Book Review: Seeds of Iniquity

Title Seeds of Iniquity
Series In the Company of Killers, book 4
Author J. A. Redmerski
Release Date September 29, 2014

Victor Faust’s new Order is growing. Business is good as there is no rest for the wicked in an underground world of hardcore criminals and contract killing. Relationships among the operatives have changed little over the past year—but things are about to change now, and all six high-ranking members of the new Order will be blindsided by an unlikely enemy.

Loved ones whose only ties to Victor’s organization are their relationships with its members, are abducted. The price to get them back safely—the six must confess their deepest, darkest secret to this mysterious young woman named Nora, who is as deadly as she is beautiful, and who seems to know more about each of them than they know about each other. And although no one has any clue about who Nora really is, it becomes clear that she also isn’t who she appears to be.

So much more is at stake than secrets and the lives of innocent loved ones; with each member that Nora forces to confess, the truth about their dark pasts and their present objectives will cast suspicion, pit some against each other, and may tear others apart.

Before the game is over everyone will know who this woman is and why she is here, but the damage she will leave in her wake could be the beginning of the new Order’s destruction.

Whose dark secret will be the darkest of all? And can Victor’s Order survive any of them?

Reviews for previous books: Killing Sarai, Reviving Izabel, and The Swan and the Jackal

I'm so disappointed in myself. It's been over two and a half years since I read The Swan and the Jackal. How did I let so much time pass between that book and this one? I've really enjoyed this series and I can't believe I waited so long to read Seeds of Iniquity. I'm definitely not letting that much time pass before I read The Black Wolf. Moving along...

After reading the last couple of chapters of The Swan and the Jackal again for a bit of a refresher, I dove right into book number four. Instantly I was back into the story as if no time at all had passed since the last book. I love that I was so easily sucked back into the story.

Thanks to the author's skillful writing, it's so easy to imagine the book playing out like a movie in my head. The story is so vivid and detailed. I was certainly reminded of my love for this series.

These characters come to life on each and every page. Nora is an interesting new character. I'm excited to see more of her in the future. Oh and that ending with Fredrik! I am definitely intrigued. Of course, he's one of my favorites, so I'm very curious to see how that story will turn out. I will admit, after this book, Niklas has piqued my interest. I think I want more of him, please.

I'm so glad I picked this book up when I did. I definitely needed something to get me out of my reading slump and this was it.


5 out of 5 stars
