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 galaxy’s most dangerous assassins and her quest for vengeance. Entombed for twenty years, Raena Zacari has been found and released.
Thallian has been on the lam for the last fifteen years. He’s 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 Raena’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 whom first.
Alternatively, Gavin Sloane has spent the last twenty years trying to forget about Raena, whom he once saved and then lost to Thallian. Raena’s adopted sister, Ariel Shaad, has been running from the truth–about Raena, about herself, about Gavin–and doesn’t know if she’ll be able to face either of them.
The Dangerous Type mixes military science fiction with 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 ne’er-do-wells sprawled across a galaxy brimming with alien life, The Dangerous Type is a fantastic beginning to Loren Rhoads’s epic trilogy.

“Rhoads brings the style of grimdark fantasy to space opera.” — Publishers Weekly
“The story really takes off and races towards one of the more satisfying conclusions I’ve come across in years.” — Beauty in Ruins

My friend who lives in the next apartment building has a black belt in origami. Those paper dinosaurs she makes have some really pointy bits.
Hmmm, had to be the wonderful young woman I dated in college. She was a fantastic person who was sweet and kind, but had the cooking skills of a ninja assassin on a mission. I eventually offered to cook for her to repay her kindness. Eventually, I took over cooking duties.
