"4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/08/18/...

If you took a buddy movie and combined it with the desolation of the Fallout series and the rip-roaring explosive action of Mad Max, then you just might end up with somethin..." Read more of this review »

"Review from Speculative Herald: http://www.speculativeherald.com/2017...

In Raid, Merbeth takes us back to the wastes where we can see all the violence and messiness that comes with it. If you haven’t read Bite, I can sum it up as a post-apocalypti..." Read more of this review »

"4.0 Stars Video Review: https://youtu.be/4MT01RhHD-U
This super entertaining page-turner that reads like an action-adventure movie in the vein of Mad Max.

Raid is the follow up or companion to the author`s debut novel, Bite, which I also read and lo..." Read more of this review »

“I can do this," I say. "On my own. Let me prove it." He doesn't look convinced. "Come on, give me a chance to be the hero for once." I pause. "Or... the villain? I'm still a little confused about where we stand as far as that goes?"
"Don't think about it too hard, you'll hurt yourself," he says.”

“I don't seem very useful. I don't look big or tough or strong. And yet here I am, in the middle of your fancy base." I gesture to the room around me, and feel the shaking in my hands subside. "Before I even met these guys, I was wandering the wastes alone. Completely alone. Do you even know what that's like?"
Saint is silent, studying my face. I swallow and continue. "Not a lot of people do. 'Cause most people who end up alone just die, and that's the end of that. But not me. I joined a crew of goddamn sharks. I ate human flesh to survive. I learned to shoot. To kill. I blew the Queen's head off. I watched a friend die yesterday and I still came here to kick some ass." I take a deep breath, feel my chest rise and fall, the words nearly tumbling out of my mouth now. "And you think I'm not good enough for your mess of an army? Just 'cause I'm a little girl? Well, fuck you. I'm worth two of your guards, and tomorrow I'll be worth four of 'em, and eventually the whole lot. Because that's who I am, and that's what I do. I survive.”
K.S. Merbeth, Bite
