Q&A with bestselling author Russell Blake

Q: How is Blood of the Assassin different than the other Assassin books?

RB: I wrote it so that it could be read by a someone who is new to my work, and unfamiliar with the prior books. In much the same way Da Vinci Code was the second in that series but was a satisfying read on its own, I wanted to try the same thing with Blood - a sequel that someone could start with knowing little or nothing about its predecessors. Having said that, it's also consistent with the prior Assassin novels, so those who have read the series will find that it fits snugly in place.

Q: So would you suggest new readers start here?

RB: Sure. That's the whole idea. I think that this book is a perfect example of my storytelling, pacing, character development, and plotting, and I'm confident that new readers will find it engaging and satisfying.

Q: This volume features a lot more of Captain Cruz than the last ones.

RB: Yes, I wanted him to have a central role, and explore his character more. Just as I wanted to flesh out El Rey in greater detail, and create a more nuanced story. It's also by far the longest of the Assassin books, even after rigorous and ruthless editing.

Q: So El Rey, the Mexican super-assassin, also features prominently.

RB: For the same reason. I wanted to let him grow - give him a broader range. I'm particularly satisfied with how this effort turned out. El Rey fans will find everything they've grown to love or hate about him here, but with an evolving perspective on life. And I thought it would be fascinating to have one super-assassin hunting another. I think it wound up working well. But readers will be the ultimate judges...

    5.0 out of 5 stars Assassin series 14 April 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Having read the previous Assassin book I was hooked and am currently reading "Blood of the Assassin". The books are well written, sometimes a little predictable but plenty of action and good structure. I think the E book was about £3.00 or so, a bargain really. To those who don't have a Kindle, get one and enjoy good cheeap books like this.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent attention to detail 26 Jun. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Following the books from the beginning of the series keeps me wanting another. The authors attention to detail following his previous books is excellent, referring back over the other parts of the on going story works for me. His knowledge of the cartels and how they work is great and how the politian's interfere is very credible.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant 12 April 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    El Rey may be a little bit of an animal when it comes to getting information from criminals but certainly in this story he became one of the good guys. Can't wait to see what happens when he gets his final injection. Will he be finally released back into society???
    Have now read the Jet series (to date) and the Assassin series (to date) I must read some more but can't stop reading Russell Blake books.
