Luke Jennings Í 1 READ & DOWNLOAD READ ↠ 3SW.CO Í Luke Jennings CHARACTERS Codename Villanelle Villanelle #1a Alf a world away Oxana’s potential has been noted Recruited as an assassin on behalf of a secretive global power elite she is reborn as the beautiful lethal Villanelle The rewards of her new life are spectacular but the risks are deadly And when she’s tasked with the elimination of a senior Mafia boss it’s clear that the job is goi. 1 Not What I Expected Star I must say I was disappointed that the story was written in third person It took away from the emotional connection to characters and plot twists I couldn t relate to anyone Vilanelle is some cold detached serial killer who has no feelings or emotions And technically neither does the author for making her sound so dullAnother flaw I found in the story are the descriptions Everything and I mean everything to and from the height of the glass to the color of some random lady s sweater is described Why At first I thought it was refreshing how the author painted the scenery for me for the opening scene But very uickly I began getting bored It took away from the storyI did like how Villianelle mirrored other people s body posture movements and facial expressions to better assimilate with her surroundings It was nice seeing the correlation to the TV Series Killing Eve But where the TV series kept me hooked and wanting the book has me looking elsewhere It loses another star because I can t believe how boring it is Even death scenes aren t pulling me in It s a shame I assumed Luke Jennings is an accomplished writer to have a tv show based off of his books but I don t see it There are a few similarities but honestly they feel worlds apart
