Urban Fantasy review: Evil’s Unlikely Assassin

Audiobook review of Evil’s Unlikely Assassin (Alexis Black book 1)

Written by Jenn Windrow
Audiobook narrated by Chelsea Stephens


This audiobook had everything I’d hope for in an Urban Fantasy, while being fresh and awesome and utterly entertaining!

If you’re a regular reader, you know I’m not much of a vampire kinda girl. I guess it’s because there was a bit of an overkill of sparkly vampires in the past. So, a vampire will really need to bring something new to get me excited…

Turns out, Alexis Black is my new favorite vampire. (My last favorite vampire was Spike, and that’s been… a couple years). She’s the bad-ass heroine you’d expect in an Urban Fantasy. But she also wants to be a human again so badly, that it offsets her immense powers. She’s an interesting, complex, real character. And I pretty quickly found myself very invested in her story.

The story is fast-paced while the world-building is thorough and the players in it are set up well. I was drawn in from the first page. Also, there’s some very hot sex, yay!

Chelsea Stephens did a perfect narration with some very fun accents. She filled the characters with life and I really just couldn’t stop listening.

I’m absolutely hooked on this series and would recommend it to absolutely anyone! It’s not only a must-read for Urban Fantasy fans but also a great pick to try out the genre.

And because of all this I shall now go and read the ebook for part 2!

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.
