Review…Immortal Assassin by Carolyn Jewel

“TEMPTED BY REVENGE…

Grayson Spencer is hellbent on killing the dark mage who destroyed her life. But when her attempt fails, she is forced to turn to Durian, a feared demon and expert assassin. Newly armed with powerful magic she’s barely able to control, she’ll do whatever it takes to complete her mission–even surrender to a dangerous fiend whose eyes promise unimaginable pleasure.

BOUND BY DESIRE…

Sworn to protect all mages, Durian can’t let Gray threaten the uneasy peace among demons, humans, and mages. So he proposes a deal: He’ll train Gray to master her gift if she’ll bind herself magically to him, submitting to his control. As Gray’s powers intensify, so too does Durian’s hunger for this fierce, irresistible woman. When the dark mage makes a final play for Gray, will the passion she and Durian share be the key to their survival or the seed of their destruction?”

From page one you are plunged into a world of Kin and Mages.  Kin are powerful demons who use their magic to transform themselves into beautiful beings that closely resemble humans, while Mages are powerful wizards whose secret long term goal is to rid the world of free Kin.

Grayson Spencer, a human, is forced to choose sides when a evil Mage turns her life upside down.  In an attempt to kill him she comes face to face with Durian, an assassin, a Kin.  Unable to let Gray complete her mission due to a treaty the warlord he is bound to made with the Mage she wants to kill, Durian works with Gray to find another means for her revenge while trying not to fall in love.

Immortal Assassin is a great start to a new series.  It moves quickly and is a refreshing change from the usual paranormal subjects of vampires and shifters.  Carolyn creates an attention grabbing new world. The characters are interesting and easy to follow.  I would definitely pick up the next book in the series.
