The Black Wolf (In the Company of Killers, #5) by J.A. Redmerski

23551387Damn, JA Redmerski did it again! This book was was so much fun to read and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

This book was plot driven and moved in a fast pace. Though fast, it wasn’t rushed nor did I feel like any part of the book was neglected; all bases were covered thoroughly. Although the mission didn’t seem all that interesting at first read of the synopsis, Redmerski was able to start the book off full throttle and had me hooked. She intricately weave the characters personality in there smoothly. The book was not only plot driven, it was character driven. We learn more about how Niklas thinks and works and it’s fascinating. We also see how Izabel embraces her own “vulnerabilities”. The traits that make her seem weak or compassionate only strengthens her character and makes her more human. Although the book is about a group of assassins, seemingly inhumane killers who are cold and calculating, but Redmerski is able to write them as convincing humane people who are completely muliti-dimential and possess conviction.

Overall a spectacular read! I look forward to the next installment although the cliffhanger sounds rather ominous. I can’t wait to see what Redmerski thinks of next!
