So excited there will be a limited run of hardcovers for The Operator including ones signed by Kim herself See link for details Operator the second installment in the Peri Reed Chronicles really showcases the immense talent of Kim Harrison This series is uite different than her beloved Hollows series but it's certainly got the bones to be just as good as that series Filled with futuristic gadgetry shadowy government factions and double agents aplenty it's really difficult to tell at times who can be trusted Much like Peri even I have a hard time accepting many of the characters at face value Having been betrayed on every level in the previous book Peri is once again thrust into the world she wanted desperately to leave behind And of course the people who betrayed her are at the center of it all Promising a drug that can stop memory loss during a draft Peri is lured right back in much like her enemies knew she would be Still dealing with huge chunks of lost time from her stint in OPTI the drug holds uite a lot of appeal for Peri So does the job for that matter Although she's broken away from the shady government agency the danger and the money and the power still call her name Add a memory retaining drug to the mix and it'll take a miracle to keep Peri away It should be no secret by now that I love this series and I love Peri Reed As I said before it's so completely different than anything Kim Harrison has written before Not only that but the series is sheer brilliance With a story centering around memory loss and time lapses and hallucinations it's not an easy series to grasp in the moment I'm often left feeling just as confused as Peri is but Harrison deftly pulls all the threads together and slowly knits everything into one cohesive picture That's not an easy feat not at all and especially when weaving in so many past events into the current story All in all The Operator was a fantastic second installment in the Peri Reed Chronicles Highly recommended and I can't wait to see what she brings to the table with the third installment of this serieseARC received via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion

Be a blessingBetrayed by the man she thought she loved and the agency who turned her into the very thing she fought against Peri abandoned the wealth and privilege of Opti for anonymity riddled with memory gaps and self doubt But when a highly addictive drug promises to end her dependency on those who’d. This series is very much a futuristic suspense that's fast moving and features a very unusual concept that of being able to briefly turn back time known as 'drafting' Peri has been lied to manipulated and ultimately betrayed by the man she trusted most and as this book starts she's off the grid determined to stay free of the crooked agencies that would use her and then scrub her memories A peaceful life is too much to ask for though and Peri's past is catching up but this time they dangle a huge carrot Whilst 'drafters'lose all memory of events that they change Opti have developed a drug that would enable the user to keep their memories For Peri it's almost impossible to resist as relying on those who 'anchor' her hasn't exactly worked in her favour but the price is high In order to be whole Peri would have to work for her enemies and oh yes there's that little side effect known as addiction No 'anchors' controlling her but Peri doesn't want to swap one prison for another would youWell what a humdinger of a dilemma the author poses Set in a futuristic Detroit yes there are amazing cars natch it's an odd mixture of capitalism and savage poverty Speaking of which Peri and those around her seem obsessed with wealth and material possessions so it makes her uite hard to like initially What strikes this reader though is the simple fact that Peri might lose chunks of memory due to her overworked brain but her possessions remain which probably help ground her The characters surrounding Peri are even unlikable if I'm honest and it's hard to understand some of their motives Those working for Opti are odious and one in particular is insane The government types seem little better and yet there's one who shines but even then I just wanted a little So now I come to the romantic angle Jack whose treachery cost Peri so much and Silas who is pretty much a mystery when it comes to motives Peri doesn't really know who to trust but with a killer on her tail and a drug messing up her system all she can do is keep going forward or maybe back if that's what's neededThis is a complex idea but it's essentially good versus evil I guess Whilst Peri is never warm and fluffy she does look out for those she thinks deserve saving As this ended I was left with a conundrum as there are peripheral characters that I simply don't trust but that's the beauty of this series I think So much is laid out in front of the reader and yet how much of it is smoke and mirrors It's an easier book to read than the previous one ' The Drafter' as this time at least Peri has some idea what she really wants which enables the reader to get onboard much uicker Definitely nothing like the Hollows books I associate this author with and best read in order but wow what a concept This is a voluntary review of an Advance Reader Copy

The Operator The Peri Reed Chronicles #2On the run ex agent Peri Reed returns bigger and bolder than ever in this second highly anticipated installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's new suspense trilogy The Peri Reed ChroniclesPeri Reed’s job eats her mind but for a special task agent in hiding forgetting the past can. 355 stars The Operator was much stronger than The Drafter I had a lot of specific criticisms of the first book but didn’t find any of those here I feel like the series would’ve even received better had she started here Or expanded the preuel because that was really good as well Overall I’m glad I read these but I’m a bit bummed there probably won’t be a continuation
