Men will put up with almost any shit from a woman if he thinks sex may possibly happen at some point in the future.

After reading the first 2 chapters, I became enthralled. At first I thought this would simply be a female 'dexter' but there is quite a bit more to it than that. D is almost alien in her thoughts regarding others, a tell-tale sign of what people inaccurately term 'sociopath'.
Writing style is similar to F.Paul Wilson, I found. Descriptive narrative is straight and to-the-point.
First-person narrative can be tricky, especially when doing something in this ilk, but the suspense builds quite nicely.
The negative, if there is one to be found, would be the perceived lack of order. Many casual readers will probably find some of the structure confusing, but I don't think this story is meant to cater to the casual reader.
For me; when I read a tale I want UNIQUE.
This is not your STANDARD title-and-chapter, man-vs-whatever story, so, be warned readers who enjoy fluff.

This is turning into a fantastic thriller with a believable, smart, tough, mysterious female protagonist.
I definitely recommend it.

Saravi Hussain

Saravi Hussain is an amazingly well-detailed and complete character. I like the spy's sense of humor and sense of gravitas.
I am NOT a spy guy as far as reading, but this kept me hooked.

I'd say BOND may get a run for his money!

Fun with Philip K Dick Flare

How to kill a cyborg is a very unique story, although there are clearly elements of inspiration from Dick's "We'll Remember it for you Wholesale" and "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep".
The grammar could use some work but that is a minor critique. A bit too many characters to keep up with but this is the first chapter, and it's clear the author is trying to immerse the reader in a specific mindframe and world.
Give it a read even if you like The Terminator series!

Broken Arrow Chapter 1

The characters are immediately identifiable, meaning that each is distinct within its own nature. The background, though vague, is titillating enough to create the desire to read more. Nice beginning, this is pretty much what you'd expect to see more from a middling or crafted writer than an amateur, and overall; pretty captivating.
