Publisher's Summary

"Evil's Unlikely Assassin is a promising urban fantasy debut that features all that's great about the genre--action, attitude, and ass-kicking." (Jaye Wells, USA Today best-selling author of The Sabina Kane and Prospero's War series)

Vampire Alexis Black is on a mission - to rejoin the human race. Coerced into signing an ironclad contract by an angel-with-attitude, Alexis must hunt down and assassinate at least one vampire, werewolf, or creepy crawly every night for 50 years to become human again. Too bad the contract didn’t mention the badass vampire who now rides shotgun in her brain, insatiable bloodlust, or her new I-hate-everything-with-fangs sidekick. If she can fulfill her end of the bargain, her humanity is restored, if not she will be destroyed.

But when a revenge-seeking bloodsucker threatens her city, Alexis must risk everything to ensure there’s a humanity to return to. Since her vampire nature is her greatest weapon to defeat the monsters that threaten her friends and future, Alexis must choose to accept her inner beast or watch those she loves die.

Unique Adult Urban Fantasy

The story was a bit confusing at first. I felt lost and thought that perhaps this book was not for me, but fortunately, I stayed with it until things were sorted out and explained. About 2-3 hrs in, I really started getting into the story and started enjoying the characters more. There is quite a bit of action and some twists and turns I did not see coming.

The narration was pretty good and brought the story to life. I enjoyed her multiple voices that made it easy to know who was speaking.

This was really an unusual take on vampires. Alexis is very unique and it took me a bit to figure out why. She has a dark past and a unique pact that makes her "Evil's Assassin". If you start reading and get confused, keep going things will be explained and all will make sense in due time.

I'm looking forward to the second book. I want to see how her unique team continues to work together to protect humans and search for an old adversary.

The story concluded without a big cliffhanger which I'm grateful for.

Warmed Up To Story And Narrator

When I started listening to this story, I wasn't sure that I was going to like it. I wasn't sure if Ms. Stephens was a good choice to tell me Alexis Black's story. Then as I continued to listen, I came to the conclusion that she was the perfect choice. Since this story is from Alexis' point of view, it would be strange to hear a man tell the story. And eventually I came to form, in my mind, what Alexis might look and act like. Her weapon of choice seemed to have a life of its own which I don't think I would feel if I went and read the book instead.

Ms. Windrow had me thinking of possibilities. It's possible that there's an Alexis Black out there somewhere. She has challenges both internal and the world around her. Now she doesn't fight evil on her own - she has a partner. There were times that I couldn't decide whether I liked him or not. That just shows how good the author is at her job. There's a lot going on here since Alexis has a really tough job. She's a strong female character and not worried about damaging a fingernail.

Once I finally got into the story, I had to listen every chance I got. I even got to enjoy most of the secondary characters. They all helped move the story along. Nothing felt out of place - that it didn't fit the scene. Does it make me mean that I actually started rooting for the enemy of the piece? Make no mistake, I didn't like him but knowing he was still around meant that my adventure with this author, maybe this narrator, and one kick a** woman isn't over yet.

I voluntarily reviewed an Audiobook copy of this book.

Great Audible Listen🎧 A Fabulous Urban Fantasy!

4.5 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is a well written, well told action packed story that immediately grabs your attention and holds it to the end. The storylines are interesting, imaginative and original. Jenn Windrow created a fascinating world with supernatural creatures, vampires, angels & shifters who live amongst humans. The lead character, Alexis Black, an anti-vampire vampire, who made a deal with the an angel so she could be returned to humanity. Part of her deal is to not kill humans and to capture vampires and work with a human partner, Reaper. She meets some interesting character, including an old vamp friend turned ghost, who is one of my favorite characters. The action in this book is non-stop, there is plenty of drama, suspense and some romance too. Jean Windrow, thank you for this great & entertaining story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Chelsea Stephens does a wonderful job narrating the story and bringing the characters to life. She sets the perfect tone for the story and adds the right amount of dramatic flair. She is an entertaining storyteller. Thank you for the great listen.

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

This book is an unusually different but very good. I have never come across such and unusual storyline but it was so interesting and I loved it. Jenn Windrow has a great imagination and a great writing style and approach to this story. I can't wait to see what happens next!

No spoilers

This was a first read/listen for this author for me. And must say not bad there was issues with this first book though. It moved very quickly a bit to quickly in spots there needed to be more explanation in a few areas but over all a good start. I will tell you in the next 2 books Windrow fixed this issue and books 2 and 3 were excellent so don't let the 1st book keep you from moving on with this series. Narration was done fantastic loved this narrator she brought these characters to life and makes you not stop listening. I would love to get more books from this author and narrator.

Enjoyable and intoxicating

Great story line.
So enjoyable I jumped into book 2 before writing this review.
The narrator enrolls you into the world of the Assassin. You want her to kick butt and take names as the victor.

Refreshing, clever spin on new paranormal world

I’m a huge fan of paranormal and urban fantasy reads, and when I came across this new-to-me author and series, I just had to see what it was all about. What a refreshing and clever spin on a new and fascinating paranormal world, with a kick-ass vampire assassin/heroine who I love everything about! Alexis Black’s story is quite unique and what makes her so much different than the average vampire, besides sharing her body with another, is that she still has a hold of her humanity and that allows her to fight for humans and rid the world of what she truly despises… those that have destroyed her family and taken her soul. Alexis is joined by quite an interesting cast of secondary characters, and at times it’s quite comical how they “get along”. My favorite by far is Nathan… and I’m SO glad I listened to the audio because the narrator, Chelsea Stephens, brought him to life with the perfect British accent and zaniness to his lines. As a whole the narration was amazing, and I loved getting to know the personalities of this unconventional bunch. I look forward to continuing with this series, and discovering how the rest of Alexis’ world unfolds.

This was a great urban fantasy novel with excellent narration and an engaging main character. The author does a good job with world building and dialog. I thought the author had a unique approach to vampires which was a nice surprise. All in all, I really enjoyed the listen and am looking forward to continuing the series.

Entertaining

Evil’s Unlikely Assassin is about a vampire who has agreed to work for an angel in exchange for the ability to be human again. The undead trade though comes with peril and risks but also rewards. The characters are likable and believable. The romance and bedroom scenes are well written. The narrator did a great job at a speed of about 1.5.

Quite fun, but not consistent universe

Probably ok for a TV episode, but I like my universe to have some consistency and my magic to have some thought out basis. Here it's just whatever she thinks of next, with little regard for whatever she thought of last. Teenage daydrem, not novel.

Can’t wait for book 2

Vampire Alexis Black wants to be human again so she makes a deal with an Angel , she has to kill one vampire , werewolf or other dangerous supernatural every night for 50 years. What the Angel fails to mention is the vampire with a blood lust that rides shot gun in her brain and her side kick who hates all vampires.
When a vampire with a grudge starts attacking humans in her city Alexis risks everything to ensure safety to the humans but to do this she must embrace the inner beast and trust her side kick.
I really loved this book and Chelsea Stephens did such a great job narrating.
