SFRB Recommends #15: Dragonfly by Erica Hayes #scifi #scifiromance #sfr

Dragonfly- by Erica Hayes

This week's recommendation comes from Rachel Leigh Smith:

Carrie Thatcher is a tough Imperial counter-terrorism agent. Her mission: pose as a sexy cyber-thief to entrap the notorious rebel Dragonfly, who’s planning a heist on the space station Casa de Esperanza – an orbital casino on the fringe of Imperial space.

And this assignment’s personal: Dragonfly murdered her closest friend, and she’s in no mood to show him mercy. Even getting stuck with the partner from hell—Malachite, her sociopathic ex-lover and the Empire’s most dangerous agent—can’t dampen her relish for the kill.

With Carrie’s expert weapons skills and penchant for cracking codes, insinuating herself into Dragonfly’s confidence should be easy. But is he the ruthless killer she was led to believe? Or has her precious Empire deceived her? With Malachite watching her every move, the slightest flinch in loyalty means death.

Carrie is soon racing to uncover an audacious treachery that will shock the Empire to its core … if she can stay alive for long enough to expose it.

I don't usually read first person books, and this one managed to not only catch my attention but KEEP it. The world Erica built is based on Russia being the dominant power. I love all things Russian, so this probably had a lot to do with why I enjoyed it so much.

I did go through my usual missing his point of view, but I'm weird like that. A very enjoyable read with unique worldbuilding and an interesting heroine.
