Kim Harrison’s New Series…

newsIt must be the Thanksgiving/Christmas season that has book news coming to a slow crawl, but things have been deadly quiet on the updating front lately. Not much in the way of covers, or release dates, or anything of interest to post for a while now. But I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the blurb for the first book of the futuristic new trilogy heading our way from Kim Harrison. The first book will be called The Drafter, and it will be coming out next September 1st. It sounds interesting…

The Bourne Identity meets Minority Report in this first highly anticipated installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison’s sexy new romantic suspense trilogy, featuring a brilliant special task agent at the top of her field and set in a futuristic Detroit.

During a routine but dangerous Opti task, Peri Reed finds out her trusted partner has made her a corrupt agent. Her unique ability to jump back forty seconds in time to correct a mistake leaves her vulnerable when her partner, who is responsible for replacing her memory of the event, gives her a false one. But Peri lives and dies on her intuition, and she begins to piece her twisted reality together as she flees her one-time secure situation at Opti and tries to find the truth with a sullen but talented psychologist named Silas who works for the very agency trying to bring the Opti corruption to light.

With Howard, tech and med specialist, and Taf, gun-toting daughter of the apposing grass-roots agency, Silas and Peri try to rebuild her memory of the night she killed her partner, knowing it will put her mental stability in danger. Peri remembers, and thoughts of revenge keep her alive and moving forward as she tries to put an end to Opti, working with the very faction that wants to see her dead.

I am really looking forward to this one as a jumping-on point to read Kim Harrison, because God help me she is another one I haven’t read yet (I swear, I actually do read, just not as much as I would like). I don’t want to start the Rachel Morgan books (yet) because I have a few other 10+ book series already staring accusingly at me from the TBR pile, but if I can pick up the first book of this series it will give me an introduction to her writing without the pressure of a million other books already being available. A win/win. Anyone else going to check this out? What is your take on the Rachel Morgan books, do I need to get my ass in gear and move them further up the mountain?

    Her Rachel Morgan series was amazing! I was sad to see the end and keep hoping for a spin – off or more stories based in that world. I’m eager to see what she does with her new series and have already added it to my TBA list πŸ™‚ You should definitely move the Rachel Morgan series up on your TV list!!

      I actually thought I might pick up the first book in e-format as a Christmas gift to myself. Could get me started sooner than planned.

    You definitely should get on the Rachel Morgan series. I have read through book 6 or 7 I believe and am making it one of my goals to complete the series in 2015. I love it and the characters are great!

    I’m definitely adding this one to my TBR. I really enjoyed The Hollows. Took a few to get fully into it, but the later books were great! I agree with Skip πŸ™‚

    I gave up on the Hollow series, the h lead made me want to smack her and her vamp girlfriend too. That being said this sounds like it might be worth a try since it is a trilogy and more manageable series read.

    This new book , the drafter, looks interesting. I’ll pick it up. I tried to read the Rachel Morgan books but couldn’t get into them.
