Publisher's Summary

A smash debut novel from rising star Yasmin Angoe, Her Name Is Knight features an elite assassin heroine on a mission to topple a human trafficking ring and avenge her family.

Stolen from her Ghanaian village as a child, Nena Knight has plenty of motives to kill. Now an elite assassin for a powerful business syndicate called the Tribe, she gets plenty of chances. 

But while on assignment in Miami, Nena ends up saving a life, not taking one. She emerges from the experience a changed woman, finally hopeful for a life beyond rage and revenge. Tasked with killing a man she’s come to respect, Nena struggles to reconcile her loyalty to the Tribe with her new purpose.

Meanwhile, she learns a new Tribe council member is the same man who razed her village, murdered her family, and sold her into captivity. Nena can’t resist the temptation of vengeance - and she doesn’t want to. Before she can reclaim her life, she must leverage everything she was and everything she is to take him down and end the cycle of bloodshed for good.

Great protagonist!

I love how strong the main character is, and how well her struggles are laid bare. My only complaint was with the narrator - she reads v.e.r.y distinctly, which means it's pretty slow. But she's very understandable, and her different voices are distinct.

different, in a good way!

way out of my usual genres buy I am super glad I listened to it. it's a good story, give a more realistic picture of the trauma of and after human trafficking. I like that my girl was an assassin after everything she went through. it seems fitting. the narration was good too. 👍

excellent

this was an excellent read from a first time writer. The narrator did was amazing. Not only giving different voice to all players but adjusting their accents to fit the point in the story. Very much looking forward to the next release.

STUNNING

Angoe’s writing is lyrical and beautiful - very thoughtful content warnings to extremely triggering topics and scenarios within the book. The journey that she takes readers on through a series of flashbacks and present day occurrences has a balanced ebb and flow, the result of which is strong character development.

Katon-Donegal’s performance throughout is strong and breathtaking. She shines in the emotional moments, giving the weighty scenes the depth they deserve.

Highly recommend - bravo.

Hooked from the very start!

I truly enjoyed this book. It was slow getting through some of the opening credits, etc. However, some of the explanations were helpful in understanding how the book was presented (jumping between past and present). Once I got beyond that initial explanation and into the story it was great! Actually, when I got to the end I went back to the beginning to listen to some of the opening chapters (covering “the past”).

Amazing Story and Performance

This is an amazing take on an assassin’s origin story. So glad I picked this up. The recording was well done by this artist.

Can’t wait for the next installment.

Must listen

I am not big on writing reviews but this book was really good. The subject matter is dark and tough to listen to at times but the writing was exceptional. The narration was well done throughout the story. I am hoping this turns into a series and the ideas and characters presented were so good.
