Rogue Hunter: Dark Space (Rogue Hunter #2) by Kevis Hendrickson

Shortly after her trial on New Venus, Zyra Zanr is captured by a team of rival bounty hunters and brought aboard their ship, the Lilith. They intend to take her to the planet Sojo, home of a powerful crime boss who nurses a grievance against her. Zyra fears for her life, knowing death awaits her at the end of the journey. Her captors' seething hatred of her leads to Zyra's horrifying torture.

Drugged, beaten, and near death, Zyra escapes her cell and is pursued. The enemy will stop at nothing to recapture her. Enraged by the abuse she has suffered, Zyra decides to turn the table on the Lilith's crew and show them why she is the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.

Last year, I read the first book in the Rogue Hunter series, Inquest.  I liked it and found it enjoyable.  But, Rogue Hunter: Dark Space took things to a whole other level.  Bad this enough that Zyra gets captured, but she's also tortured and Hendrickson doesn't pull any punches, pulling the reader into every nail-biting scene.  

Howver, Zyra is fighting for her life and the best way she knows how to do that is to fight back.  When that happens, everyone must watch out because no one is safe from her determination to live.  I could almost see the scenes playing out in my mind, they are so vividly detailed and the writing just draws you in into their world.  Not only is the novel set on a space ship, but the action is keen and the writing top-notch.  If you enjoy action-packed sci-fy novels, pick up  this series.  Dark Space can be read as a standalone, but I'd urge you to pick up the first book so you can enjoy the whole experience.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
