Publisher's Summary

A noble. An assassin. A girl with a past.... 

Christiana isn't your average Marchioness. Living a double life, she is known in the dark shadows as Midnight Maiden, the vigilante assassin. Using skills she's honed for years, she helps the abused to regain control of their lives. But when the Royal Family summons her to the palace for a summer filled with gossip and eligible bachelors, she must conceal her illicit alter-ego while rebuilding relationships lost. But she is forced to decide between her safety and her integrity when Prince Alekzander, the next King, attempts to hire her to take out a powerful man at court: Chancellor Julian Marlow. With her head, and her heart, on the line, Christiana must decide what type of future she is truly meant to lead.

Midnight maiden

This was a great start to a series! Christiana is a very complex character and she has choices she needs to make and truths to discover. I loved her abilities and her conviction. She was a great assassin and helps those who need it. Now she’s hired by someone from her past to do a very dangerous job at the palace. I can’t wait for more of the world and find out how things will progress throughout the series.

Amazing

I really loved Christiana‘s complexity in this story and how creative the storyline was. It was super exciting, but also had some emotional pieces. The writing style was well done and paced nicely! I can’t wait to get my hands on the second book! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Guardian Assassin to the Abused

I feel the need to start with my content warnings on this one. PG13-R easily +17 read. The summary mentions a semi-graphic assault scenes but it doesn't specify. This has a very high potential for being triggering for some readers - there are several very detailed flashbacks and descriptions of violent beatings and an attempted rape. There are two f-bombs but otherwise the language is fairly clean.

Outside of the warning this is a very well written book with relatable characters and a fantastic plot. I really enjoyed this one a lot! There are stories within the story, action, adventure, love triangles, and as the book progresses you learn so much each of the characters that you really begin getting invested in the story and it becomes more difficult to put down. I can't wait to see where book 2 goes and how the characters continue to develop.

The narrator did a fantastic job and was fun to listen to. I felt it was a bit better at 1.25x speed but I often listen faster.

Exciting story!

I really enjoted this. The narrator was excellent. Her pacing and range of voices for each character was fantastic. The story was fun. Its a bit different but I loved that a female had some power. Historically that didn't happen as much as it should. Its also a romance. Christiana is titled and holds that title without a man. She is sent to the castle for the summer to find a husband. She also leads a seperate life and prefers being single. The romance is a romance but one of the things I really loved about it is the romance doesn't overwhelm the story. All in all its a great read!

Interesting idea that could be better executed

Disclaimer: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. An interesting idea of a character living a double life but unfortunately the characters come across feeling a little shallow and uninteresting. The vocabulary in the book could definitely be improved, as certain words are overused and does not feel like they are used in the correct situation. The conflicts that occurred also feel quite staged and it seemed to have stifled character development of some characters. It was disappointing because the book started out really strong and lost it's shine slowly as the book progresses. Narration by Rachel Leblang was very well done. She portrays all the characters very well and distinctively. It was a joy listening to her narration.

I was pleasantly surprised and impressed

I enjoyed this new series and hope that the author continues with the audio recording of the rest of this series and however, on certain exceptions I do enjoy stories about elements similar to this type of story but normally I'm a bit more paranormal fantasy however this was one of the exceptions . I thought the narrator was great and found it so easy to get into. That being said I was offered a free copy in exchange for my honest and true feedback and I don't leave feedback if I don't enjoy the book. So I definitely recommend trying this audio book if its has peaked your interest. Please keep it coming!!! JUST WONDERFUL!!!!

Narrated wonderfully

Exciting story with a strong kickass female lead.
I was lucky enough to be gifted the audiobook in return for a non-biased review.
Christiana leads a double life. By day she is Marchioness of Targi and by night she is the Midnight Maiden assassin who targets abusive men.
Living in an abusive household her entire life, she knows exactly what its like to live in fear and pain and nobody to turn to.
Her position as the Marchioness has the royal family inviting her to spend a summer at the palace in the hope of setting up a prestigious marriage with one of the nobles. This is the last thing she wants to do but can’t refuse, especially when the maidens next target resides within the palace.
Can she keep both life’s separate? Will someone discover her secret? You need to read to find out.
Christina is a great character, smart, strong and caring. However, she also doubts herself at every turn. Listening to her inner voice is a nightmare and you may get a little annoyed with her especially when it comes to choosing between 2 men who she cares for and who also happen to be best friends.
A tale full of political intrigue and revenge against abusive males that think they can get away with anything due to their wealth, power and position. It’s a slow build fantasy romance with lots of suspense.
I highly recommend the audio version narrated wonderfully by Rachel Leblang.
4 out of 5 stars and looking forward to the next book in this duology.
