ARC Review Copy

A snow leopard shifter exiled from his pride twenty years ago, Harbin treads the dark path of life as an assassin, driven by a hunger for vengeance, mercilessly hunting the Archangel members who attacked his kin, murdering his mother and sister.

When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can’t resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head. What he finds in a rundown nightclub isn’t quite what he expects—a beautiful snow leopard female that awakens a fierce hunger inside him.

Aya has spent seventeen years living in London, immersed in the underbelly of the fae world, keeping her head down and her tail out of trouble. But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest—if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate.

Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?



~ 5 Marked by an Assassin Stars ~

Epic! Outstanding! Mind-blowing!

WOW! Each book is just as amazing as the last, if not more extraordinary. I have another favorite in this epic series. I really can’t just pick one. The series is extraordinary. The author knows how to weave a fantastic tail with each new novel. Each novel is packed full of action, twists and turns, new surprises, eventful and emotional moments, which add up to one remarkable read!

Marked by an Assassin brings us some key points in the opening chapters on our leads Harbin and Aya, that give the characters a lifetime’s worth of history. Learning about their history sets us up nicely for the plot that just keeps giving.

Harbin and Aya have a history and combine that with what happened in-between their childhood to them become adults you end up with an irresistible male lead and a spitfire heroine. Their chemistry was superb. I liked that we got to see more of Hartt and Fuery, they are a curious pair and I hope we get to see them in the future. I also like that we got to revisit with other previous characters. 

The series can be read out of order which is nice, but I highly recommend an in order read. We get to revisit some pivotal scenes that happened in privies novels. These scenes are given to us in different perspectives and it just adds to the awe-inspiring adventure.

Marked by an Assassin adds up to one spectacular, suspenseful, heart-wrenching, and wondrous read. It left me so content and I am just waiting on pins and needles for the next installment in this series.
