Join Port Zahir’s ultimate professional retribution service.
The first morning of my posting to Port Zahir didn’t start well. Revenge Squad Incorporated’s outpost was deserted, the police took me in for some applied brutality, and a religious cult tried to recruit me. Even so, Fate decided to take things easy on me for my first day, because it wasn’t until the afternoon that people start trying to kill me.
My name is NJ McCall, and this is the story of how Revenge Squad’s least-qualified new recruit stumbled across merciless revolutionaries while being assaulted from every quarter by the craziness that is everyday life in Port Zahir. It’s about what happens when you meet a bona fide war hero, your alien wife develops an obsession with human body parts, and you sip coffee with a Catholic bishop who knows every mercenary in town.
But most of all, it’s about how much fun you can have on a warm, sandy beach when you’re tied to a post below the high water line, and the tide’s coming in.
‘Hurt U Back’ is the short opening novel for Revenge Squad, the new urban space opera crossover series by Tim C. Taylor set in the worlds of the Human Legion. Fans of Jim Butcher’s ‘The Dresden Files’ will feel at home here as much as followers of science fiction adventures from Michael Anderle, Daniel Arenson, and Amy DuBoff.
