You wake up with enhanced strength, speed, and hearing superpowers. Would you rather use them to fight crime or be a ruthless mercenary?
#bookreadhappyhour | 9 July | They pull a knife, you pull a gun. | Happy Book Birthday to Null Set!
"I have superpowers, too," I said. "I use them."
"Yours are different. You don't...unmake people."
"No, they just underestimate me and then I kill them."
No really. This one.
I make absolutely no secret how much a fan I am of Cas Russell, the math genius with a penchant for being murdery and giving zero fucks. I’ve read the first book in this scifi thriller series, Zero Sum Game, three times, and I’ve already read the egalley for Null Set thanks to @torbooks , and I’m going to start a reread of it soon. Maybe today? Probably today.
So here’s a #JulyofScifi gush-athon in case you fancy some motivation:
Zero Sum Game was so my thing it backed its moving truck into my driveway. Its sequel, Null Set, has made itself at home, picking out paint colors and ordering Thai for dinner. Cas Russell, flawed, troubled, loyal AF, math-genius Cas has returned, and this time, she has a found family to care about as she makes one terrible decision after another in her attempt to Fight Crime™ and save Los Angeles from the fallout of book one. But her past is haunting her, quite literally, and might be her downfall unless she can figure out who to trust.👀
And now for my unsurprising answer to the QOTD: With my new enhanced powers, I think I’m sticking with mercenary. Vigilante justice doesn’t suit me, nor does it seem lucrative for the bank account either. I mean, I have to pay rent. LA is expensive!
Yeah, maybe I’ll just stick with writing. Much safer.
See ya, scoundrels.
