Publisher's Summary

Assassins don’t retire; they reincarnate.

For nearly all of my life, I trained to become a master assassin, but at the height of my career, it all fell apart. I was betrayed, ambushed, and left bleeding out on the streets of London. Just before my death, though, I was offered a choice: Stay and let my life come to a swift and brutal end, or become the personal assassin of a god in another world. It wasn't a hard decision.

But this new world isn’t like the one I left. It operates by a completely different set of rules and a strange system that I don’t understand. I’m going to have to learn fast if I hope to survive in this land of myth and magic. All of my skills, and several new ones, will be put to the test as I receive my first contract. And new world or not, they have no idea who they’re up against.

Isekai Assassin is a fast-paced story set in a Gamelit dark-fantasy world, written by the best-selling author of the Wyvern Academy series.

So freaking good

This book was absurdly good! Excellent character development and exciting combat scenes. Just enough stats to keep you updated without bogging down the story. I love where this is going and I cannot wait for more!

It was OK but!

The story is called Isekai assassin it but it sure doesn’t feel like Isekai to me. The display of exceptional skills versus the listing of extremely low skills and levels just felt counter detective to. There’s something missing in the story some element that just makes it an ordinary story and not truly Isekai.

in my opinion great performance by the narrator

the narrator did a really good job at the training competition assassin. but with the way I feel like it was written. it doesn't give her time to explore more of his emotional View.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

I've been searching forever for an Assassin book. Even better that it's a LitRPG. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the world building. I would say that it's my favorite LitRPG novel thus far, but then again. I am bias because I do love me assassin archetype in my fantasy. I can't wait for the rest of the series!

A unexpected gem

I bought this book on a gamble and I think I won the lottery. A rich engaging story that once I started I had to limit how much I listened to else I would have finished it in one sitting. told from the assassins point of view as he adapts to a new world, And navigates the underworld. Wisniewski narration is on another level and really brings the world alive.

Why are you still reading this review and not listening to the story

Really enjoyable Listen

Loved the idea of the top Assassin from Earth traveling to another world where it show's a his progression through the increase in stats. The world building and characters were also excellent and the narrator did a great job though a couple of characters were a bit jarring based on their description.

Would recommend this audiobook to anyone one envoy's light novels, can't wait for the next one!
