Overview
Set in the wake of a galaxy wide war and the destruction of a human empire, The Dangerous Type follows the awakening of one of the galaxies most dangerous assassins and her quest for vengeance. Entombed for twenty years, Reana has been found and released.

Thallian has been on the lam for the last fifteen years; a wanted war criminal whose entire family has been hunted down and murdered for their role in the galaxy wide genocide of the Templars. His name is the first on Reana's list, as he's the one that enslaved her, made her his assassin, and ultimate put her in a tomb. But Thallian is willing to risk everything--including his army of cloned sons--to capture her. Now it's a race to see who kills who first.

Alternatively, Gaven has spent the last twenty years trying to forget about Reana, who he once saved and then lost to the clutches of Thallian. Reana's adopted sister, Ariel, has been running from the truth: the one about Reana, about her and Gavin, and doesn't know if she'll be able to face either of them.

The Dangerous Type, a mix of military science fiction and an adventurous space opera that grabs you from the first pages and doesn't let go. Along with a supporting cast of smugglers, black market doctors, and other ner-do-wells sprawled across a galaxy brimming with alien life, The Dangerous Type is a fantastic beginning to Loren Roads' epic trilogy.

Rhoads launches an SF trilogy that seems determined to bring the style of grimdark fantasy to space opera, for better or worse. Far in the future, a grave-robbing expedition to the world of the Templars reveals that their strange science preserved the human assassin Reana when she was buried alive. She’s reunited with her lover Sloane, and they are soon pursued by her former master, the sadistic warlord Thallian. Thallian’s capacity for evil borders on moustache-twirling caricature: he rapes all three major female characters (including both his own wife and Reana’s other lover, Ariel), tortures his children in combat games, and is willing to kill anyone to get back what he views as his. Rhoads sometimes descends into lavish depictions of talent—beyond Reana’s perfection at killing and a handful of other talents, everyone in the book, from the underground doctor who heals her to the ragtag kids who help her steal a starship, is incredibly skilled—but the dark and brutal nature of her universe makes the well-choreographed action more painful than admirable. (July)
