ARC REVIEW: Assassin of Truths by Brenda Drake

This book was everything. It broke my heart with some of the losses that we experienced, but in the end it was everything I was hoping it would be and the perfect ending to a crazy adventure. I was WAY shipping Gia and Bastien in this book and I loved getting to watch them grow together. Throw in all the near death experiences and this book really has you on edge. You never know who is going to pop up, or who turns out to be a spy. Gia makes some hard choices in this book and it hard to watch her try to hold it together. She has grown so much since the first novel and in this book you really see her come into her own at the end. The story comes to a head and the battle we have all been dreading has arrived. I swear Brenda Drake likes to have her readers biting their nails, because by the end of this I was holding my breath and reading as fast as I could to see what was going to happen. This novel was the perfect blend of the previous two and everything I wanted. It wrapped up splendidly and I hope we see more from this family in the future! Thanks for the wild ride!

The gateways linking the great libraries of the world don’t require a library card, but they do harbor incredible dangers. And it’s not your normal bump-in-the-night kind. The threats Gia Kearns faces are the kind with sharp teeth and knifelike claws. Not to mention there’s an evil wizard trying to use his magical abilities to take her down. Because she has the keys to end his devious plan. That is, once she figures out what to do with them. With the handsome, cocky, and maybe-perfect-for-her Bastien by her side, Gia travels through the beautiful wizard havens and Mystik covens to gather the answers she seeks. The journey is harrowing, and it pits Gia against someone she loves. But there’s only one way to destroy her enemies—if she can uncover it before they catch up to her. Because sometimes facing our demons is the only way out.
