Kat and Mouse: Guns for Hire Review!

First book review! W00t!

So back in the beginning of May I went and Pimped some Awesomeness. I have now finished reading the book and I wanted to review it.

First, you can find the book here on Amazon and here's the description from the book:
2042. Bay City, California Free State.

Kat and Mouse are ronin--street mercenaries--who like cake runs. Simple jobs with quick and large payouts.

That's what these were supposed to be. Cake runs.

But when the Duo sign on, they suddenly find themselves targeted by a biker gang, a team of corporate commandos, a cybernetically-enhanced special ops agent, a stalker, a band of kidnappers, and a Japanese crime syndicate.

And they all want the Duo out of the way. Permanently.

Now these sassy sisters-in-arms must survive the onslaught and still get the jobs done. Because in the Biz, it's get paid or get dead.

As usual, Kat and Mouse are going to do things their way.

Heaven help Bay City.

Sounds totally awesome right? Yeah, that's because it is!

And here is the official review that I put on Amazon:
I was a new fan of Abner Senires' web series when I heard that the first season of this episodic joy ride was turned into a book. I got my copy on the Kindle and fell in love from word one.

Kat and Mouse make a great duo in the world of street mercenaries trying to make a living in the not-too-distant-future. Kat with her guns and Mouse with her pointy toys; they spend their time getting out of one dangerous situation only to be dropped into another.

Abner Senires' minimalistic writing style is superb. It's quick, precise and he never wastes a word, making this a fast and fun read. And yet, he is still able to create an easy to visualize world with fully developed and interesting characters.

The Kindle version is well formatted and I loved the links in the table of contents because it made it easy to go back and re-read my favorite parts.

Overall, I LOVED this book and I can't wait for the next installment of Kat and Mouse adventures.

So yeah, this book is epic and I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed it. I highly suggest that you read the book first (the Kindle version is only $3.99, paperback $12.95) and then read the rest on the Kat and Mouse website, starting here. I promise that you'll like it.
