5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pleased as punch to see this author keep improving 12 janvier 2013

There are at least three layers in this novel. One is the story of Zyra Zanr, an independent bounty hunter, who travels to New Venus to try and extradite to InterGalactic Alliance Boris Skringler, a terrorist, her teacher, and ex-lover. As you can see, this is a giant can of worms wrapped in dynamite that Zyra has to open. The government of New Venus is not cooperating so, Zyra decides to take matters into her own hands but while springing Boris from the jail where he is awaiting his execution on charges of being a male on a planet of females, things go wrong and Zyra is captured. Now, she is facing a death penalty and Boris is at large.

This is how the beginning of the story, more or less. For about a third of the book, Zyra's trial and flashbacks bring us up to date with what is happening, until the storyline catches up and things start progressing more linearly.

These flashbacks; Boris; Mikaela Darr, Zyra's more-than-just-a-friend; and Zyra's own contemplation about her life and choices she's made, represent the second layer in this book that allows us to get to know the main character, her past, and some of her motivations.

And the last layer is the backdrop of a political and military struggle between InterGalactic Alliance, Legion of Worlds, and an independent New Venus that is either a desirable ally or a potential enemy to fear to both above mentioned superpowers. This makes the storyline more interesting to those of us who are into the space opera genre and hopefully, in the future instalments, a larger picture of this particular Universe will be presented in much more detail. Without giving any spoilers, I would just like to mention that I am still not really clear as to Zyra's possible connection with the Alliance; I think the ending deserves a little more clarification.

A note about the action scenes - there are aplenty here, just like one would expect - hand to hand combat, escapes, even a space battle. My only criticism here is that as the action kicks in, the description gets wordier somewhat. For my taste, I would prefer the action move a little faster, not hindered with flashy description. However, it is simply my personal preference and can I see how perhaps focusing on a scene like that would appeal to many readers.

One more thing I'd like to mention - I've read previous works of this author and I am really impressed with how his writing craft has improved over such a short period of time. He always writes entertaining stories but now, with this novel, he is showing us that his books are fast approaching a commercial-grade material. This is a solid 4.5 stars at least.

This was a fun, fast paced read!

This is the first book of Kevis Hendrickson's that I have read. When asked if I was interested in a copy for review I was literally looking for more science fiction to add to my reading stack and jumped at the opportunity to read this one.

I enjoyed the focus on women. Women's rights, and the society they had built on New Venus and able to procreate and continue on in a society of only women. But the real focus here is Zyra and her quest to capture Skringler. As a bounty hunter, there is a price on his head and if she returns him, there is an award to be gained. One that she needs pretty badly.

Although the author takes a bit more of an adult edge to the story, it's really not more than just some make out scenes. Nothing to lustful or uncomfortable, it's still pretty tame.

The idea is for her to capture Skringler who has gone to New Venus in the disguise as a woman (only women allowed) but was caught. In her pursuit to get her hands on him, she herself captured and put in a cell to be questioned on what her motives are. The authorities will not let Skringler go as they have other plans...the anticipated war is upon New Venus. Time has run short and chances of escape is slim.

With the anticipation of the war upon New Venus the authorities are on high alert. The prisoners are heavily guarded and every woman is needed to fight. The story is very fast paced, engaging and imaginative. I was pleasantly surprised by the detail of how the women ended up there, how they continue to procreate and survive without the need of men.

War is upon them and they fight back!

Synopsis: LUST AND FURY COLLIDE IN A GALAXY ON THE VERGE OF WAR.

Fearing retribution from ruthless gangsters over an unsettled debt, intergalactic bounty hunter Zyra Zanr ventures to a distant world to collect the reward for Boris Skringler, a notorious terrorist, who has been sentenced to death by political rivals of the InterGalactic Alliance. When she fails to secure his release, she decides to break him out of prison. Zyra soon finds herself an unwilling participant in events that lead to a climactic showdown between the most powerful worlds in the galaxy.

Torn between her desperation to rid herself of the threats to her life and her guilt in agitating the conflict between two galactic superpowers, Zyra is horrified to learn that the lives of an entire world of people hinge on her ability to return Skringler to his captors. However, her distrust of Skringler gives way to lust, unraveling her plans. Will Zyra give into her passion and allow Skringler to go free? Or will she surrender him to her enemies to stop an impending war? The fate of billions depend on whether she chooses life for a killer or the death of her lover.

My Thoughts: This book is a reworking of Kevis Hendrickson's previous Rogue Hunter books, moving us back and time and starting from a younger age with Zyra Zanr.

There are occasionally over-clever word choices used, I presume, in an attempt to avoid overuse of more prosaic terms. However, this is otherwise an engaging story. It's wonderfully refreshing to read a book with a bisexual female protagonist of the more realistic sort, albeit still gorgeous and feminine yet super strong...

This is space opera in the truest sense - lots of drama, lots of action and an almost impossibly fast face. Not to mention layers within layers within layers ... and not to mention a cliffhanger ending leaving us waiting for more. So, if you're looking for a new space opera, if you were a fan of the previous books, if you enjoy lighter science fiction, check this one out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I snaked this book out from the other girls when it came in because I’ve been longing for a good sci-fi story 30 décembre 2014
Par Marisol A. Dunham - Publié sur Amazon.com

As reviewed on Indie Books R Us:

I snaked this book out from the other girls when it came in because I’ve been longing for a good sci-fi story. Sci-fi generally tends to fall into either the hard sci-fi, which also tend to be longer and slower, and space opera, which is almost always tends to be action adventure. Pew pew lasers!

I’m happy to say that Rogue Hunter Inquest falls into the latter. I love a good, deep book, but it’s been a sunny spring in Australia, and I don’t feel like anything too heavy. I just want a good story – and that is exactly what Inquest gives.

We follow bounty hunter Zyra Zanr on a planet that’s ruled by women and for women only (New Venus, if you’re curious). Any man who steps foot on it will die, without exception. And Zyra, who’s in love with a citizen on the planet, decides to risk a promised happy future with Mikaela because she’s wanted off planet, and no amount of hiding will save her from her debts. Granted, I felt like this was a little flimsy, mostly because I felt like there was a whole backstory here that could have helped me understand her train of thought better, I still could accept her reasoning.

The part I found hard to accept was the rest of her reasoning about why she was saving an all-around scumbag from death. It initially felt like she didn’t have a really logical reason, but as the situation unravelled, I felt it was better explained. I think a bit more headspace with Zyra would’ve cleared this up sooner. Part of this might also be because this is a reboot of a previous series. As a new reader, I don’t have an understanding of this world at all, and just a teensy bit more in terms of headspace would’ve given me a well-rounded story.

Still, this story promises one heady conflict, and it delivers. No one is in a position to fully trust anyone else, and the execution is just an excuse to force to hand of – well, I don’t want to give too much away, but let’s say there’s a lot of subversive ploys. With a healthy dose of pew pew, my favourite type of sci-fi.

If you want a quick, fun read, I highly recommend this. The on-going series promises to be fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Leaves you rooting for the underdog in Zyra Zanr as she goes through an internal battle whilst intergalactic bounty hunting 19 août 2014
Par Brittany - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Rogue Hunter: Inquest is a book written by Kevis Hendrickson. It is the first in the Rogue Hunter series and centers around a galactic bounty hunter named Zyra Zanr.

Rogue Hunter is a Sci-Fi novel that starts out with a news bulletin that states that the wanted killer Boris Skringler has been captured in New Venus. The bounty hunter Zyra Zanr went to retrieve him and was also captured, who is now believed to be dead.

It took me about 4% of the book to figure out what was going on… and then I couldn’t put the book down. I lost sleep I got so into the story. It is not just any book that can possess a reader in the way that Rogue Hunter:Inquest had with me. I loved about 85=90% of the story. But when the galactic battle began, I felt like the visualization and character connection was all of a sudden missing. There were all these names of ships, but not a good idea of the size or capability of them. Also the new players on the scene in the battle had little descriptors that stood out, except for their eyes.

Overall, the flow of this book was exquisite. I loved that Kevis was not afraid to push the envelope and that Zanr was not choosy in the sex of her heart’s desire. There was not a lot of background in the beginning, but flashbacks filled the reader in on what brought Zanr to the present predicament. It was easy to connect with Zanr and root for her. The ending was one of those “please don’t let it be true…” sort of endings that left me wanting more from this series.

I give this book a 4.5/5 stars. If it wasn’t for the jumble of the battle I would give it a 5/5 either way for site review purposes, it deserves to be rounded up to a 5. For a book that I cannot put down in my busy lifestyle that is saying a lot about the story telling ability of the author. I highly recommend this book as an entertaining read. It is most suitable for people who enjoy sci-fi, romance, intrigue, betrayal, suspense, unsavory characters, fiction, woman-empowering, etc.
