Publisher's Summary

On-the-run ex-agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in this second highly anticipated installment in New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison's new suspense trilogy, The Peri Reed Chronicles.

Peri Reed's job eats her mind, but for a special task agent in hiding, forgetting the past can be a blessing.

Betrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency that turned her into the very thing she fought against, Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self-doubt. But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who'd use her as a tool for their own success, she must choose to remain broken and vulnerable or return to the above-the-law power and prestige she once left: strong but without will, for whoever holds her next fix will hold her loyalty.

Yet even now, as then, a love based on lies of omission might still save her life.

Contains an excerpt from The Turn, Kim Harrison's stunning prequel to the Hollows series!

    "Disappointing"

    I have waited so long to come out. It was not worth the wait. This is such a disappointment. Peri spend most of the book screeching at people. Her comments are "I told you don’t call me, don't say that or a threat to do them bodily harm" The best is"I will not let you get in my mind'

    It reads like the author threw dices to decided which man Peri was going to like, love, hate or be in different to, it changed within minutes. Every man in the book is concern about her welfare and she can kick everyone’s ass.

    There is more time spent on the highway picking up or dropping of drugs. She is so impulsive with her decisions. She has a strong character, instead of getting off the drug, so starts injecting herself. One minute she cannot stand Jack and the next she needs him to help. She knows he wants to get in her pants so she ends up bitching at him.

    The best time is when Micheal goes psycho on his boss. He would take him to the brink of death and then drafted. The next best scene was when Peri was kicking ass in the first park of the book. I really wanted to like this book. There are a couple of new characters that I liked. I am a fan of Kim Harrison. But this falls way short from her usual stuff.

    I only gave it 2 stars because they at least had drafts that were good.

    "Wasted a credit"

    I love Kim Harrison and loved the concept of the Peri Reed series but this book was a disappointment. I gave it a chance after struggling to finish the first in the series and i can't even finish this one. It was bad! Not sure what could have made it better. I definitely am done with the Peri Reed series.

    "Good Story That Is Getting Overly Complicated"

    First of, yes, I did enjoy this book. But I can't help compare it to the Hallows books that Kim is famous for before this.

    When you think about it, it's a pretty similar sort of setup. A former "spook" defects and is on the run from seemingly everyone. What I like about it is the characters. What I don't like about it is that Perry's life, just like Rachael's, is getting more and more complex and generally going down a spiral. To me that is just not a good formula, and is why I eventually stopped reading the Hallows before that series concluded.

    Another book that this is very comparable to is "The Chemist", which I consider a far more satisfying story with a very similar setup and theme. The main difference is that The Chemist has a much tighter plot and also a much more satisfying resolution.

    Anyway, if you enjoyed the first book in this series, and Kim's other works, you are sure to like this one too, flaws and all.

    "Gonna be startin somethin!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Operator to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version but I would have put it down and come back to it if it wasn't for the fact that I did have audio book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Peri. She has now moved from 60% bad azz to about 80%. It irks me she is always telling herself that she'll remember something and then doesn't. There are so many agents that are jealous of her but they aren't hearing her when she says she wants out.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when she programs Michael's access to her vehicle! LOL


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Unfortunately, I have to stop comparing it to the Hollows series; this book is better than the first. I was panting for the witch/vampires...but this series is growing on me.
