Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned.
Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up.
As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.
But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.
Who missed Sarai? I certainly did. Who missed Victor? Me me me! I loved this second book. Much mature Sarai and much more mushy mushy Victor. More characters and more killing. I can’t say much without spoiling the book but I can say that this might be a little better than the first one.
4 Royal Stars because I love a certain new character which I cannot name because spoiler!
I have two words : SQUAD GOALS. At first I thought Victor wouldn’t rescue Sarai in her foolish attempt to kill Hamburg, but I’m kind of glad he did. I found it sweet that he went out his way just to look out for Sarai and all her shit despite having huge problems of his own.
I loved Fredrik! I loved that he has his own backstory and as vicious as he may be he still has a heart that only few can see.
So Niklas protected Sarai all along in her attempt to live a normal life. It was just a test if Sarai will break so she can be a part of the team. Niklas may have grudges towards Sarai but I know they’ll get by.
I loved how Victor lets Sarai grow on her own. He doesn’t force her to stay behind and protected. He lets her out on the wild.
I am so excited for the next book! These books are so easy to read and I love it. ❤
