Publisher's Summary

There are thousands of bounty hunters across the galaxy. Solid professionals that take jobs based on the credits the bounties afford. They follow the letter of the law so they can maximize those credits.
Licensed, bonded, legal.
Then there's Roak.
Deadly, unstoppable, invisible.
No criminal or military records. No files or folders with his name on them. No cybernetic implants to track. No proof he even exists except for a reputation for getting the job done. Roak is the bounty hunter called when someone is looking for the opposite of licensed, bonded, legal.
Now someone has ignored his reputation and made a very big mistake.
Double-crossed and left to die, Roak survives and sets out to exact vengeance and get paid what he is owed.
But he's not unreasonable.
While his fee may have just gone up, the bloody, brutal revenge is on the house.

"Just pay me what you owe me"

4.5 out of 5 stars

I don't know why I can't shake this feeling. Roak reminded me of Guardians of the Galaxy, the main character had the same cocky demeanor while still getting the job done. The comparison stops at the main character, though, this was much bloodier and much more violent than that film.

Roak was a really enjoyable main character to follow around. He has his own style and does things for no-nonsense reasons. He gets the job done efficiently and as quickly as possible. He's a great bounty hunter who is self-admittedly a little broken.

The story itself was really enjoyable. The first part, the reader isn't really sure who Roak is or why he's doing the things he's doing. But after a little while, we quickly figure out who he is and what makes him tick. The cast of characters he meets along the way to getting paid range from completely insane to really enjoyable.

This was an intergalactic thrill ride with elements for a lot of different readers.

Andrew B. Wehrlen does a great job narrating this, allowing this fast-paced story to play out quickly. I really enjoyed his narration and will continue to support books narrated by him.

I was given a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review in any way.

Ok but not great

Not a bad book but also not great.
It reads like a young adult book but with a bit much violence for kids to read.
