Deal with the Devil is the first book in a sci-fi/fantasy romance series by two authors who write under the pseudonym, Kit Rocha.
America is in ruins after a series of flares wipe out entire cities and their populations. Nina and her group of mercenary librarians and archivists are carving out their own piece of paradise and building a community. They like everything the way it is, but it’s disrupted when a group of modified super soldiers asks for their help in uncovering the Rogue Library of Congress (RLOC).
What librarian could resist that, I ask you? (not I!).
Only Knox and his soldiers have a secret mission and getting Nina and the others to come along willingly is their only option. Not an easy task with them living off the grid and their enhancements on the fritz. And then there’s the fact that Knox might just be falling for Nina, too.
This post-apocalyptic world is well drawn with spunky characters who interact with a lot of humor, spirited sparring, and witty dialogue. This road trip romance also has plenty of mystery and adventure as they travel through ravaged land defeating their inner and outer demons. The romance plays a big part in this book and future pairings for the other characters are hinted at in books to come.
This book is recommended for anyone who loves libraries, secret missions, and survival tales.
Deal with the Devil is available in the library’s physical collection and is available as an ebook in the Oklahoma Virtual Library. Call us at 580-234-6313 to place a hold.
