The Mercenary Librarians and the Silver Devils are all part of experimental programs with implants, genetics, and cloning. Their reality is a time in the future after several wars, causing much of the United States to be a wasteland. Rising from the ashes of those wars are power-hungry companies who are using technology to improve their version of the human species. Knox and the Silver Devils have left the control of one such company called TechCorps and are in a race that might cost them their lives if they can't stabilize their implants before the kill switch inside kills them all. Nina mourned the loss of her sisters but has moved on by helping the community where she lives to survive by providing security. When Knox comes to Nina with a proposal to help each other, Nina doesn't know that she is being offered up in exchange for the one person who might be able to help Knox and his team.
The Mercenary Librarians refers to Nina and her team who protect and disperse the knowledge of one of the few remaining libraries to others for a price. The book is written in chapters that are mostly numbered and told from 3rd person omniscient point of view, but every one in a while, there are chapters labeled with the names of characters who narrate what is happening from their own perspectives. Among the unique features of this book are the internal memos at the beginning of each chapter from the corporations that originally programmed Knox's and Nina's teams, giving some background into what happened to create all of these damaged individuals. Overall, this was a well-written futuristic story with some romance elements that works on all levels. ( )

Mildly interesting - not as good as I thought a "mercenary librarian" story would be. Lots of unreliable narrators, lying to each other and sometimes to themselves. Not bad, and I'm interested to read the next, but not as good as I was expecting. ( )

A really enjoyable story. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series. ( )

False advertising, as it’s not really about librarians. Genetically enhanced women archive and share written materials. It’s not the same thing at all; and very little focus is spent on that, even. It’s an adventure story and a steamy romance. The backstory is crap. ( )
