They are the outcasts of humanity. Blessed with power. Cursed by fate. Driven by passion. The Sentinels have returned. . .

Out Of The Shadows

At six-foot-three and two-hundred-fifty pounds, Fane is a natural born guardian. A flawless mix of muscled perfection and steely precision, he has devoted years of his life to protecting a beautiful necromancer. But after she found love in the arms of another, Fane has been a warrior adrift. He swears allegiance only to the Sentinels. And no woman will ever rule his heart again. . .

Into The Fire

Not only a powerful psychic, Serra is that rare telepath who can connect to minds through objects. When the daughter of a high-blood businessman is kidnapped, Serra agrees to help. But when she stumbles onto a conspiracy involving secrets sects and ancient relics, her life is in mortal danger--and Fane is her only hope. Is the warrior willing to risk his body, his soul, and his heart, for Serra? Or will one last betrayal destroy them both?

Blood Assassin is the second book in Alexandra Ivy’s The Sentinels series.  I had the pleasure to read and review the first book as well and you can see that full review HERE.

The depth of the storyline that takes place in Blood Assassin makes for such an absorbing read.  The characters always come alive and have very distinct personalities and their own charisma, even the bad guys.  The air of mystery Ivy wove into this story always keep me turning the page and not wanting to stop.  This is a book that kept me hooked from the first page.

The relationship between Fane and Serra flowed very nicely and I enjoyed that was not quick to truly forget what a dick he had been while she obviously pursued him.  It was an interesting dynamic and I liked that Serra always pointed out his bad actions.  Even poking fun at him for his obvious predictability.  The banter between the two added an air of lightness to the overall darker feel of the book.

Every single character was wholly formed had had purpose.   Not only purpose, but great motivation.  Blood Assassin is an overall great read!

I rate Blood Assassin 4.5 out of 5 Bullets!

    I really liked this one too. Serra was not going to just accept his change of heart, she made him work for it!
