When outlaw Suzy Spitfire discovers her father was murdered after creating a super-duper artificial intelligence, she races across the solar system in search of the brain he built—but it’s a rough ride, and she’s soon forced to tangle with pirates, predators, and her father’s killer—as well as a man she thinks she can love.
Suzy Spitfire Kills Everybody is a smash-bang sci-fi adventure filled with action, intrigue, and a dose of dark humor.

As the first book that wasn’t a reread that I’ve managed to read (audio excluded) without DNFing this summer, I’m giving this high marks. But it’s not just that – Suzy is a truly compelling character and I enjoy the way she is unapologetically harsh and kicks ass.
I also love that the meaning of the title is actually not at all what your expecting (read to find out). I really wish I’d read this book prior to Suzy Spitfire and the Snake Eyes of Venus, since knowing everyone would have made that book even better. But even out of order they work. I really hope that I am paying attention when a third book comes out because I want to read it, for sure.
I guess this is technically a Sci-Fi book, in that it takes place in the future and there’s lots of space travel. But that’s about the only thing about it that felt Sci-Fi. So Sci-Fi light? It’s actually just more of an action adventure series. The Sci-Fi elements never distracted, but they were pretty cool (the weapons and medicine, for example).
Lots of humor, action, memorable characters and even a bit of heartwarming moments – I really enjoyed this book.
