The World of Kinsmen

Family is everything. Talent is power.  And revenge is sweet.

In a distant, future world Kinsmen—small powerful groups of genetically and technologically advanced families—control vast financial empires.  They are their own country, their own rulers, and their only limits are other Kinsmen. The struggle for power is a bloody, full-contact sport:  in business, on the battlefield...and sometimes in the bedroom.  

Old hatreds die hard. Old love dies harder.

On the planet Rada, Meli Galdes’ family is of minor rank, and were relying on her marriage to Celino, the razor-smart, ruthless leader of the powerful Carvanna empire.  When he abruptly breaks their engagement, he ruins her family and guarantees that Meli will never marry, as no suitor will oppose the rich and influential Carvannas. 

But Meli has a rare, secret, lethal—and valuable—talent. As a melder of energy, she’s capable of severing anything in her path. So she ‘leaves’ her family and trains to become one of the best and most lethal of assassins, all the while covertly guarding her family’s interests. Now she’s ready to quit; but she has one more assignment.

To kill the man who ruined her life.

Overall rating : 4.1

A novella, this tale still managed to sneak up on me. Arranged matches have always seemed to be very controversial. When extremely lethal elements are added into the mix, a reader may find themselves not sure if you are rooting for murder or a HEA conclusion. This author has woven quite an intriguing tale that I am still not sure which conclusion I really wanted. Pick up this book to place your vote! All my reviews are always voluntarily written.
