Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough-White

Dawn's blog tour is well under-way and I'm excited to get to be part of it. I enjoyed reading her book and hope that the rest of you will as well. Be sure to visit the rest of the stops on Dawn's tour.

Synopsis:
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.

Our Review:
This was an exciting adventure that made it hard to put the book down. I actually fell asleep reading it because I just didn't want to stop. (made for some interesting dreams) I love these kind of stories and this one is one I can see becoming one of my favorites. I really can't wait to read the second book in the series. If you're looking for adventure with a twist, this is definitely a must-read!!!
