It's been over three years since I began this series, and over two years since I read 'The Swan & The Jackal'. Yet, this series continues to captivate me. Each book feels unique, but leaves me feeling even more intrigued with this misfit group of killers. I can't get enough of them.

This time around, Victor, Izabel and their assassin's order are faced with a mysterious new enemy. She can't be broken and they may have finally met their match. Nora is a trained operative...and she's determined

Normally I don’t pull this line BUT if you haven’t read at least one book in this series, dear lord you are missing out on some of the best romantic suspense (with dark elements) books out there! Seeds of Iniquity marks the second book in the series that has gotten a 6 star rating from me.

Wow, this sure is not a romance and love series. It’s about unforgettable characters, violence, killing, torture and a shadowy world that I know nothing about.

Once again, the author amazes me with her beautiful writing and the way she brings these characters to life and gets you on their side is simply astonishing.

The 4th book in the In the Company of Killers and is one of the darkest so far.

I love this series! It's suspenseful, thrilling and fast-paced. Victor and his order are faced with a new enemy. Nora, a beautiful, but deadly blonde seems to have dirt on each of them and plans to force them to confess their secrets to each other.

"Each of you has a deep, dark secret," she begins, "something you may be ashamed of, or regret, or may be haunted by because it was so awful this thing you did that your conscience can't escape it."

This series is so thrilling and once again J.A. Redmerksi delivers an edge of your seat read that has all the members of Victor’s Order confessing their secrets to a gorgeous ruthless blonde who has a few of their loved ones kidnapped.

This gorgeous blonde is a killer born and bred and she has every member of this Order confessing while showing small breaks in their group and exposing a waterfall of emotions in her wake.

Second review thoughts: I mean, I love these characters. I'm sticking with my 5 star rating. I am completely amazed at the pacing and how Jessica builds tension in this installment. It reads like one of those season finales of a tv show. Damn. Just, everything in this book. I first fell in love with Nora the first time I read this and she's still my

Okay, first off, I was scared by the reviews. I love J.A. Redmerski, she’s the type of author I will read ANTYHING by so when I read the mixed reviews. I was apprehensive at first. I just didn’t want to be disappointment.


This was a fantastic read and if you need something to slap you on the head and make you go crazy with good angst then SEEDS of INIQUITY is for you.

4 What the Freaking Hell Nora Stars

"Each of you has a deep, dark secret."


Victor Faust is trying to establish his new Order.
The only thing that can shake this new foundation is its members. Willingly? No, never.
But when loved ones are kidnapped and the price that the mysterious Nora demands, is for each of them to admit his darkest secret, they might not have a choice. Loyalties will be tested, lives will be threatened and nothing will be ever the same.

And most of all, what is Nora's secret?

Secrets are coming out all over the place in this book. Some I was totally shocked and others I had a gut feeling about. I couldn't help but love Nora. Her and her game of truth was very clever!
I couldn't help but be pissed off at Dorian either! Ugh!!! WTF Dorian?!?!
I was a little disappointed that most of the book is told in Izabel's POV. I wanted more of this groups POV. I want more of this series now!!
Of course she leaves us with Fredrik's POV at the end. I wish I wouldn't of read i

Ah ne kadar sırlarla dolu kitaptı öyle!
Katiller Çetesi gün geçtikçe büyürken tehlikelerinde etrafında dans etmesi kaçınılmaz bir şeydi zaten. Bu sefer tehlikenin kaynağı çılgın kadın Nora Kessler.

Bir kere hatuna bayıldım. Her hareketi her lafı o kadar planlı ve özgüven dolu ki yaptıklarından dolayı ona kızmak içimden gelmedi. Hele hele onun sayesinde öğrendiklerimiz ve en sonunda istediği şey. Senin pervasızlığını yerim ben ya!

En başta da dediğim gibi sırlarla ve itiraflarla dolu bir kitap oldu.

Although I willingly and excitedly dove into this volume of murder and mayhem, I must admit that I was a little disappointed with the way some characters were portrayed :(

Izabel went from being a badass-in-training to a whiny little bitch. She irritated, annoyed and aggravated me. I ended up wanting to hear from her less than I did. I really just wanted more of anyone else. She was in the company of infamous assassins but kept pulling what amounted to the equivalent of a temper tantrum.

Things have been going well, as far as the organization is concerned. Business as usual. Izabel and the four other men, with one still MIA, are handling jobs with ease.

That is until the group gets word that some loved ones are now missing. The only clue left in the wake of their absence is a note advising them to meet at a specific location, otherwise the captives will be killed. When the team arrives to their destination, they find one lone woman. This woman is

Seeds of Iniquity is book 4 in the Company of Killers series and is, in my humble opinion, the best one so far. It was well plotted out and we have real character development. I think that with each book this series continues to get better.

İyi ki dedim.
