Review: Sister Assassin by Kiersten White
I loved Paranormalcy, and when I found out Kirsten was writing another book my interest was immediately piqued. When I found out more about Sister Assassin and how it was darker than the Paranormalcy series I wanted to read it even more.
Around the blogosphere I have seen reviewers praising Sister Assassin and reviewers not too impressed with it. With both sides firmly in mind I went forward to read Sister Assassin, with mixed thoughts.
I wanted Sister Assassin to be great, for me to love it just as much as Paranormalcy and while Sister Assassin started out with a bang, it started to slowly fizzle out, leaving me confused, not only over which sister was which, but also the ever changing time line. While I do think the timeline fits the concept behind the story, it just didn't work for me.
Overall the idea behind the story was a great idea, but the way it was put into the book just didn't work for me. I had trouble connecting with the characters which meant I wasn't invested in their outcome and was easily distracted.
Overall Sister Assassin was an OK read but I don't think it will be one I will read again.
