I thought this book would never come! After a short stint where I wasn’t sure this series was going to continue, I’m glad Kim Harrison got the chance to continue what she started in the first book of the series, THE DRAFTER.

This Peri Reed Chronicles series is vastly different from The Hollows. First off, it’s not Urban Fantasy, not really anyway. It’s more Sci Fi oriented, but I wouldn’t put it past Harrison to include some UF bits here and there because that’s what she does best.

Our heroine, Peri, has quite a lot going on in her life. She’s an ex-agent on the run, so you can just imagine the stuff she’s got trailing after her. Peri is a refreshing character because she’s quite practical. Although this series is far from being your typical Mystery, to me, it does have some characteristics of a good mystery and I feel like Peri’s character would very much fit in that genre as well. Despite all the twists and turns everywhere, she’s quite the level-headed and she thinks things out as best she can. I really like that about her character. Harrison has always written smart heroines but Peri really is an amazing one.

If you’re a fan of Richelle Mead’s Gameboard of the Gods series, then you’re absolutely going to fall in love with this one. I definitely sense that Harrison can go far with this new series.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I read the drafter and couldn’t even believe it was the same author as the hollows. It was choppy and I couldn’t connect with the characters at all.

That sucks. But I do agree that her voice is different in this series. It is def more sci fi.

I’m currently doing a reread via audio of The Drafter before starting The Operator. I need to have all the little deals back in my head. LOL
