When I say that I love this series, I mean that I LOVE this series! Heaton has created a world that will suck you in and with each additional installment just gets better and more complex. MARKED BY AN ASSASSIN continues the series with another great pairing. Harbin and Aya are connected in a way that is surprising when it unfolds but adds great dimension to what is happening between them. They are both scarred and distrustful for very good reasons. Harbin is more feral than civilized and Aya is trying to be as detached as possible while gaining what she once thought was rightful vengeance. However, with Archangel nothing is at it seems and as the lies and deceptions unfold Aya struggles to come to terms with her part in what is happening to fellow shifters.
It's always a little hard for me to write reviews for books that I really enjoy because many of the best parts are spoilers. If you are a paranormal romance fan this series really is a must read. As with the others, MARKED BY AN ASSASSIN is full of intrigue, action, and the struggle of fated mates coming together despite tough obstacles. Yes, there is enough of the steamy romance in there as well.
Just like with the others there are secondary characters in this one that I now look forward to getting their own stories down the line. I stand with my fellow ETERNAL MATES fans in wanting Bleu's story-we ALL do! Now I also want to find out more about Hartt and Feury as well. When a man can help reach someone who is feared by everyone and is about to snap with a calming touch like Hartt can, that's a man I need to read more about. If you follow my reviews you know that I love myself some men who are a bit broken, slightly dangerous, and a little cray cray. Well, Feury has that covered in spades! Feury has a past and Bleu knows about it and I need much more of both of them.
**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**
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?
