Other reviewers have compared these books to The Black Dagger Brotherhood but, the only thing these two series have in common is the narrator. Although this series is entertaining it is not near the level of BDB. For some listeners, that may be a good thing. This series isn’t as violent, the sexual content is much milder and the language is much cleaner. I have read reviews for the BDB in which these things were the very reasons why they did not enjoy the series; so this may be their perfect fit. Along with the bad things, however, this series does not have the character development or emotional depth of BDB either. In my opinion, this is a definite weakness, of this series. That being said, this is an entertaining, light listen that won’t have you crying in public. Of course, this is my personal opinion and I’m sure there are those who would disagree.

What would have made Blood Assassin better?
More action by the main characters Serra and Fane. The story started out slow and I thought the pace would eventually pick up but it never happened. I agree with one of the other reviewers Serra is supposed to be a powerful psychic but she gets her butt kicked throughout the book and whines incessantly. Fane is a major badass Sentinel but his character never really displays why he is so respected and feared.
Would you ever listen to anything by Alexandra Ivy again?
Yes, I am a big fan of this author and I have all of her Darkness series books. The story and the narration is not as good as the previous books.
How could the performance have been better?
Better dialogue and a different narrator might make this a better listening experience.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment is foremost in my mind when I recall listening to this audiobook. This story is about two paranormal beings trying to rescue a kidnapped human child and the journey to find her. I felt sad for the child's suffering but the book was slow paced and kind of boring. The romance between Serra and Fame is okay but not very hot.
Any additional comments?
I love this author and will buy more of her books. But, this is the first time that I fast forwarded one of her audio book.
