I've been hiding from the Guild since I was born.

If they knew about my magic, they would kill me in a heartbeat.

I should be avoiding them, but instead, I enter the Guild as a regular human recruit.

Why?

Papa went missing after a mission, and I need answers.

I realize I might have bitten off more than I can chew when my new instructor is the guy
I kissed a few months before.

It doesn't seem like Cade recognizes me without my disguise, but if he does and blows the whistle, I'm as good as dead and so is Papa.

My Review

The Assassin's Daughter, is the very first installment in the The Hybrid Chronicles by Shana Vernon.

Exceptionally written and riveting, it sets the stage for a highly promising brand new series.

The Plot

Lenna is the secret child of a Guild assassin who has gone missing. While she has managed to keep her identity a secret for so long, she must now enter the ranks of the Guild and train as an assassin, undercover and withholding her powerful abilities.

However, along the way she discovers much more than she ever imagined, gaining friendships and unexpected allies, as well as dangerous enemies...

The Characters

Our main character, Lenna, is a great heroine, with so many amazing powers. She is fierce, she is loyal and ready to go to great lengths for her father and loved ones.

Moreover, there is an abundance of great characters in this book, about whom we discover more and more along with Lenna, an element that satisfies the reader and makes us feel like we are the ones living this adventure.

The World Building

The world building is really good, with a great magic system and so many paranormal creatures and entities intertwining. Basically, there are humans, assassins with special abilities and vampires, but we soon discover that there is much more to that...

Plot twists

One more thing I deeply enjoyed in this book was the fact that there were so many plot twists.

Just when I thought I knew what to expect of the plot, a new revelation would come to light and shock me to my core.

Overall Thoughts & Rating

This novel is an amazing experience and I can't wait to see how the series progress!

4 solid stars for a great heroine, an extremely well-thought plot, romantic interests that made me swoon and friends who made me get emotional!

Review | The Cupcake Caper

Title
: The Cupcake Caper
Series: Undercover Cat #1
Author: Kelle Z. Riley
Publisher: Curtis Brown Unlmited

My rating: ★★★★☆

Sexy, humorous and brilliantHow could you go wrong with such a protagonist?

The Cupcake Caper is the first installment in the cozy mystery Undercover Cat series by Kelle Z. Riley, following Dr. Bree Watson.

Bree has earned a PhD in chemistry and is a full time chemist in a company. But, when one of her coworkers dies unexpectedly and all the clues seem to incriminate her, what is she going to do? She sure isn't willing to leave everything to luck or to the hot detective that is suspecting her, thus soon launching her own undercover investigation.

I love cozy mysteries, because they contain the element of mystery, but also humor and steaminess are unmistakably present.

This novel was such an accurate example of a cozy mystery, and I loved it for that!
It was fast paced, kept you guessing and being all starry-eyed along with the heroine.

To top it all of? Bree was so clever and such an accomplished professional, making you love her all that much more.
I prefer a clever, capable heroine over a damsel in distress, any day and in any gender!

This novel was such a spectacular journey.

I would like to thank the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with an e-arc, in exchange for an honest review.

Review | The Bear and The Nightingale

Title
: The Bear and The Nightingale
Series: Winternight Trilogy #1
Author: Katherine Arden
Publisher: Del Rey Books

My rating: ★★★★☆

A magical tale with dangerous creatures and an atmospheric vibe!

The Bear and The Nightingale is the first installment in the Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden, a truly magical story inspired by Russian legends and tales.

After Vasilisa's mother passed away, life for her and her family became hard. But, when her father introduces to his children his new wife, who is set on forbidding any spiritual honoring and sending her stepdaughter away one way or another, little do they know of the danger that is going to loom over their lives.

Our heroine is Vasilisa, a fierce and brave protagonist, fit to an amazing novel like this. I loved following her adventure and getting to know more about her life, the tales her nurse used to tell her and immerse myself in traditional Russian tales.

There was an intense atmosphere throughout this novel, with magic, reality and fairy tales blending perfectly into an unmistakably unique story. The winter was described so intensely, making the hardships the family experienced all that more heart felt.

Admittedly, I am not a huge fan of horror stories or tales and the fact that there were quite a few frightening elements in this novel, only serves to emphasize the amount of love I have in my heart for this story!

I found myself anxiously turning page after page, waiting to see how the story will unfold and what is going to happen next.
