1 review about Rogue Hunter: Inquest

Space opera with a female bounty hunter

Action, politics, sex, drama, romance, temptation and more... this opening volume to a space opera series has it all, as bounty hunter Zyra Zanr pursues the lone male on a planet full of females, intending to hand him over to the galactic authorities for his crimes. But the locals would rather kill him themselves for the fault of being male. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, political and military forces gather for war.
Cool gangster dialog combines with well-timed revelations to give depth and background to the tale. The writing carries a self-conscious, space-operatic sense of scope, heavy-handed perhaps, but well-suited to the genre. And the complex relationships move as fast as spaceships with just as many threats.
Sensual love, in its various forms, is juxtaposed with carefully detailed violence. But the action-packed battle scenes are probably the strongest part of this novel. Bodies heal fast in a futuristic world, but hurt just as truly, while hearts are just as surely wounded. And the right deed can be hard to find behind flashes of emotion, politics and war.
A fast-moving tale with the feel of a graphic novel and the scope of intergalactic space opera, Kevis Hendrickson’s Inquest tells a complete story while leaving questions to fuel a whole new series with its intrepid female protagonist challenging evil in outer space.
