Publisher's Summary

Aeron’s Legacy is to protect the innocent. Luke’s Legacy is to lead his fellow assassins into a new generation. When a traitor tries to kill them both, they must gamble lives they’ve sworn to protect, to ensure the survival of their hidden society.

But, only one of these assassins has the true murderer in their sights, while the other gambles an innocent life. As the body count rises around them, Aeron and Luke must determine which lives are worth saving and which deaths they can justify, in order to protect each other and stop the Legacy from being destroyed.

Warning: This book contains topics that some readers may find triggering. These sensitive topics include violence against children, and the death of children. There is also mention - not in detail - of sexual assault and domestic violence. This book is thus recommended for listeners 18+ years of age.

So, this book turned out to not quite be for me.

Aeron's father's character arc was one of my favorites, though I'm not sure why it wrapped the way it did. He and Ivan carried the story for me, and I would've loved to see more from them.

As for the main team of assassins, I'm not sure why these people who've trusted each other explicitly for the sake of all their lives and shared everything have suddenly decided to hide everything from each other, even when it puts them in danger.

Especially Luke. He turned his back on all his morals and oaths to protect Aeron, hiding it all from her, when coming clean with her would've kept her safer.
And she wasn't much better.

All told, this story is basically what happens when a tight knit team forgets everything they've ever learned about working together.

And the author probably should've done more research on cars to make a main character a mechanic. At one point, Aeron was tearing down and cleaning an engine. Cool.

But she was holding a single cylinder. Not quite possible. Unless she meant a cylinder sleeve (which would've required a press to get it out) or a slave cylinder for the brakes (but why remove that when cleaning the engine?).

And I really didn't care for the ending. It was abruptly cut off, and the amount of guilt that was put on Aeron for the things Luke did just didn't sit right with me.

It feels like there should be a second book, but I don't think there's going to be a sequel.

For a book about assassins, it sure left a lot of loose ends.

The audiobook narration was good. It got even better for me (a fan of Bob's Burgers and Archer) when I realized that the voice used for Aeron's dad sounded like Bob Belcher (so like Archer but not hitting on every woman around) and the voice used for Aeron was like a combination of the Belcher kids. Gina Louise Belcher. Strange, I know, but it honestly made it better for me. Lol.

A good story worth listening to

A good story that hits just about every major topic you’d expect associated with a book called The Assassin’s Legacy.
Love, betrayal, murder, greed, suspense and family. It has the type of suspense where you may find yourself wondering if you would make the same hard decisions the characters made or if you would take a different approach.
Overall it was entertaining and well worth checking out.
