It’s been over three years since I began this series, and over two years since I read ‘The Swan & The Jackal’. Yet, this series continues to captivate me. Each book feels unique, but leaves me feeling even more intrigued with this misfit group of killers. I can’t get enough of them.
This time around, Victor, Izabel and their assassin’s order are faced with a mysterious new enemy. She can’t be broken and they may have finally met their match. Nora is a trained operative…and she’s determined to expose all of their darkest secrets.
One by one, they confess their secrets. All the while, they try to figure out what it is that Nora’s really after. It’s a race against time, with the lives of their loved ones hanging in the balance. If her demands aren’t met, they’ll pay the ultimate price.
From start to finish, I was on the edge of my seat. Nora always seemed to be a step ahead of everyone and I couldn’t wait to see what she was going to do next. The woman was awe inspiring in a diabolical kind of way. I could definitely relate to Izabel’s insecurities when faced with Nora’s cool confidence. She was such a badass!
It was painful to hear some of the confessions as they were made…Victor’s especially. While there was something that felt so wrong about them being forced to share their most private acts, I loved getting to know more about each of them. After three books, these characters are still virtually unknown to me. This book gave some much needed insight into their inner workings.
When Nora’s end game is finally revealed, it was not at all what I expected. She turned their world upside-down. I was shell shocked. I didn’t see that coming.
Now that I’ve finally gotten around to reading this book, I don’t think I’ll be able to stay away again. I’m going to start the next book immediately. I can’t get enough of this series!
