January 02, 2017

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the Company of Killers #2
Release: December 6, 2013
Length: 314 pages

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.

My Review

Killing Sarai - ★★★★☆

I must admit, this book started off a bit rough and so it only got 4.5 stars. I was confused by Sarai's idea of normal, but then I realized that that was the point. This chick couldn't do normal.


This was intense and action-packed awesomeness! With Victor's help, Sarai has really come into her own. I really love these two together and I want more! He's cold, calculating and lethal and she's emerging as a real badass. LOVE IT!!

I'm quite strangely fascinated by Fredrik. I'm always attracted to the dark, twisted and sadistic and he fits the mold. The hints of his depravity have definitely piqued my interest in him. I still also really like Niklas as well, and getting to know him as an individual and not just as Victor's shadow would be a treat. He's hard to trust and has questionable motives sometimes, but he's another man I'm keeping my eye on.

I'm excited to see and learn more about these characters!!
