Zaya HC - Huang-jia Wei, Jean-david Morvan

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


Publication Date: September 1st 2014


I'd seen Zaya a few times on Netgalley and had always almost requested it, but something was holding me back. But when I saw some very positive reviews about it I changed my mind and decided this might just be something for me after all. 


Zaya is a retired assassin and mother of two. But in her business retirement is never final (unless you're dead) so when The Spiral (the organization she worked for) asks/forces her to accept a final mission, she doesn't have much of a choice. However, that might not even be the most dangerous thing lurking in space.


I'm not completely sure how I feel about this book. There were parts that really interested me while with others I had a very hard time concentrating. The cover is very beautiful, if you ask me, but the rest of the art work was just okay for me. I've seen things I liked better. The story is interesting but a lot happens at once, making it sometimes hard to follow exactly what's going on. It's definitely original, though I'm not sure it's book for everyone.
