On a planet and
in a time where business is cutthroat and the power of elite
families is everything, Meli Galdes has advanced her
family’s interests by honing and using her skills as an
assassin. Now she’s more than ready to retire, but before
she does so, her kinsmen have asked her to fulfill one last
assignment: kill Celino Carvanna. It’s a task that should
please her – Celino all but ruined her life more than a
decade before. But even as she lays a sensual trap to break
Celino, Meli can’t ignore the hold he still has on her
emotions. When the opportunity for revenge arises, will
Meli be able to bring herself to take it?
danger, and romance mix together in this seductive game of
cat and mouse. Silent Blade is both exciting
and fascinating, with two protagonists that would be the
perfect match for one another, were it not for old wounds
and new obstacles barring their path to happiness.
Meli is a
wonderful heroine. She’s brilliant and deadly, but her
strength is balanced evenly with her femininity. I admired
her for this and truly felt for her when I read about how
Celino’s actions devastated her in the past. As for her
target, Celino is deadly both in business and with a blade.
His razor-sharp mind makes him a fitting opponent for Meli,
but his ruthlessness is belied by his desire for her. I was
enthralled by their play and captivated by the world the
authors created, unable move, never mind stop reading until
I had finished Silent Blade. This was the
first story I have read by the husband and wife writing team
that is Ilona Andrews and it absolutely won’t be the last.
