“I hide in plain sight, do not speak. Do not seek. Do not think of The Unique. You shall only sneak a peek, do not ever let it leak.”
The Council’s Academy is situated in a world called Lyndor. It is run by fourteen of the strongest supernatural that govern over the shapeshifters, vampires, warlocks, Nephi’s and demons. They train Star to become an Assassin, and she begins to do the dirty work for them. The world is full of superpowers, immortals, and mortals with extraordinary abilities that walk on earth and are unknown to humans.
The Red Rebels are the ones causing the trouble. They are recruiting and killing the supernaturals. The Council believes that there is a mole in their department giving them top-secret information that is going to cause big problems. Star is sent on different missions to kill 21 rebels, however; as they die, the rebels tell her things that she begins to wonder what is going on.
The story consists with chapters that go back and forth explaining fours years ago and then returning to the present time, giving you a glimpse of how Star becomes an Assassin and what she is doing at present. I found this style of a layout to be very entertaining. Just when you thought that you were given enough information to figure Star out, you were taken back to the present and again back to four years ago. This kept me intrigued and made me want to know what happened in the past while I was waiting to read on the present.
The style of writing was very friendly, and the characters in the book were a shadow compared to Star, the lead character. The love and emotion she had for her family were portrayed very beautifully, and I found the plot to be very well put together.
Besides a few editing issues, I did not see any major faults in the book. I believe the author has great potential in writing stories in the same genre. The world setting and the descriptions were sufficient making the reader always aware of what was going on and keeping them interested in wanting to know more.
I recommend this book to everyone. You won’t regret reading this book.

Star Watson was thrust into a world of the supernatural by accident. Since then she's done everything that The Council asked of her. Her only thought was her family is safe from harm but that illusion is shattered by Star sighting her sister in the very last place she should be. The Red Rebels have been trying to get Star's attention for some time now but nothing worked in their favor until now. Star's family is kidnapped. Star must make her enemy her ally if she's to succeed in her task. What makes Star special? What truths will Star learn? Your answers await you in Assassin.
What if everything you ever knew was a lie? That is the premise which creates this stunning story from a new to me author. The characters and story were rich, bold, creative, unique, complex, compelling, and raw. I look forward to more from this series and author.
Normally I would not even pick up a book where the series wasn't completed. I am that impatient! However, I didn't realize this was the start of a series until I had already started. I am not even a little sorry though. Looking forward to the next installment and the further development of both this character and what looks like her love interest.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
The blurb caught my attention, and the book held it from beginning to end. Star is a girl with teenage problems that gets introduced to the supernatural world the hard and painful way. She does everything to protect her dad and sister, even let them think she's dead. She puts her trust in the supernatural Council, but starts to doubt them after she finds out they have been lying to her.
She meets Aaron from the Red Rebels, and stops to actually listen to what he had to say about her 'bosses'. He takes her to meet his leaders, and now Star must decide who to believe.
This book is full of adventure, but is also filled with the drama of a teenagers life. I can't wait for book 2!
