BETWEEN SHADOWS is the first book in the new Assassins series

whether I would finish it. It is certainly different from the Capital
Confessions series. But once I got into the story I
had to keep reading. The main characters in this book remind

information which leads to X recovering all her recessed

Chanel Cleeton really surprised me with this book. Once you
get into the story you can't stop. Since BETWEEN SHADOWS is the first
book in the new series, I can't imagine what the next one will
be like. Is it possible to live a normal life when you have
been trained as an assassin? How do you come to terms with
realizing everything you were taught was all based on
