Loren Rhoads is the author of THE DANGEROUS TYPE, KILL BY NUMBERS, and NO MORE HEROES, the parts of a space opera trilogy called IN THE WAKE OF THE TEMPLARS coming from Nightshade Books in 2015.
She's also the author of WISH YOU WERE HERE: ADVENTURES IN CEMETERY TRAVEL, co-author (with Brian Thomas) of the novel AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, and editor of THE HAUNTED MANSION PROJECT: YEAR TWO.
For 10 years, Loren edited the cult nonfiction magazine Morbid Curiosity. From the magazine, she distilled her favorite essays into MORBID CURIOSITY CURES THE BLUES: True Stories of the Unsavory, Unwise, Unorthodox and Unusual, which was published by Scribner.
She likes long walks in the moonlight and old graveyards.
Set in the wake of a galaxy wide war and the destruction of a human empire, The Dangerous Type follows the awakening of one of the galaxies most dangerous assassins and her quest for vengeance. Entombed for twenty years, Reana has been found and released.
Thallian has been on the lam for the last fifteen years; a wanted war criminal whose entire family has been hunted down and murdered for their role in the galaxy wide genocide of the Templars. His name is the first on Reana’s list, as he’s the one that enslaved her, made her his assassin, and ultimate put her in a tomb. But Thallian is willing to risk everything—including his army of cloned sons—to capture her. Now it’s a race to see who kills who first.
Alternatively, Gaven has spent the last twenty years trying to forget about Reana, who he once saved and then lost to the clutches of Thallian. Reana’s adopted sister, Ariel, has been running from the truth: the one about Reana, about her and Gavin, and doesn’t know if she’ll be able to face either of them.
The Dangerous Type, a mix of military science fiction and an adventurous space opera that grabs you from the first pages and doesn’t let go. Along with a supporting cast of smugglers, black market doctors, and other ner-do-wells sprawled across a galaxy brimming with alien life, The Dangerous Type is a fantastic beginning to Loren Roads’ epic trilogy.
