Wow what a book!! Danger, danger if you can't take killing and guts to the highest level it is not for you! Anyone who has been in the military or a special op unit will get the idea. Great story behind all of this if you can make it through it all. Bill Brewer has the guts to tell all and if you think for one minute there are not powerful people in business then you are wrong. I loved it, great book!! Fast paced and does not let up for one second. If you dare, take a peek at what really can go ...more

There are a few things that I enjoyed about this book. First is the overall story. I enjoyed the author's theme and the way that he gets straight to the point about what drives the main character. Second, I love the gore and guts of the fight scenes. You can definitely tell that the author has a background in anatomy and physiology because every fight scene or assassin kill is expertly described, much to my enjoyment.

The issues that I have are with the way the story is told, character developme

This was a rather difficult read for me. All elements are in that would make this a great read - mysterious criminal underground, international assassins and our hero, Diegert, who gets more and more entangled with this shadowy world of international intrigue.

Problem is in the way story is told - entire book reads like a video game script or walk through - we follow our main protagonist as he moves from one event to another and I cannot lose the feeling that I am seeing the choice for further di

Fast paced in some places and then slows to a crawl. Far more bloody and violent then I care for.I wish that I could care for the main character, David Diegert, after all he did become an assassin to help his mother keep her house but I just couldn't find anything redeemable in him. This just wasn't my cup of tea but that doesn't mean others won't like it.

I received this from LibraryThing Early Reviewer for and honest review.

That was a wild ride, just when you get settled into a situation you get hit with a sharp turn. The hits just keep coming one after the other leaving the reader in shock. I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.

Free review copy.

My new favorite book and author!

If you want a book that you won’t want to put down once you start reading it, this would be it! No, seriously. Block off your schedule it takes about 4 hours to read so make sure to have that much or a little more set aside where you have no other obligations because you will not want to put it down and if you have to put it down you are going to want to get back to it as soon as you possibly can! I’m not kidding, the storyline is intense and thrilling. I’m not u

I received this book as part of LibraryThing Early Reviewer program.

I really tried to finish this book but just couldn't. I couldn't for a lot of reasons. Most of the time it felt like a summary of a novel and much of the dialog was clunky. Honestly, it felt like a first draft.

But the main problem I had was with the development of Diegert and his motivation to become an assassin. I understood it on an intellectual level, (his home life, bullying, resentment, etc...) but the author didn't really

I genuinely enjoyed reading Dawn of the Assassin. Although some parts moved a little slow for me, you can't help but get wrapped up in Diegert's life, and cheer him on, even with deadly stakes. From a life of struggles to excelling, Diegert's story is absolutely captivating. If you enjoy thrillers, you'll definitely want to pick up this one! ...more

Not very good at all. Simplistic and unbelievable, even more so than many in this genre.
