A fun and energetic story told in dual timelines laid out perfectly!
Nena Knight, as she is called today, was stolen as a child from her Ghanaian village and sold to the highest bidder. Her life was a nightmare until she was able to escape. Once she did, she managed to become part of a family that loved and cared for her and took her
into the family business where she became an elite assassin for a powerful group called the Tribe. On her latest assignment, she ends up saving a life instead of ending one which changes everything for her. The life she saved is a man she starts to fall for causing her family and the Tribe problems. The newest member of the Tribe turns out to be the man that destroyed her village and sold her into captivity. She wants vengeance more than anything, but she is also afraid to lose the family she has worked so hard to gain over the last decade.
Her Name is Knight is a really great novel for a debut author. The story is entertaining, fun, and contains characters that I wanted to follow. Nena especially, but her sister got on my nerves at times. The back and forth between past and present can sometimes get confusing but the way Angoe went about writing it really worked for me. The story was great and flowed well, but there was a lot of over-the-top foul language that I just didn’t feel had to be included throughout the whole story. This is recommended for mature audiences.
I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
