Synopsis from the Creator:

Deal with the Devil is Orphan Black meets the post-apocalyptic Avengers by USA Today and New York Times bestselling author duo Kit Rocha.
Nina is an information broker with a mission—she and her team of mercenary librarians use their knowledge to save the hopeless in a crumbling America.
Knox is the bitter, battle-weary captain of the Silver Devils. His squad of supersoldiers went AWOL to avoid slaughtering innocents, and now he's fighting to survive.
They’re on a deadly collision course, and the passion that flares between them only makes it more dangerous. They could burn down the world, destroying each other in the process…
Or they could do the impossible: team up.
This is the first book in a near-future science fiction series with elements of romance.

Review: Deal with the Devil, by Kit Rocha

Female friendships were central to Kit Rocha’s Beyond books, with their leather-clad sisterhood ready to fight for their chosen family. In Deal with the Devil, Dani, Maya and Nina are a misfit trio of former bodyguards, information couriers, and genetically modified soldiers, serving and protecting a small community in the ruins of Atlanta, trading in information and creating community through a post-apocalyptic library. Scarred by losses they fiercely protect each other and are deeply suspicious of the band of renegade super-soldiers who show up on their doorstep with a tempting offer, the location of one of the Rogue Library of Congress cache’s.

Time is running out for Knox and the Silver Devils, pushed too far by their corporate bosses, they’ve gambled on life on the run, but when their biochemist contact Luna is kidnapped they are forced to once again compromise their honor in order to survive. If they don’t deliver Nina to the kidnappers, they face slow painful deaths when their implants begin to fail.

Nina and Knox make an uneasy alliance, battling attraction and kinship as they set out together. However like their teams they can’t sustain their distance, unwillingly charmed by each other's determined leadership and survival skills. Their chemistry is combustible and their plans and good intentions don’t last for long.

Deal with The Devil is a satisfying mix of post-apocalyptic peril and fantastic friendships. It lays out a fascinating landscape full of intrigue and adventure. If you have been intrigued by Kit Rocha’s mix of sexiness and community, but perhaps intimidated by the Beyondverse don’t hesitate to pick up the Mercenary Librarian series.
