excellent addition

excellent addition to the series that gives insight into Jie, Tian and other members of the black lotus clan. To discover the truth about the many unanswered questions have lead to more questions than answers.

More awesomeness!

These series of novellas just keeps getting better and better with each installment. In this fourth title there's more intrigue, more twists, more sex, more characters who are not what they appear to be and more Jie and Tien. The narration like with the first three is excellent!

The assassins get sexy in book 4

JC Kang ramps up the sexy time in the fourth installment of his novella series about assassins posing as whores.

We get another new PoV character in this one and she goes by the name of Wen. It's a much more somber point of view than before, with much of the on-page time given over to the mourning of a lost character. It's actually quite refreshing when most of the deaths have been pretty much glossed over, and gives a good emotional anchor.

There's a lot more sex in this one. A LOT more. But it's not graphic and it feels genuine. The main characters are posing as prostitutes and they don't lend much significance to the role they have to play, but make a note of the rare moments of intimacy that they find often between each other.

The 4th installment does feel a little episodic as it starts to fall into the trap of being resolved in the same way as the previous installments. Jie does some cool assassin stuff and gets the job done, Tian saves the day by putting all the clues together and figuring out the mystery. And the bad guy would have gotten away with it if not for those pesky kids! It's a pattern and not necessarily a bad one as it involves all the characters playing to their strengths, and the twists and turns are twisty and turny enough that they're not obvious. However, this one feels like the first episode in a 2 parter. The ending isn't as neat as the previous novellas. There's a lot of balls still in the air. Now I guess I'll just have to wait for book 5.

The narration, as before, is excellent.

3.5 stars.
