    1. I read Very Mercenary last Summer, and I read it in a single day while traveling through a few layovers in route to New York. A short review would simply tell you that I disembarked my last flight with a smile on my face. I did. It was a big smile. A good day. So, this longer review is a long time coming, and it comes late, but the good news for everyone browsing here, is that it's not too late to pick up Rayo Casablanca's second novel and inject some kick-ass into your life.One look at the cove [...]

    2. Rayo Casablanca’s Very Mercenary is a just-don’t-think-about-it action movie in a book, but with too much social commentary and inane twists, the plot goes from something you’d be willing to pay for in the movie theater to something you’d be willing to watch on late-night cable. Except, you know, in print.Leigh Tiller is an attractive celebrity who has been kidnapped. Problem is, her father, Kip Tiller, instead of paying the ransom, hires out a scarred hitman, the Serologist, to kill eve [...]

    3. If I could give this book 4.5 stars, I would. Casablanca's writing is unusual and refreshing, a total page turner. My only complaint is that I had trouble getting through the first 40 pages or so - there was some gore that was difficult for me. But as the character develops (and they all do!) I got intrigued. Definitely got invested in the main characters, Laser and Leigh, and just had to find out what was going to happen to them! Great socio-political commentary along the veins of Palahnuik's ' [...]

    4. Outperforms Casablanca's debut novel in every important metric: there are more ninjas (1), more scooter-riding pompadoured lesbian assassins (like 4-ish), and more chase scenes featuring the Landmaster from Damnation Alley (1, but any more would make your brain explode).

    5. A crazy story about punk activists, amoral killers and a wealthy heiress. The characters and their antics are the drivers of this book. Too violent for my taste at times, but worth the ride.
