Captured, tortured and lied to, Aya now lives in the world of mortals. Helping Archangel, she doesn't know the truth behind what happened twenty years ago. But she does find the one to blame.
Now two enemies must join forces and fight a long standing bond so they may finally have the justice to set the past to rest.
I can't keep my hands off that one click button when it comes to Felicity Heaton's work! I doubt anyone else can either!
I have a real love of the world that Felicity Heaton brings to life in this series. Her layering and world building makes it easy to picture in your mind the scenes in the book as they play out. There's an overlap of other stories that can be found in each book, it's subtle but ties together very nicely and gives you a 'Oh yeah, that happened in xxxx's story' moment when you are reading. For me, this continuity and the consistent timelines that Felicity threads through the books all add to the story arc.
Marked by an Assassin is Harbin and Aya's book. Both are snow leopards living far from their homeland but they have a connection - in more ways than one!!
The Assassins Guild that Harbin works for has been hired to hunt down and kill a snow leopard, a task that our hero makes sure he gets to take on as he is intrigued as to what the shifter has done to warrant the hit. At first, he doesn't recognise Aya as one of his pride as he's been gone from his village for two decades after being used and duped by an Archangel huntress. He has become hardened and cold since the events all those years ago and is determined that he will carry out his job and it'll be nothing more than another assignment, even though the mark is another snow leopard, but when he encounters the female things don't go quite to plan.
Aya lives in London, keeping her head down and flitting among the fae, and has done since not long after the night the Archangel team decimated her village and killed their kin. She seems to be a mark in this game but as things progress Harbin stats to wonder, is she as innocent as she seems or is there more going on that at first glance?
The story is action packed as you'd expect from Ms Heaton. There are secrets and lies, betrayals, a deep need for revenge on both their parts but is it for the right reasons? The connection and chemistry between our leads is obvious pretty much from the start though it takes one of them a little longer to realise what's going on and when the penny finally drops they have to make some tough choices and decide what they should do for the best.
We meet up again with some of the characters we have already been introduced to in the series so far and get a glimpse into one or two characters who I'm hoping will have their own stories to tell in the future! ;)
Another great read and addition to the Eternal Mates series. I can't wait to see what happens next!!
For me it's a 5* read!
Harbin is Cavanaugh's younger and only brother. Harbin is mentioned before in previous books of this series. Harbin does something foolish and is exiled from his snow leopard pride and this sets him on the road to vengeance and shapes him to become an assassin. Hartt is an elf that is founder & Chief of The Assassins Guild. He recruits Harbin and allows Harbin to focus his rage and hone his skills. Aya has always been Harbin's fated female and even at a young age, this knowledge scares her. Her fear confuses young Harbin and pushes him to be reckless. Given a second chance through fate, the two lovers get their chance to rekindle their need to mate and become one. But using one of them as bait to lure their prey so they may get their revenge, this offense is what settles their chaotic feelings & reveal their love for one another.
Key points in the two protagonists’ pasts were established in the opening chapters giving the characters a lifetime’s worth of history in one quick pass, so that way Felicity Heaton was able to get to the core of this title faster. This approach suited me perfectly because the plot was of the just-keeps-on-giving variety, and the author definitely made the most of her 263 pages.
Even though this series can be read out of order, we get a different perspective on a pivotal scene that occurred in TAKEN BY A DRAGON, and I’ve already given two of the previous novels top ratings prior to doing so again with #8 which means that you have nothing to lose by starting with KISSED BY A DARK PRINCE. Anyway, I digress, that was far from being the only memorable part; all of the action rocked too!
Initially, I didn’t have much of an opinion of Harbin aside from the knowledge that he was Cavanaugh’s brother, but combine twenty years worth of assassin training with an unrelenting quest for vengeance and a soft spot for his childhood crush, and you have an irresistible male lead. Aya was quite the spitfire as well, and Hartt / Fuery were a curious pair that I hope we’ll see more of in the future.
MARKED BY AN ASSASSIN had ooh-la-la in all of the right places!
