Deal with the Devil is Orphan Black meets the post-apocalyptic Avengers by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author duo Kit Rocha.
Nina is an information broker with a mission–she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.
Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he’s fighting to survive.
They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process…
Or they could do the impossible: team up.
This is the first book in a near-future science fiction series with elements of romance.

“Evil wasn’t afraid of good. Because good people always expected evil to play by the rules, and by the time they realized the game had changed, evil had won.”
(3.5 / 5) This book grabbed me at “Mercenary Librarians.” Tell me more! Knowing that the book had mercenaries, I expected quite a bit of action. I was not disappointed! There was a lot of strategy and fighting and tough chick encounters.
We start off by meeting Nina and her squad of women that are tough and ruthless, caring and loyal. They are living in a crumbling America where they fight for those that can’t and try to make their lives better with food, a community and of course, books. Then we meet Knox and his group. They are battle-weary men running from their superiors because of their different beliefs.
I liked each group of characters and their devotion to each other. This book is very character-driven and you learn about each one, bringing in that extra element of suspense in their missions. The quick romance seemed to take over the story which made me a bit disappointed. Mercenary librarians says to me; tough, action packed, and fierce missions. I would have liked it more if it had been more so, with a light romance. It overpowered the missions and lessened the fierceness. I have high expectations for book 2 because many other reviews felt similarly to me about the romance.
