In the Ichidian Universe, The League and their ruthless assassins rule all. Expertly trained and highly valued, the League Assassins are the backbone of the government. But not even the League is immune to corruption . . .

Command Assassin Nykyrian Quikiades once turned his back on the League—and has been hunted by them ever since. Though many have tried, none can kill him or stop him from completing his current mission: to protect Kiara Zamir, a woman whose father’s political alliance has made her a target.

As her world becomes even deadlier, Kiara must entrust her life to the same kind of beast who once killed her mother and left her for dead. Old enemies and new threaten them both and the only way they can survive is to overcome their suspicions and learn to trust in the very ones who threaten them the most: each other.

Val’s Review

4 Stars

What up, what up, what up my friends.

How was everyone’s holiday?

Mine was swell. I spent Christmas Eve spreading holiday cheer…

AKA champagne…

But what can I say.


And Christmas Eve hung the fuck over from all the champagne.



Let’s just say I never realized how loud the ripping of wrapping paper sounded.

But I digress.

This book.

I deliberated over my rating on this for a bit.

I was really enjoying everything and then there were a few too many “convenient” twists toward the end for my liking.

But after further deliberation, I came to the conclusion…

Who the fuck cares.

As a PNR WHORE, I have some serious appreciation for world building done right.

And this book had that in spades. So for that alone it deserves a good rating.

I also really liked the hero.

The heroine…not as much.

But we can’t always have everything, I guess.
