I felt like Blood of Assassins was a decent enough read but not nearly as much fun as Age of Assassins. The story was decent enough but I did feel like it had a slowish start and overall I was not quite as engaged while listening to the happenings as I was while listening to those in the first book.
I also felt like Girton himself was the cause of a bit of frustration. There was a 5 year time jump between Age of Assassins and Blood of Assassins yet in that time Girton does not appear to have matured emotionally at all and often reacted to things like a moody 14 year old having a tantrum!
I did still enjoy this as it had a lot of the elements that made the first book a good story. This is a coming of age fantasy with a slightly YA feel to it but the action and mystery are decent enough.
Joe Jameson gave a great performance of the audio and he is a good fit for fantasy with younger lead characters.
