“I’m not an assassin!” My head snapped up and I saw that he was kneeling right beside me.

So the first teaser was the opening line! I love a book that has that perfect first sentence, and I’m definitely a fan of this one. The second, is to share my love for Nyx and Ignifex’s interaction, which is usually is infused with banter and a little bit teasing (:

Review for this at the end of the week!
