Knight Assassin by Rima Jean
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Pub. Date: March 4, 2014
Reading this book was like a fresh new air for me. I had never read about Arabian assassins or something like that, and I am really glad that I gave this book a chance.
It had always been Zayn and her mother Miriam against the world. The villagers feared them, especially Zayn with the strange and inhuman power she possess. Then her mother was killed because she was accused of witchcraft. When she was about to end her life, Zayn was offered a new life purpose, join the Assassins and life for the sole purpose of revenge.
Zayn was just a teenager, and she probably had already experienced more pain than guy at war. She saw her own mother burn alive in front of her eyes, and she was raped just after witnessing her mother's death. There is definitely sympathy from me for this heroine, but there is more. I really admired this teenage and bad-ass girl. She overcome everything, even the toughest conflicts. There are several points where I just couldn't understand her way of thinking, but I still admire her nevertheless. And there's Earic Goodwin, the fair boy. He's a warrior, with a good heart. Like Zayn, Earic doesn't have a good start. Even worse, it was his family who feared him. I love him (enough said). Oh! and the romance between Earic and Zayn could be considered slow, but the way Zayn had always loved the fair boy from the start made it really pure, and cute? I'm really glad they end up together.
The writing style was excellent! at least it was for me. The set was described really well that I could actually feel as if I was in Arab. And to be able to peek a little bit inside the Arabian culture and things about knights and assassins was really awesome. Love this book so much!
