Peacemaker by Marianne de Pierres

Peacemaker by Marianne de PierresVirgin Jackson is the senior ranger in Birrimun Park – the world’s last natural landscape, overshadowed though it is by a sprawling coastal megacity. She maintains public safety and order in the park, but her bosses have brought out a hotshot cowboy to help her catch some drug runners who are affecting tourism. She senses the company is holding something back from her, and she’s not keen on working with an outsider like Nate Sixkiller.

When an imaginary animal from her troubled teenage years reappears, Virgin takes it to mean one of two things: a breakdown (hers!) or a warning. When the dead bodies start piling up around her and Nate, she decides on the latter.

Something terrible is about to happen in the park and Virgin and her new partner are standing in its path…

Praise and Reviews:

“I liked a lot about this book. There were plenty of twists, turns, and double crosses… Peacemaker is a good sf mystery for people looking for something a little different. Four stars.” – Dangerous Dan

“Move over stale f/sf themes; enter: Peacemaker, a wholly original and thrilling fantasy adventure.” – Looking for a Good Book

“Peacemaker rollicks along at a cracking pace, and I found myself holding my breath in anticipation at times, which is always a good sign! I got to the end of the book and flipped the last page in disappointment, because while the story ended well (albeit definitely set up for the next volume), I simply didn’t want it to stop. Bring on the next instalment!” – Fablecroft

“If you like your thrillers a little on the strange and dystopian side or your dystopias a little on the mythological and crime-solving side, Peacemaker could be the start of a series you’re looking for.” – New York Journal of Books

“Tired of the same old thing when it comes to urban fantasy? Look no further than Virgin Jackson.” – My Bookish Ways

This is the first novel by Marianne de Pierres I’ve read, and I hope to read more about Virgin Jackson and (perhaps) Nate Sixkiller. A fun romp that is much more than the parts which comprise it.” – Tor.Com
