Sometimes I get lucky and get two 5-star books in a row. This is one of those times. Cameo the Assassin sets the backdrop and begins weaving a story. In Cameo and the Highwayman, Ms. McCullough-White masterfully executes a follow-up that expands exponentially on the first. It's twisted, it's dark, it's witty and it's written to keep you reading. The plot is engaging and fast-paced, making it incredibly difficult to put down. Most of all, it is FUN. I finished this book in just over 24 hours.

I recently finished reading the first book in the Cameo series, Cameo and the Assassin, and had to immediately jump into the next book in the series, Cameo and the Highwayman, wanting to know what was going to happen next. The second books picks up where the first left off and continues to move at the same great action packed pace. Opal, the highwayman, is drawn to Cameo and almost instantly falls for her and yearns for her affection in return. Cameo slowly comes around to the idea, wanting to h ...more

Cameo, the Assassin was a great first book for the series. We met the main characters and where Cameo came from. Cameo and the Highwayman picks up where the first book left off. Cameo, Opal and Kyrian are journeying to Shandow to fulfill a mission given to Cameo by her vampire master, Haffef.

But not long after they arrive in Shandow, Cameo runs into Edel, another vampire who shares her Master. He convinces her to stay with him and he keeps her locked up in his home. Cameo uses her isolation to t

My Rating: 3.75/5 stars!

I really enjoy seeing the growth authors go through with their writing styles and story development. I had a few personal issues with the first book, Cameo the Assassin, and I’m very happy with the turnout of Cameo and the Highwayman. Even though it’s the second book in the series, Cameo and the Highwayman can be read without having previous knowledge of the story. It does pick up days after the first book ends though.

Cameo is on the hunt for something for her Master and

Rating: 4.8 out of 5

I love it when a writer gets it. When you read an early piece, enjoy it greatly, yet think they could do better. Then you pick up their next book, and it improves on the first tenfold. Most things you would’ve changed have been altered. The emotion runs higher than ever. It’s exhilarating.

It is also how I felt reading Cameo and the Highwayman by Dawn McCullough-White.

The story picks up where Cameo the Assassin leaves off, with Cameo (the undead assassin), Black Opal (the gun

Cameo and the Highwayman picks up immediately following the events of Cameo the Assassin. And I wish I could say that things are looking up for our heroine, but the hits just keep on coming for poor Cameo. Now, she is on a mission to recapture her sister's remains for her vampire master, Haffef. Opal and Kyrian are at her side. But just one day after they arrive on the distant shores near the royal palace, Cameo encounters Edel, a vampire who also calls Haffef his master.

Edel thinks that he has

Cameo and the Highwayman is the second book in this series about an otherworldly assassin and her flamboyant thieving friend. I enjoyed book 1, although it took me a bit to become acclimated with the setting and understand the characters. Book 2 picks up right where book one left off. Cameo, Black Opal and Kyrian are on a boat to Shandow to collect the bones Cameo’s master wants so badly. Upon arriving

I love this series! I think I liked this book even more than the first one! I am a history nerd so I was so excited when the french revolution was worked into this book. And Surprised! I did not see it coming- great twist! This book had just as much going on as the first one. But while the first one was non-stop moving and action; this book took some more time to develop the characters and their own stories more. I loved both approaches. The first book grabs your attention and this one is really ...more
