Synopsis (Goodreads):
A snow leopard shifter exiled from his pride twenty years ago, Harbin treads the dark path of life as an assassin, driven by a hunger for vengeance, mercilessly hunting the Archangel members who attacked his kin, murdering his mother and sister.

When a new contract comes in and the mark is a snow leopard shifter, he can’t resist venturing into the mortal world on a personal mission to find out why one from a normally peaceful species now has a price on their head. What he finds in a rundown nightclub isn’t quite what he expects—a beautiful snow leopard female that awakens a fierce hunger inside him.

Aya has spent seventeen years living in London, immersed in the underbelly of the fae world, keeping her head down and her tail out of trouble. But when trouble walks right into her life in the form of a sinfully handsome, dangerous assassin, she is pulled into a whirlwind of events that stir up the nightmares of her past but might just give her a shot at putting those ghosts to rest—if she can resist the dark allure of a male she knows is her fated mate.

Can Harbin and Aya resist the passionate fire that blazes between them as they chase the vengeance they both crave? Or will they surrender to their deepest desires?
Thoughts on Marked by an Assassin: This book is a little more complicated than some of the previous books. We're seeing some serious overlap on the intertwined storylines now (Kyter, Cavanaugh, and Loke's books to name a few) and keeping straight what's happened in those books keeps you on your toes.

That said, I always love revisiting old favorites so the events that bring all these characters together make me smile.

On top of the overlapping timelines, Harbin and Aya have a pretty fundamental misunderstanding at one point that muddies the waters even more. (and I'm going to be purposefully vague here so as not to give anything away.) Let's just say Harbin believes one thing that's VERY untrue while Aya is dealing with some misconceptions about Harbin that aren't exactly on the up and up.

Lies, perceived betrayal, pain, and heartache lead to some very tangled emotions. Especially when you throw in some smokin' sexual tension and the mating hunger the shifters go through when they meet their one and only.

Dark and sexy, I'm loving this series. And might I just say, I REALLY hope Fuery finds a way out of his dark place. Poor guy.
