The Drafter by Kim Harrison

The DrafterBook Description:
Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her to use her body as a weapon, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run.

Don’t forgive and never forget has always been Peri’s creed. But her day job makes it difficult: she is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote.

When Peri discovers her name on a list of corrupt operatives, she realizes that her own life has been manipulated by the agency. She joins forces with a mysterious rogue soldier in a deadly race to piece together the truth about her final task, unable to trust even herself.

My Thoughts:
This was an intriguing book.  Peri is a drafter.  This means she has a unique ability to manipulate time.  Problem is she forgets because of this and is open for others to manipulate her.  She has to rely on her handler/boyfriend to fill in the gaps in her memory.  When she realizes she has been being lied to, she has to find out exactly what is going on and why.
I will start this by saying, I like most all of the Kim Harrison books I've read.  That being said, I had issues with this one.  It had the action, betrayal, hurt, conflict, and never slowed down!  My problem was mainly that I didn't like Peri.  I wanted to but I just couldn't.  I didn't feel invested in any of the characters.  The author does know how to twist you up in the story though.
This was a 3/5 for me.  It had plenty of action and betrayal but it was too repetitive and ambiguous.  Maybe that will be worked out in future books.

Thank you to the author/publisher for the review copy of this book (via PUYB).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
