#Review: ASSASSIN QUEEN by Anna Kashina



  5 of 5 stars

What an incredible final book to the Majat Code series! With heart-pounding suspense and so many twists and turns, the Guildmaster Mai, along with his ally Prince Kyth Dorn, leads an army to defeat the evil Kaddim, all the while trying to keep his beloved Kara from descending into madness from a Kaddim mind link and turning on everyone she loves.

It was refreshing to see a strong female lead character and even when Kara is showing her softer side to her lover Mai, there is still an element of danger about her. She's a diamond ranked Majat assassin and she's always on guard. Ms. Kashina does a spectacular job letting the reader into Kara's mind as she fights the Kaddim mind link and Mai's character holds such a depth to it, one could not help but fall in love with him. He's the Guildmaster, the highest ranking Majat and yet, he must also try to temper his actions regarding Kara as she becomes more and more linked with the Kaddim. The struggle he faces would surely tear a lesser man apart.

There are quite a few surprises along the way and I could hardly read fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. The ending was fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed this final book and fans of fantasy will definitely have a new series to devour. Highly Recommended.
