Item description for The Society (The Society Series, Book 1) by Lilith Saintcrow...
The black-ops government agency called Sigma broke Justin Delgado, trained his psionic talent, and turned him into a killer named Agent Breaker. Then he escaped, joining an underground resistance movement of psions determined to use their talents to bring Sigma down. Competent, cold, and cruelly efficient, he's the best operative the Society has, a legend among the psions who fight a shadow war against an enemy that owns the courts, the press, and the police. Feared even by his own teammates, hunted by the government, and too damaged to feel anything but clinical rage, he is utterly alone---until he meets Rowan.
When Rowan Price stumbles across his team in an abandoned house, Delgado is assigned to make contact, bring her in, and keep her alive---because Rowan is one of the most powerful psychics the resistance has ever encountered, possessed of a talent that can heal shattered minds and broken bodies, or incite riots and revolution. If the government gets its hands on her, she could very well mean the downfall of the resistance itself. Because nobody, not even Rowan, is quite sure how far her talents extend, or powerful she could eventually become... and twenty-four hours after she meets Delgado, her life is shattered and she's on the run. If Sigma can't take her freedom, they'll settle for her life. She is simply too powerful to be left alone.
The Society will welcome her, if she can stay alive long enough to join them. Unfortunately, there's a traitor buried in the ranks of the resistance, ready to betray everything the Society has worked so hard to achieve. If the Society goes down, Rowan is at risk. And God alone knows what Delgado will do to keep her safe, because Rowan is fast becoming the only thing in the world he cares about.

Adequate Weekend Read Dec 28, 2007
A short, fast read - enjoyable for a lazy weekend or traveling book. I enjoyed Delgado's character, but felt that he was a bit 2 dimensional in this first intallment. There were gaps in the story..like Rowan's drug induced stupor/escape from the bad guys. That whole series of shenanigans felt like it could have added to Delgado's character and their relationship, but ended up with me flipping back thru pages, wondering if I accidentally skipped a chapter. Rowan's character seemed intriguing, but never really developed into anything impressive (until the next book.) In my opinion, this book and Hunter Healer should have been one volume. If the book sounds like something you might be interested in, pick it up along with the sequel. Getting just the one feels like an incomplete read because of the ending. Overall, I gave it 3 stars because of the brevity and incompleteness, if they had made it one book with the Hunter Healer story, I probably would've given it 4.
Super Reader Aug 30, 2007
A young woman is more than a bit different. In fact, she has psionic abilities. This makes her of interest to two groups, the government Sigma agency, and a group of underground psionicists called The Society, that want to prevent such people being used as government tools for spook operations, etc.
Of course, the society is set up like a covert agency themselves, out of necessity.
The young woman is powerful, hence all the interest. Throw in the usual bloke that helps her out she will like, and a not too bad leave you wanting to find out what is going on ending and this book is ok.
Paranormal May 12, 2007
I like Lilith Saintcrows writing style and her books have plenty of action. Sometimes the quilt trip of the two main characters got irritating but overall it was a good book.
Once you start to read this book, you can't stop! Jan 15, 2007
Fast paced book. Good charactor development. I just was going to 'look' at it before I went to sleep. I didn't put it down until the finished in the wee hours. Purchased sequal the next day.
Pretty Good Dec 22, 2006
Fast read with a good concept. Make sure you buy the second one at the same time as the first. Characters were good. It is *sort of* a romance novel, except that it is written from the perspecitive (mostly) of the male protagonist. This point of view was a nice change from the norm. I'm buying the sequel so I give it up a thumbs up.
