So good I m happy for a new series by Nicole Castle and that it takes place in the same world as The Chance Assassin books I fell in love with Miko and had to finish this book in one day I can t wait for the next book to see what happens next. 3,5 stars First things first This book is part of the Chance Assassin universe, but it can be read as standalone But, if you read it before Les Recidivists, than this may spoil the ending for you to a degree, since plot of both books overlap at the end Our merry band of assassins just got bigger This book follows Miko, one of Silva s assassins group of elite contract killers Due to tragic accident in his childhood that cost himthan his fingers, Miko developed several quirks he co 3,5 stars First things first This book is part of the Chance Assassin universe, but it can be read as standalone But, if you read it before Les Recidivists, than this may spoil the ending for you to a degree, since plot of both books overlap at the end Our merry band of assassins just got bigger This book follows Miko, one of Silva s assassins group of elite contract killers Due to tragic accident in his childhood that cost himthan his fingers, Miko developed several quirks he constantly chews cinnamon candies, he has to make special sleeping arrangements and he is squeamish He also has a reputation of a terrible bloodthirsty killer that s not really true, because he really didn t plan to kill his marks the way he did it happened After one of his assignments, he goes out and picks up a guy That s how he meets Toby with whom he eventually starts a relationship.Now, I know this is not a new, never heard before plot Hmm, Warrior s Cross comes to mind, for example and Miko and Toby face all the same issues these couples have, the biggest being lying about his true vocation.But what makes this book standing out is the weirdness, quirkiness of main character.who doesn t get miraculously cured with the love of fine man This is what I like about Nicole Castle she takes a character, she fucks him up beyond recognition and then she makes him fall in love with another man who doesn t really try to fix him he kind of works around these character glitches, doesn t try to point the moral of things and in some occasion even hone them Vincent, we are looking at you It also happens here For example, view spoiler Miko didn t let Toby see his fingers for entirety of book He s embarrassed and he doesn t want to He probably planned to keep it hidden for the rest of his life Now, in works of fiction we would get a scene where romantic interest kissed scars to show he she doesn t care about it, but Castle doesn t work that way Miko is fucked up about it and Toby doesn t push it hide spoiler We also get several chapters of Miko s past and people who trained him and these were my favorite, especially scenes with Nasir.As much as I liked Miko I didn t have any opinion on Toby I don t feel like we really get to know much about him Maybe it was because Miko was so peculiar, so he steals every scene, but I needed some balance thrown in I also didn t expect it to end with a cliffie, so I was sorry when I reached end Fans of Chance Assassin series know that Castle changed her style with second book kind of like zooming out her lens, so focus can be shifted to include bunch of other characters beside Frank and Vincent.And it wasn t just that Stylistically, tone wise and narrative wise book 1 and book 2 couldn t bedifferent.The Consequences of High Caliber Again, a whole new beast.This is not warped and twisted like CH nor satirical like LR This book is actually following the usual mm romance formula we have a Meet Cute A Big Mis And a HEA Or HFN since it ends on a cliffie and sequel is expected Thus, it s what makes it predictable in few places I also wasn t really sold on Miko s bff plot and her lack of options, but I ended up going with it because of where it took us it opened an interesting plot to be handled in second book I know, I am a terrible person tl dr It s a short, fast paced read you can gobble in few hours I loved Miko Full Stop This story was dark and violent Miko is a totally messed up dude, but his romance with Toby was so sweet.it was a contrast that had me riveted Toby s need to believe in Miko was vital to him and to Miko as well It got him through I am looking forward to diving into book 2 This book easily made my best of the year list. This would have been an easy 5 stars but I hated the ending I just hope the next book comes out soon and that Miko and Toby get what they deserve view spoiler A fucking HAPPY ENDING hide spoiler This

we are She s somehow made me love another assassinthan Frank gasp I know, I m shocked too From the moment that she sent me the first few chapters of this book, I found myself staring at my screen and drooling, prodding her forinformation Threats were made I shall come up with a new cringe worthy pun every hour and text it to you until my demands are met For anyone who doesn t know me, that s a legit threat If you cannot enjoy a book about an assassin, this is no And here we are She s somehow made me love another assassinthan Frank gasp I know, I m shocked too From the moment that she sent

who kills for a noble reason, or needs the money I mean someone who kills because that is just what he is meant to do His calling is ending lives, if that is a problem, then do not read this book Miko is a difficult character to describe At first you almost think he s a little slow in the head, but then once you start getting to know him it becomes abundantly clear that he s very smart and rather witty He s just a good 30 degrees off center, and never in the way you d expect This book is the best kind of quick read that you can get, where it keeps you interested and curious until the very end, and a bit afterwards but we ll get to that in a minute The character of Miko is enough to make the book worthwhile, but Ophelia, Toby, and Nasir who for some reason I have started to love unconditionally bring so much flavor to the story that it is impossible to put down view spoiler All of Nicole Castle s other books end on a happy ish note This is not one of them Instead, this book made me start texting her horrible puns every hour to let her know that my demands for book 2 are incredibly serious and not to be taken lightly hide spoiler All in all, Miko will take you for a hell of a ride, and when you get to the end I m sure you ll be right there with me, offering everything from bribes to threats until Miko 2 is released It s no secret that Nicole Castle and I are friends, at least not to anyone who reads either of our blogs Friend or not, this story was fantastic It would make me a fan of hers even if I hadn t read the Chance Assassin books If it s your sort of genre, give it a try That was so beautiful The characters, the story, the writing style everything Just perfect. 4 StarsI keep saying this but, Holy Cow What a book Also, as I ve mentioned in other reviews, I m not a fan of jumping all over the time line but it totally works for this story In fact, I can t see it working any other way than by unfolding the plot through time shifts and flashbacks A linear progression would have bored me to tears, I think Although, it DID take forever to finally get to the childhood scene that explains the title, damn it.Loved Mikohe was so oddly literal sometimes 4

crazy, too but now I ll end up thinking of him every time That s kind of brilliant Just like going into a Savers makes me think of the Psycop books no it s not the same store SaverPlus but the name is close enough to evoke the memory Plus, the need for constriction, for pressure against his body or folding himself into tight spaces , to feel comfortable That s why moms dads swaddle infants it s a security measure I absolutely adored that the sometimes accidentally ruthless bloody assassin needed it, still It s almost like he reverted to using infantile coping measures and was psychologically arrested at a time when parents should have protected him his sister.Very engaging and I will definitely be adding the others to the TBR pile well, I think they re already there I d like to see if my hunch is right about that Lewis Bella hit feeling offand if nothing else, I need to know if Miko was right about what happened to Ophelia I think he was I don t think it was her parents if it was then they are exactly the kind of people that need a killing but maybe somehow tied into Silvo s entire operation and targeting those close to the stable of assassins I love everything about this book
