Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn't make any difference... On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages, fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted soldiers. Though the origins of the war are shady and complex, there's one thing everybody agrees on-- There's not a chance in hell of ending it. Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and an alien gene pirate goes bad, Nyx's ugly past makes her the top pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home could end the war--but at what price? The world is about to find out.

I've been reading sci-fi/fantasy regularly for the last 30+ years, and this is one of the best I've ever read. Action-packed, fascinating world-building, great characters, surprises galore and a feminist streak a mile wide. I don't know why everyone isn't reading this already. All three books in the trilogy are fantastic.

The story is entertaining, but what I found most interesting was the take on this practically male-less society. You would hope it would be all empathy and teamwork, but the women are blood thirsty, crude and deadly. An interesting post-apocalyptic style tale of a people trapped in an endless war.
