Book Description

December 2009


Two Kingdoms United by Magic Will Need a Talented Assassin to Survive

The highly trained assassins of Evendell have a single, unyielding mission: defend the monarch of Bacovia—at any cost. It’s the enduring product of an age-old pact, formed when Bacovia came to the smaller kingdom’s aid militarily a long time ago. But neither party has ever faced the danger that now lurks behind every castle corridor. Now, a beautiful young assassin named Aislynn has been assigned to protect the heir apparent, Eryk. Yet Eryk’s independent streak offers stiff resistance to what anyone else has planned for him—especially an untested and unfamiliar sentinel. Faced with banishment, Aislynn must stay true to her mission from afar, at precisely the time when the threat against his life is highest. As Aislynn soon discovers, few things—and people—are as they seem. Whom can she trust as she endeavors to unravel the conspiracy and defeat the terrorists, once and for all? A fast-paced, smart and savvy fantasy thriller, The King’s Assassin will keep you guessing right up until the shocking finale.

The King's Assassin was a really fun, fast read - a good plot that included some interesting twists. I'm not normally a huge fan of fantasy novels, but this one kept me interested and entertained through the whole book. I'll be keeping an eye out for more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murder in a Fantasy Kingdom May 31 2010
By L. B. Lux - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
We are confronted with a murder at the beginning, and it is a King.In this fantasy world, which resembles the middle ages with sword fights, hunting, castles, and intrigue, the difference is cleverly revealed when the reader is introduced to Aislynn. She is a trained assassin, and marks on her arms reveal she comes from a line dedicated to this task. These assassins have a duty to defend the King of Bacovia, as their country, Evendell has a peace treaty. With the new King, Eryk, in danger from also being murdered, Aislynn has her hands full in trying to identify the would-be assassins, as well as coping with his increased fondness for her, as he has a duty to find a wife. This is a fast paced story, well written, but I have reservations about its intended audience, though understand it is aimed at Young Adults. I believe the blossoming romance will put off the lads, and as the epilogue suggests another book, believe the author must indicate her target readers.Some mistakes occur, such as having a church, then depicting candles lit for the 'Gods.' Maybe a 'temple' would be better, and I would have liked to read more detail about the coronation of Eryk, rather than just a sentence. However, this is a very good debut book for the author, and I can recommend it. Brian Lux (award winning 'Court of Foxes')

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantasy Thriller that Rocks! May 24 2010
By Marcia S. Freespirit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Brownlow brings to us a wonderful and fantastic story that revolves around a new King, Eryk and his protector, Aislynn, who also happens to be a highly trained assassin. The King's Assassin pulls you into the world of Brownlow and the lands of Evendell and Bacovia.

As Robert Jordan thrilled readers with his Wheel of Time series, Brownlow has created for us a new world of magic, intrigue, murder and love in The King's Assassin. Every lover of fantasy will greatly enjoy this fast-paced story. The characters have depth and wit, the scenes are well-written and detailed.

Fantasy is favorite genre and I thoroughly enjoyed this tale about an unlikely king, his unwanted protector, the conspiracies that unfold, the loves that blossom or are denied and the kingdoms that are in danger.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh…not terrible, not great Nov. 7 2013
By L. K. Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Warning: Small spoiler alert.

I found this to be a very very quick read with a very very simple world. That's not always a bad thing, and I was happy not to be bogged down with too much history. I didn't have to think at all while I read this book, which is both good and bad. If you want something to pass the time by, this would be a good book for that.

My main problem is that the woman (Aislynn), who was protecting the prince/king (Eryk), seemed to be hurt a lot or was not always by the prince/king's side. For a person sent to protect him, she seemed content to spar with another dude and leave Eryk by himself. I think her link to him did little to ease my concerns. The attacks seemed a little too planned for me, too convenient, and too easily thwarted. Maybe because of the lack of a crazy world and deep history, I was lulled into a content mindlessness and missed more of the deeper details that could explain this. Even as I say it, I'm not sure my mindlessness was a bad thing. I was content while reading. So, if you've just read a crazy complicated book and need a mind break, this would be an enjoyable read, light and quick.

Loved the settings. The story created a wonderful mental movie with great historical and creadible references. The characters were entertaining yet none overshadowed the other. A nice touch which left a want to know more in the incoming sequel.
1.0 out of 5 stars Not Good June 16 2011
By Kenlokeri Floyd - Published on Amazon.com

I am the type of person that typically reads a book from cover to cover; I can only think of 2 books I haven't finished that I started; one is "The Kings Assassin"

In fact, I only finished the prologue. It was that bad.

The writing is clunky and the editing is horrendous. I honestly felt like I was reading something a 9 year old would write. I will probably try to read the first three chapters to see if it improves (and if it does I'll revise my review). But, until then I can't do anything but warn people away from this book.
