Was this book the wait , too right it was & more . Surviving to find the city of the city of Vikings is the only the first hurdle , Nora , Frederick & Mina are split into their own factions & then there was the fact that not only was Nora's dad alive & well he had another daughter that he'd brought up all her life not abandoned like he did Nora & there was definitely no sign of sibling love , quite the opposite . This book ties up all the loose ends in the first two books but gives us so much more than that .The second part of the book is even more fantastic than the first , the city of Assassins is hidden by time but Nora finds it but loses part of herself , it seems like everyone has an agenda for her or wants a piece of her , the politics behind every single thought & decision is so confusing but at the same time makes sense , loved meeting up with the old favourites & so great new characters , Farah Cook has made a spell binding world that could go on & on , i for one won't be sorry if it did.
An excellent end to a brilliant series. In City of assassins you get to see Nora finish her quest for the assassins weapons that will help her with her destiny. Nora faces memory lose, her assiasssin heritage and those that she considers friends. Once I started reading City of Assassins I couldn't put it down. I fell head first into a world of magic, Vikings and monsters and came out wanting more from Farah Cook.
I have really enjoyed this series and it has gone from strength to strength. Very strong characters and exciting story lines. The interaction between Nora and Frederick is well written and very believable. I've always enjoyed novels that involve Norse mythology. I would definitely recommend this book and the series.
