Review: Blood Assassin (The Sentinels #2) by Alexandra Ivy

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?

YAY! Fane gets his own book in Born Assassin, which also means he gets a HEA, too. I loved him in the previous book, all silent strength, and stealth…it’s always the quiet ones you got to watch out for. Serra is just the prefect opposite of him. And she is TIRED of him denying her. Well there is no denying now once she goes missing from Valhalla. With the help of Callie, he discovers Serra has left and something isn’t right (Don’t mess with a girl’s vintage Louis Vuitton!) and hunts her down. Finding her and thinking he can rescue her away only to find she’s been poisoned by high-blood businessman whose young daughter has kidnapped. He needs Serra’s help finding her and will only reverse the spell once she’s been found.

 

Woof! This was one busy book! Kidnappings, mysterious high-bloods and one very determined Fane keep the energy level running addictively high. I love when a story is loaded with twisting intrigue. When I think I got it figured out and whoosh! It changes up. Where Fane was the silent deadly type before now he is oozing smexy strength. Serra is no slouch in the brains department either. When Fane finally caves to his wants with Serra, HAWTNESS! However, it wasn’t just the sex that had me going here. It’s all the extras with the continues world building, learning more about high-bloods, and the mystery behind Molly’s disappearance. Great high octane levels all the way around kept me reading this book non-stop.

 

Gotta love me some secondaries! Wolfe and the Mave… all that smoldering don’t touch heat between them is enough to singe your hair yet I’m hearing way too much duty, honor, and must keep my distance. Someone please tell those two they really need to just get over it and get a room! Bas I initially thought was a jerk but slowly he’s growing on me. I hope to see more of him in the future. Kaede, I bet there’s an interesting story behind him. Once again, the Brotherhood makes its appearance. I dismissed them after the first book just thinking they were filler for the plot. Now I’m not so sure. Hmmm…

 

I’m kind of new to the Alexandra Ivy bandwagon only have a few books of hers under my belt, but, what I have read has been fairly awesome. Characters with just the right amount of heat and friction between them, plots that aren’t easy to predict but great to lose yourself in. Not to mention quite the world building that has me begging for more. Yes I am a big fan now of her books and will be recommending them to my friends.
