The Kingdom of Assassins by Erik Mackenzie

ebook, review, Erik Mackenzie

The Kingdom of Assassins has all of the elements for a great suspense novel: spies, a cop with an attitude and a past, royalty, and diplomats. Erik Mackenzie’s writing encourages readers to suspend disbelief through vivid descriptions of the characters’ five senses as he leads them through a maze of death, lies, and power-hungry men to uncover terrorist plots against the United States.

The picture that Erik Mackenzie paints for his readers is lush and terrifying; his characters are both exotic and real. The details are very well-written; however I found myself distracted by them. I really enjoyed the storyline, but I would have liked the book better if some aspects of the characters and the world around them had been left to my imagination.

If you enjoy authors like John Grisham, Tom Clancy, or James Patterson; you will appreciate this book’s storyline and realism. It is obvious that Erik Mackenzie performed extensive research to write this book, and it really is a shame that I couldn't get past the descriptive details in order to fully appreciate his research and the story.

What it boils down to is that I'm one of those readers that likes to imagine some details when I read, and this book didn't really leave much to my imagination.
