Publisher's Summary

Adopted by Brahma Corp's Assassin Guild and raised as one of their own, Malina Hayes is about to make her 50th kill. After bringing down 49 of London's worst criminals, this latest job shouldn't be a big deal. But if Malina is successful, she'll receive her first milestone mark. Ascension in the ranks, better pay, and a swanky flat in Soho all sound like very good reasons to make this kill count.

But fate and destiny have different plans for Malina. Seconds away from receiving the coveted milestone mark, Malina is torn away from the world she knows and thrust onto a new path - one where the purity of her soul will determine the very fate of mankind. Trouble is, Malina's kill orders were a lie. The targets she assassinated were innocents, and each one has left a terrible stain on her soul.

Stains she must now remove, at any cost.

Atoning for the blood of 50 victims is no mean feat, especially for someone who has spent their entire life killing. But if Malina fails, the lock on the gates of the underworld will crumble to dust. And we all know what happens when a legion of demons is unleashed upon the world....

Especially when they have their sights set on you.

Pretty Good

This is an interesting concept. The world created and the characters are well developed. The pacing is a a bit slow at times, but it doesn't detract from the story. Naqvi does a good job bringing the story to life. I'll get the next book to see how the story develops

Awesome Narrator

This is the first audible book I have from narrator Zehra Jane Naqvi and she has done a spectacular job. Her performance has moved her to my top 2 female list. I liked the story pretty well. There were several times I had to roll my eyes over the main characters thoughts or actions. I am not the hugest fan of love triangles, especially if they go on more than one book. And strong female leads who are frozen with fear or breathless as many times as this MC was. I will get book 2 and see if those things change hopefully. The basis of the book, being a gatekeeper, was very interesting. So I’m looking forward to see if the character strengthens up in the next book after her coming into her new role.

Hmmmm

I'm really not sure what to think about this book. It started out interesting but quickly took a turn for the worse. The story became highly sexual for several chapters with an occasional reminder of the plot that I found interesting. I really don't know what to say about it.
