Church of the assassin is the fifth book in the Nexus series. It is a thriller story about an assassin named Alexiares who has survived a deadly attack from her own sect. She inherits a baby, and while she only knows how to fix cars or kill people, she now has new responsibilities which come with taking care of a baby. The baby becomes her reason to continue fighting back from the hunters that are killing to find them.
Although this book is in a series, it is a standalone story, so there was no trouble reading along and getting into the action. The characters and their personalities were interesting to read. They were relatable and grew on you as you read along. The female protagonist was solid and decisive. I liked that about her.
The length of the story was long. The author was in his element and told the story very well. The scenes were explained in detail, and every thought or movement was well described. The story had a steady pace to it, and the concept of the story being how the Church needed the assassins was novel.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read action thriller stories.Tweet
