Review: Reviving Izabel ( In the Company of Killers #2 ) by J. A Redmerski

Reviving Izabel by J. A. Redmerski

Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned. 

Sarai’s reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she’ll do it alone no matter the consequences. Knowing that Sarai cannot become what she wants to be overnight, Victor begins to train her and inevitably their complicated relationship heats up. 

As Arthur Hamburg’s right-hand man, Willem Stephens, closes in on his crusade to destroy Sarai, she is left with the crushing realization that she may have bitten off more than she can chew. But Sarai, taking on the new and improved role of Izabel Seyfried, still has a set of deadly skills of her own that will prove to be all she needs to secure her place beside Victor.

But there is one test that Izabel must face that has the potential to destroy everything she is working so hard to achieve. One final test that will not only make her question her decision to want this dangerous life, but will make her question everything she has come to trust about Victor Faust.




I loved Book 1 Killing Sarai, but this sequel didn't hold my interest. Sarai was now wannabe assassin and demanded Victor to train her. She was so annoying with her lack of discipline and trust, questioning everything that Victor did.

Victor was broody and quiet as usual. But I can't understand why Sarai is so important to him. Sorry, I don't see the love here.

I think the author tried to build up Fredrik as the next hero in the series, but mostly I just felt grossed out by his 'work'. Eww. I guess the romance didn't work for me this time, but I felt like the suspense/thriller plot was really solid.

Rating 3/5
