My Review:Ah, Gena Showalter does it again! Seriously she is one boss lady at writing stories. Even her short stories are amazing and full of awesome.
I was really excited to read about Fox and The Darkest Assassin did not disappoint one bit. After Fox kills a bunch of Sent Ones on accident after Distrust takes over. Now Bjorn is tasked with executing Fox. Except when she attacks him completely naked he can't fight his response to her and ends up taking her prisoner.
I love love loved getting to know more about Fox. She's had a very harsh childhood and I loved how she continued to prove Bjorn how even "higher beings" can make a mistake. I loved Fox, I thought she was fabulous. She was no-nonsense and she didn't pull her punches. She was caring in a non-typical way, but that just had me loving her more.
Bjorn was a guy who has been stuck in a bad abusive marriage with no way out. Being a Sent One has given him meaning and a family. I enjoyed him very much as well and enjoyed how Fox kept him on his toes.
This is definitely a story I would highly recommend and this is an amazing series. Can't wait to read more.
