    The first Order of the Sicari romantic urban fantasy is a superb opening tale

    Although her parents strongly believed in the Order of the Sicari and encouraged her to do so likewise, the Chicago-based archeologist Emma Zale assumes the legend is myth and no more. Still their tales of the ancient order and their murders led Emma to study archeology as a way of honoring them.

    While on a dig, Emma is shocked to find evidence that the Sicari were real. Soon after, she uncovered her proof, her boss is murdered. When she meets Ares DeLuca he claims to be a Sicari telekinetic assassin. The Sicari war and the Praetorian Guards are at war with the latter committing ethnic cleansing. Unless Ares can find the Tyet of Isis, his people will become extinct. To prevent the genocide he needs Emma's help because he thinks she know where the ancient artifact is hidden; to stay alive she needs Ares' help because she thinks he is a great warrior, but her fear is he will also take her heart.

    The first Order of the Sicari romantic urban fantasy is a superb opening tale that focuses on a several millennia war between the Praetorian Guard and the Sicari assassins. The lead couple is a terrific pairing while the support cast enhances the sense of a long running deadly feud. Monica Burns has an excellent first act of what appears will be a wonderful series. Assassin's Honor is a spellbinding tale.

    Excellent Book

    Assasin's Honor is a captivating book that has an incredible story line. The main characters are emotionally griping with just the right amount of tension that leaves the reader breathless. It's the start to a great series!! It's a definite read!!

    Steamy, and a great new series!

    This is the first book in the series. I loved it! Very steamy, and a great story. Monica Burns weaves an excellent modern day story with a historical twist, plus, she throws in some archaeology. The main characters, plus several supporting, have paranormal abilities which come in very handy in several parts of the book. Very much looking forward to the second in the series, Assassin's Heart.

    Mind-blowing and sizzling!

    I wanted to write my review as soon as I finished the book, but as I was devoid of coherent thought, I figured waiting a day wouldn't hurt. Why provide a review filled with incomprehensible words? Besides, my keyboard wouldn't work well covered in drool. What is more sexy than a man with a sword and knows how to use it?

    Monica Burns has pulled me in and kept me reading in a way I've not experienced in a very long time. The mere atmosphere she set with the mysterious guild of assassins called The Order of Sicari is ingenious and steeped richly in an Italian nature so compelling, once you start reading, you can't stop until you learn more. I, for one, absolutely love archeology (and assassins if truth be known) and Ms. Burns incorporates so many elements of both along with insane psychic abilities in her novel that I found myself immensely disappointed when I finished Assassin's Honor. I want more. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    For once, I enjoyed a romantic suspense that was filled with true and interesting facts combined with an artistic flamboyant style of writing found few and far between on the bookshelves today.
    On an overall level, this novel gets a rating of 5. Gonna keep it forever, probably read and re-read a dozen times over.
    On the heat level, this novel rings the bell as the highest. Careful when handling Assassin's Honor, you may get burned.
