a lot of engaging dialogue. I was totally on board and think it will make the next stories even better.

I received an advance copy of this book from a fellow reviewer. All opinions are mine.
