Cameo the Assassin
by Dawn McCullough-White
Rating: 3.9 Stars
Category: Dark Fantasy
Price: $0.99 Save $2
The Kingdom of Sieunes is rife with taverns, dirty streets, and clay pipe smoking citizens all toiling to feed their families and keep themselves in something little better than rags. With a foiled revolution just ten years prior still burning in the hearts of many, the royals enlist the aid of assassins to keep things in order.
The townsfolk entertain themselves by dreaming of better times to come and regaling in stories of the undead said to walk the graveyards at night… and of Cameo the killer with corpse-like eyes… Scarred and jaded Cameo is one of the most effective assassins in the employ of the Association, moving from one mission to the next as long as the alcohol keeps flowing.
Her acceptance of the murder-for-hire lifestyle is thrown into doubt when she meets a local highwayman with a penchant for fine clothes and women, and then she begins to think about breaking with the company but no one ever breaks with the Association under good terms.
Second Edition February 2012- has been re-edited/reworked
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I was intrigued from page one. The characters are real in all their flawed glory. I especially enjoyed the dialogue between characters. Opal is charming, Bel is a riot, and Cameo is incredibly interesting. I highly recommend this!
The story is entertaining, refreshing in its plot and fun to read. The storyline is well thought out and kept my interest. The story was a fun, romping good adventure. I look forward to reading the next installment in the series.
I really enjoyed this far more than I had expected. The author added some interesting twists to the story which really humanized the characters and set this apart from many of the novels within this genre. Well worth the purchase price! I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and hope for more from this author in the future.
All in all as a dark fantasy adventure this is one of the better ones I’ve read in recent times and I would highly recommend it.
Filled with action, intrigue, a splash of romance and fascinating characters, Cameo is an exceptional read! I loved the characters and never expected the twists and turns that the story takes. Dawn does a great job of keeping the reader in suspense while giving just enough to keep this reader curious to keep turning the pages. Very clever!!
