Praise for the San Angeles series:
"The Courier is lean and mean as Kris’s rugged ride, ripping through plot and world-building at a relentless pace... Brandt has created a darkly gripping vision of the future," ―B&N Sci-fi Fantasy Blog
“Brandt’s supercharged sequel to The Courier continues the cyberpunk fun of the San Angeles series.... Brandt fleshes out an all-too-possible future of crushing poverty and corporate control, and the complex heroine who will lead us through to a better future.” —Tor.com
“Brandt has created a fully-fleshed universe, filled with high tension, memorable villains, and plot twists by the dozen.” ―Barnes & Noble
“It felt a lot like the Bourne Identity movie except with a sci-fi setting and a relatable young girl as the protagonist. The Courier is a fast paced science fiction thriller, with a heroine you can really root for and a world you can’t wait to learn more about.” ―The Heroine Bookstore
“Gerald Brandt tells an impossible-to-put-down tale and introduces us to an exciting heroine I’d love to see more of.” ―University City Review
“The action does not let up. Brandt writes in a way that keeps the tale clear, and easy to follow.... Quick and violent, engaging and intense.” —On a Dark Stormy Review

Very efficient writing, very well edited, very little unnecessary info that could break the rhythm, but enough details to be easy to follow and understand.
It tends to "forget" the age of the main character and we don't find out enough about the male character. I think it really is a good little fun book to read. I'm happy Jeff Somers suggested it and I'm kind of hoping there's a sequel.
It's built on a very interesting vision of the future which is, I think, well thought out and nicely consistent. Much like the sprawl of William Gibson (without cyberspace), this universe is wide, complex and you feel like it could contain/inspire many stories born of shady deals and unscrupulous characters in every nook and cranny of the lower levels.
It's a good canvas where I hope the author goes back to paint more stories.
