Hunter finds out more about her parents and the people in her new life, and also learns who the chief “baddie” is. She also finds what she has ultimately given to Slade in this sequel which needs to have the first book read first to follow. There are more supernaturals in this episode and more “rules” to break. It ends in a semi-cliffhanger leading on to another sequel still to come.
AMAZING! Assassin’s Mask is the second book in the Assassin’s magic series. This book was amazing, well written story and draws you in. The characters have depth and you feel what they feel. I was in tears in this book! I can’t wait for the next book. I’m loving this series!
Holy Damn I don't think there is anything in the world that will prepare you for this book. NOTHING!
But it honestly doesn't matter how much torment and torture this book puts you through because in the end it so dang worth it. You will regret nothing!
I find it weird how much we as readers love the torment a book puts us through and mostly in the end that is how we judge it by. If this is truly the case then this book put me through the purest kind of pain - so much so that it went soul deep. My heart ached when hers did and broke when I saw the pain in not only her but also between her and Slade and the distance that was pulling at them creating masks and walls to block it all. But not only that but the characters are so well constructed that you cant help but love them all you bond to them all and it kills you inside when certain things happen. My heart is still so torn up at one of the scenes that transpires towards the end. Like I wanna scream and I want it not to be real soo bad but yeah...it totally is.
This story has an amazing intensity level that literally ups the game for all books, it is sitting on the edge of your seat page turning, captivating in all senses of the word, and honestly doesn't even understand the meaning of what slow paced is. There wasn't one moment during this book that I got bored or wanted it to pick up speed. So much so that when I reached the end of the book I almost didn't believe it and also didn't want to believe it. Like I legit just stared at the last page on my kindle wishing it would turn - alas it did not though, so very rude in my opinion lol.
But to any readers that have read this amazing book did you guess what was coming at the end? I was pretty pleased to have been on the right track but even being right it didn't take away from the reveal at the end in one bit.
I can honestly not wait for the next instalment for this series. It has been a truly incredible journey so far but it only leaves me wanting and needing more. I'm super excited that we will receive a companion story (Assassin's Menace) for Cain Carter. From the very beginning I always had a huge draw to his character wanting to see deeper inside him. Also hoping against hope that maybe we'll get one for Vlad too. The moment I saw this character I was like damn this character is so unique to this story - as in he shows a different side right from the beginning that is not usually a characteristic shown in the Assassin's. I would just love to see him get his own story. :)
Oh and be prepared for that crash landing to earth when you finish. I honestly still don't know what to do with myself - “oh no. This is earth isn’t it?”
Anywho I'm just going to leave you with these very important words:
"Just because you're born into darkness, doesn't mean you can't overcome it."
Assassin’s Mask continues on immediately where Everly Frost left the cliffhanger in Assassin’s Magic.
Once again you’ll be sucked into Hunter Cassidy’s story with the detailed emotions. Hunter’s a fearless, yet heartbroken assassin, and every part of this story intensifies her emotions. This book was so heart wrenching, action packed and plot twist, that I needed at breather at times to make it through the story and absorb what I’d read.
The character development from Hunter and Slade, right through to the residents of Saber Lane and the other assassin’s continues to grow, which is amazing considering the amount of character building that went into the first book.
I highly recommend Assassin’s Mask and I can’t wait to read the third book - Assassin’s Maze. Also looking forward to the Assassin’s Menace - An Assassin’s Magic Companion Story, which is part of the Shadow’s and Sorcery collection.
Another awesome novel from Everly Frost! MC Hunter is strong, loyal and as stubborn as they come, which of course you already know from book 1 😉 Add attraction, heartache and a heaped helping of danger and Hunter becomes ferocious. Can she hold together the broken pieces of her heart, of her life long enough to save those she loves? Full of emotion, amazing world building and characters you love and love to hate! Twists, turns and surprises keep it engaging as you cheer for your desired outcome. Highly recommended!
Got this the very expected date, eagerly dug into it. love the main female and male, superb world, great storyline..everything's epic. I hope the next one doesnt take too long because i love it and cant wait for more.
