Reviving Izabel: In the Company of Killers, Book 2 | [J.A. Redmerski]

Reviving Izabel: In the Company of Killers, Book 2

Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned. Sarai's reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: Help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she'll do it alone no matter the consequences.

Publisher's Summary

Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned.

Sarai's reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: Help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she'll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up.

As Arthur Hamburg's right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.

But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.

    "edge of your seat tale laced with drama, heat and"
    Any additional comments?

    The tale picks up eight months after the final scenes from book one and Sarai is attempting a normal life. The problem; she is not normal. Sarai sets out to even the score and despite all her planning things go seriously wrong. She ends up back with Victor and ooh-la-la these two are on fire together. It is like looking at the sun. Of course, these two cannot just ride off into the sunset and the tale Redmerski takes us on will test them all.The tale shares both Sarai and Victor’s perspectives. Although more chapters are devoted to Sarai, we get inside both of their heads We get to know Victor more and see the incredible impact Sarai has had on him. Sarai is stronger, colder, and more determined than ever to lead the life she wants. These two and the circle they travel in are dark. At times, this is violent, and gritty. Other characters are present such as Victors partner, Fredrik Gustavsson. The man is smexy and unsettling. Victor’s brother while absent most of the tale plays a large roll towards the end. Redmerski holds nothing back as the plots twists and turns. There is drama, secrets and confessions. It was riveting, and I quickly consumed this.I listened to the audio version of Reviving Izabel and Kate Reinders nails the voice of Sarai. She brought Sarai’s thoughts and stone cold attitude to life. She even did an excellent job for Victor. Now comes the not so good part; Stephen Bel Davies did the voice for Victor, and it failed for me on some many levels. I know Victor is cold, has learned to suppress his emotions but the monotone delivery brought none of the Victor I experienced while reading. His voice for Sarai and other characters offered no real distinction. Sadly I am unsure if my rating might have been higher if I had read this or Reinders did the reading solo.The series has won a place for Redmerski among my favorite authors list, and I cannot wait for the release of The Swan & the Jackal, which will share Fredrik Gustavsson story. It is currently availabe in kindle/paper editions but will release on audio June 6th. Narrated By Luke Daniels, Andi Arndt, and Kate Reinders.Fans of dark, intense, action-packed suspense wrapped up with a romance and fleshed out characters need to read this series, STAT. Copy received in exchange for unbiased review.

    I liked Izabel, she knew what she wanted and went for it. Wouldn't take no for an answer.

    Can't say much for the narrator Stephen Bel Davies. To much of a lisp, but I liked Kate Reinders cool voice for Izabel.

    "If you haven't met Victor Faust..do it now!"

    This is book 2 of In the Company of Killers, it was better than the first and #1 was very good. These characters are assassins and along with murder comes romance and intrigue.
    The writing is wonderful, one of those stories that you can picture in your mind. The narration is good and will grow on you, I kind of like them now. #3 looks great and ready to download now!

    The relationship between Sarai and Victor. They both deserve a break.

    The various edgy points in the book.

    "Wow! Just WOW!"

    Now that's how you do a book 2! This was awesome... Ok... so this has to be classified as a romance book...because the smexy time was so good!

    So we see Sarai living a normal life after Victor took her home at the end of book 1... Which I was not happy about at all... But what was great about this book is how it shows the change in Sarai... she is kinda doing her own little growing up in this book... her childhood was taken from her... so now she is growing into her own, but as a killer, instead of a regular adult..

    Sarai, using the name Izabel now, goes to kill the fat pig (her first hit) from book 1. But guess what...she sucks! Well... she is pretty good, but she is just not trained...because Victor left her...So she goes to kill the piggy, but he totally turns the tables on her, and she just barely escapes...then she almost gets everyone she has come to know in her normal life, almost killed... and Victor swoops in to save her... Only that Victor has gone rouge because he didn't kill her!

    What a mess, but Victor and Izabel really do some soul searching and realize they are better together...plus Victor is still a bad-ass-assassin...so of course he is gonna start his own organization...but there is just one little problem... Izabel was not really trained by his old organization...and she has to go through it, in order to really become a killer...

    The ending was the bomb! I was so freaked out.. and the torture Izabel endures...and Victor's brother...I still want to just kill him.. from book 1 to book 2...he is such a douche, and I really hope Izabel shoots him back!

    Narration is the same format as book 1, not really bad, just dual narration is not needed I think.. both the narrators are really good, but simultaneous narration would have been better...

    Great credit, buy or sale...
