Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her to use her body as a weapon, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run. Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote. When Peri discovers her name is on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. Her memory of the previous three years erased, she joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her fateful final task. Her motto has always been only to kill those who kill her first. But with nothing but intuition to guide her, will she have to break her own rule to survive?

Kim Harrison,  an established author has written a series I was very fond of, THE HOLLOWS.This book, THE DRAFTER, was quite a bit different. The writing was very good but I had a little trouble with Peri Reed.  I just couldn't like Peri Reed.  I guess I got so hooked on THE HOLLOWS series that I'm expecting the same.  These are different characters with different traits.  I'm not used to third person views.  It just felt uncomfortable.  That isn't the book, it's me. I think the theme of drafting was different and interesting, although I'm not into time travel much.  I believe the character Peri Reed kept being placed back, as though she got the message and she needed to straighten up.  Wouldn't it be nice, if all your mistakes could be reset?  It might make for some perfect people. After the second time of reading through her being paranoid and mixed up, I didn't want any more. It became boring. I had a hard time getting through the book.  It was a struggle.   This is just my own personal opinion.  I just didn't find it as good as the other books the author has written. There is always Book Two.  Might give it a try. Grab a copy and decide what you think?  Everybody has their own opinion.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Kim Harrison and PUYB, in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
