A great Medieval romance! “Everyone loves a good medieval romance! And it’s been awhile since I’ve read my last one. Seriously. I think it’s been about 2 years!! So I was very excited to read Angel’s Assassin, to say the least. In order to gain his freedom, Damien, an assassin has one more task to complete, to kill the lovely, Lady Aurora. He’s ruthless, cold hearted, and has no interest in his next victim. Until he discovers that Aurora is more than just another mission. She has a passionate heart that sees the good in everyone, including Damien. He has four days to finish his task. And Damien has to decide which one is more invaluable: his freedom or Aurora’s life.
Something I appreciated was the manner of Ms. O’Donnell’s writing. It flows with just enough descriptions, and conversations to keep you easily focused.
Damien- What I enjoyed about him so much was he wasn’t a brooding hero. He WANTS someone to love to him. His past has left many scars on his emotions, but it’s so apparent to see that he doesn’t want to be the person he is. He desperately wants a way out!
Aurora- Has a very compassionate heart that wants to help everyone out. She is a beautiful person, and to everyone around her it’s easy to see that the beauty is also inward too.
I felt like both of them together was a good match. Their both trying so hard not to be what everyone expects. Both of them have hidden secrets that no one knows, and the two of them are scared to find out what the other would think if those secrets were revealed!
Another thing that I thoroughly liked was that even though this book focuses on Damien and Aurora. There are other characters mixed into the book- both evil/innocent- that give the plot an edge and make you want to know what exactly is being hidden from everyone! I like a good amount of mystery. It makes me all the more anxious to click on to the next page!!!
Angel’s Assassin is a great read. Very well done, Ms. O’Donnell!!”
