Cyberpunk fallen-angel Riko is back in KC Alexander's outrageous sequel to the savage Necrotech.
Being a mercenary isn't all it's cracked up to be. Especially when Riko's hard-won reputation has taken a hard dive into f--ked. Now she's fair game for every Tom, Dick, and Blow looking to score some cred.
In this city, credibility means everything - there's no room for excuses. She still doesn't know what she did to screw up so badly, and chasing every gone-cold lead is only making it worse. Without help and losing ground fast, Riko has a choice: break every rule of the street on her search for answers...or die trying.

My new fav series!!
Read her work in Masseffect and loved it. But this series is the next level! High speed, futuristic, bass ass imperfect main character. Very original profanity. Read both books in this series in one go. Can not wait for the next!!! Keep up the great work!

It looked like it was going somewhere...
OKay, so here we are. Book 2 in the Sinless series. Originally I thought (as mentioned in the NanoTech review- book 1) this was going to be a poorly written trilogy. And by checking out reviews of the written version of the book, many think there will be other books. And if you go by the amount of story progression we got in this book [it was more than the previous book, but not much more], there should be more books- but the amount the author would need to write to complete this story, I wouldn't want to read that mountain. Again the author fails to drive the story, you have a very flawed lead character who doesn't seem to actually want to resolve her problems but instead create more- this could be interesting but after nothing but this it gets annoying and frustrating. Every time there is hope for the story to progress, it takes multiple steps back. Overall this book is 12+ hours. 3-4 of that is just rehashing the first book when possible. Including details that make no difference in the story. So basically you have 9 hours of new material here, except much like the first book the author is describing things and trying to build a world instead of the characters or the story.
In the end this book does progress the story, but still fails to progress it with any real substance. She tries for a 'big' twist moment, then fails to deliver again- because hey why break the cycle. Plenty will see this ending as there should be a next book. I took it as putting us all out of our misery and giving a finality ending with a circle back to the first book trying to seem clever. I'm not sure if there is going to be a next book [the author admits she was 2 years late getting this one out], but even if there is, I won't be continuing on this ride despite wanting a good cyberpunk story.
