I just finished reading this series the second time around and oh my fracking gawwwd do I love this badass piece of literature
PS: this is the new site address: thelibraria , ugh I really do. I’m like staring at my laptop trying to put into words how awesomeness this series is at the same time trying not to sound like a broken record every time I do a review on a story. (Haha But hey they are treasures I decided to share to those who have same interest as mine so I dare say, “Suck it up bro. “)
In this universe, the Agency is a secret organization that by and large does the dirty work for the US government. Their main focus are mostly on spying and assassination of those people and other organization whose visions deflect the ideals of the Agency.
This is where the main characters of the story enters.
Years after the bombs of WWIII have changed the physical and political landscape, the Agency ruthlessly works behind the scenes to take down rebel groups that threaten the current government. Their goals justify all means. Hsin Liu Vega (Sin) is their most efficient and deadly assassin ever. However, he tends to go off on unauthorized killing sprees and somehow his assigned partners all end up dead under suspicious circumstances. That is why the Agency has had him locked up in a box on the fourth floor for years. But now they think it is time to put the psychopath back in the field. With a new partner.
Boyd’s mother, a high ranking Agency official, volunteers her teenage son for the position. Boyd is not afraid of death. In fact, his life has been such an endless cycle of apathy and despair for the last few years that he’d welcome it.
Can these two broken men form an efficient partnership? Can they learn to trust anyone, let alone each other? Sin doesn’t give a fuck about the Agency, or the androgynous boy who holds the remote to the shock collar that is supposed to control him.
On the other hand, Boyd is strangely unafraid of the man everyone calls ‘monster’ and Sin seems reluctant to let his keeper get himself killed on any missions. Yet.
So basically this series focuses on our world after the nuclear war, countries nuking each other, you know the shits that really might be possible in the (near?) future, a post apocalyptic romance, a dark love in a world gone bad.
