Great Sci Fi Adventure read...
Sci fi adventure...so fun! This is a book that takes place at an indeterminate future date when space travel is the norm. The main difference between this world and ours is the space travel and technology (to a certain extent...a lot of even the technology is the same.) There are not any aliens in this book. But what is slightly different in this world is the acceptance of assassinations. There is an Assassins Guild which works under very strict guidelines and rules, but there are also freelance assassins who have more freedoms, but are more likely to get caught up in a bad situation.
Misha is part of the Assassins Guild, whereas Rikki is a freelancer. They are tied together by something in Rikki's history that she doesn't remember. Misha does remember the event and is doing everything in his power to get her under the protective umbrella of the Guild. What neither one of them expects is the combustible chemistry between them. Even with that chemistry, these two are assassins. It is not in their best interest of their health to trust anyone, including each other.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I liked that the world was sci fi and futuristic, but wasn't all weird with aliens and weird environments. Besides the obvious technology differences, this could have been a current day romantic suspense and I liked that about it. That also meant there wasn't a huge complex new world to discover and learn also...another plus!
I liked Rikki and Misha and the way they interacted with each other. They had a great rapport when they were actually trusting each other. The suspense story line was a bit "meh"...I think that could have been interwoven to make it a bit more complex, but overall, this was a fun read and I will definitely pick up other Assassin's Guild books. The only question I have is...will they all feature Misha and Rikki or will the other books feature other couples? Honestly, I hope that we continue following Misha and Rikki. I think that a series built on them as a couple and working out their different assignments as different types of assassins could be really fun reading. Nevertheless, I plan to continue to follow this series.
