If you don’t have a Kindle, or the Kindle app get one immediately so you can read Silent Blade. Sometimes I find it hard to get into science fiction books, because the lingo is headache inducing, but Ilona Andrews creates a new world that’s not hard to understand. Set in the future it features powerful families who stand apart from others because of their biological enhancements. They’re called the Kinsmen who are like the modern day Mafia. Meli Galdes excised herself from her family, training herself to be the best silent blade for her kin. She has killed many to protect her family, but always after careful study and self-defense. But to top it all off, she’s coming out of retirement for one last hit: Celino Carvanna-the man who ruined her life, and broke her heart.
This book was deliciously romantic, and although at first I wanted to hate Celino I found myself rooting for him and Meli. Meli is a awesome kick ass woman that I instantly liked. I think if you like Ann Aguirre’s Sirantha Jax novels definitely give this novella a read. It’s awesome!
