About the Book:
For centuries, the Petrescu family has been protecting society from a danger that moves among the population undetected. Eighteen-year-old Vasi Petrescu has never had a problem carrying out his duty, but, when ordered to eliminate an eighteen-year-old girl, he is immediately taken out of his comfort zone.
The Syndicate has never targeted a female before, yet somehow this one has ended up on more than one hit list. Vasi would like to find out why, but there may not be time.
Now, he'll have to decide whether or not to keep her alive even if it means going against his own family.
The Syndicate is a very unique storyline that will entice a selective audience. Narrated by a eighteen year old young man that happens to be an assassin, for the secret organization known as the The Syndicate, readers will notice a very different dialect, and overall experience. Watching this story unfold from a males point of view may deter some readers, but those that find their selves invested will be rewards with this action packed adventure. Shockingly, this is also a love story which was quite interesting paired with the males point of view. The fast pace will carry readers through effortlessly as this author builds an entire world of danger; only to break it back down with the climax of the novel. Upon concluding the book I have many lingering questions, and hopes to see another novel for this unique and refreshing story. I look forward to more, and anxiously anticipate reading author novels by this talented author.
