The Assassin’s Legacy by D. Lieber
(Minte and Magic Adventure #2)
Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Steampunk
Expected Release: October 12, 2021
He hasn’t been Aleksandr Sergeyevich Volonov, legendary monster-hunting assassin for ten years. Now, he is only Sasha, charming deckhand on a merchant airship so recently destroyed by pirates.
All he wants is to find another job and keep moving. But that simple plan is thwarted when his sister sends an assassin to murder him. His only choice is to return to Saint Petersburg and renounce his claim to his family’s title.
Trapped by his late father’s machinations, Sasha finds himself surrounded by death threats, engaged to a brutal villainess, shadowed by his cheeky assassin, and forced to lead the organization bent on eliminating all supernatural creatures from the Russian Empire.
As he struggles to keep hold on the man he is, Sasha must face who he used to be in this modern steampunk fantasy adventure full of folklore, banter, and artifice.
What I thought
I received a copy of this book from the Author and R&R Book Tours, for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This is the second book in the Minte and Magic Adventure series, however, it can be read as a stand-alone. These appear to be companion novels and I did not read the first book in this series and I was not lost at all.
This was an interesting story and I really enjoyed the world. I felt this story was very chill even though it was about assassins. It kept me interested and I found myself not wanting to put this book down. I loved that the chapters were short, even though that led me to over an hour of saying just one more chapter after I should have gone to bed.
I found this story to be very predictable, however, that did not take away from my enjoyment of the story. I may have guessed the majority of the things that came to pass I enjoyed the ride of how we got there. I really loved the alternate Russian time period, due to the way the story was laid out I kept forgetting that the story is set in 2017. The concept was really cool and I have never seen this done before.
I highly recommend this book!
