Koko The Mighty

This is the second book in a series, and I need to read the first one right now. This is how the book starts. “Once upon a time in the year 2516, retired corporate mercenary Koko Martstellar believed she had quite the life. Running a bar and brothel operation on The Sixty Islands, the world’s most violently decadent South Pacific resort; honestly, who wouldn’t believe they had it good? Of course, when Koko’s piously phony boss tried to have her killed for an unspeakable crime she no longer recalled, the easy life for Koko deep-sixed pretty fast.”

That’s how the book STARTS, like a gravelly narrator on a 1970s TV series. From there, it just goes bonkers. It roars through action scene after action scene.

There’s so much to like here; for one, keep an eye out for the footnotes.

One more quote that I love: Koko is being interrogated and the bad guy asks her where she’s from.
