“jeans loose enough to kick a man in the throat” – quite possibly the best clothing description I have ever read. And this quote alone really sets the book’s tone and shows you how tough the heroine truly is. And what a smart ass she tends to be, a fact that I truly appreciate. Most heroines in books are gorgeous and they’re cheeky, but still respectfully so. Kate Daniels is not a stunner, she’s adequately alright looking, and she is so damn cheeky that throughout the book I constantly expect her to have her head chopped off (literally). I love the departure from traditional heroine, and this is definitely what drew me in.
Kate Daniels is quite possibly my favourite literary heroine. At least this week. And her introduction in A Questionable Client did not disappoint. This short story was a fantastic way to be thrown into Daniels’ chaotic future, one where magic and technology war for dominance and humans are powerless to do anything about it.
