Firefly meets La Femme Nikita in this action-packed, audacious SF debut.

Entombed for twenty years, Reana, one of the galaxy’s most dangerous assassins, has been freed, and the first thing on her mind is revenge. At the top of her list is Thallian, the insane war criminal who enslaved Reana, turned her into a killing machine, and then ultimately left her for dead. When Thallian discovers that she has not only survived but also has escaped, he’s willing to risk everything—including his army of cloned sons—to bring her back under his control.

Gavin saved Reana once . . . only to lose her again to the clutches of Thallian. Since then he’s been alternately trying to forget her and desperately searching for her. Now that she’s free, he must come to terms with the fact that she might not be his, and perhaps never was.

Reana’s adopted sister, Ariel, is a child of wealth and privilege, as well as a gun runner who chose the right side of a galaxy-wide war that destroyed a human empire. She sent Gavin on his mad quest to find Reana in the first place, and now that she’s been found, Ariel doesn’t know if she can face either of them, or the truths she’s been running from since Reana was left for dead.

A brutal race to see who will kill whom first, The Dangerous Type is the explosive opening to Loren Rhoads’s action-SF-meets-space-opera trilogy.

Praise for the In the Wake of the Templars Series

“This military flavored space opera is sure to please David Weber and Joel Shepherd fans.”
Library Journal

“Dark and brutal. . . well-choreographed action. . . an SF trilogy that seems determined to bring the style of grimdark fantasy to space opera.”
Publishers Weekly

“Completely lives up to its 'adventurous space opera' billing, complete with aliens, clones, double-crosses, sacrifices, daring rescues, and galaxy-spanning action. . . one of the more satisfying conclusions I've come across in years.”
Beauty in Ruins

“Rhoads takes the best elements of Star Wars and makes them dark, gritty and real; then mates it with Guardians of the Galaxy and Firefly to create a kick-ass and totally original lovechild. A must read!”
—Dana Fredsti, author of the Ashley Parker Plague series

The Dangerous Type is pure pulp. . .and damn it if it doesn’t work well in that category.”
Fantasy Review Barn

“The perfect science fiction novel to give to your friend who loves to read hot and heavy romances. . .In fact, things got so steamy in this novel I began to feel dirty just from reading it.”
