LEANN'S REVIEW: Anna Brookes in Training (Margaret McHeyzer) Hit #1.5

Title: Anna Brookes in Training

Author: Margaret McHeyzer

Series: Hit

Format: ARC

Source: Literati author services


****Recommended for readers 18+****

Imagine watching your Father die in front of you because two men were sent to take you. The two men were sent by Roman Murphy, the boss of Hunter Inc. The sole job of Hunter Inc is to train and produce assassins.

Anna Brookes, a 15 year old girl with a love and panache for precision and handling of weapons was sort out by Hunter Inc.

One evening she encounters Lukas, a man she saves but a man who ultimately goes on to save her.

The months that follow see Anna's intuition heightened and defined.

She is forced to deal with techniques that no ordinary 15 year old girl should ever encounter in their lives.

Anna Brookes - In Training picks up from the moment she killed Damon and Nox in HiT 149.

“I’ll agree that you, Anna, are not ordinary at all. You are simply… extraordinary” ~ Lukas

This is a great short! It lets you into Anna's background and I loved it. I really wanted to know how Anna became who she was after her fathers death. I was so caught up in the last story with all its action and mystery I didn't wonder much...

After diving into this short story I was very happy. Most shorts I find lacking in someway. They are just too short for me. This short was perfect for what it was. It answered any lingering questions you had about her past and filled in those questions you didn't know you had.

A great plot. It literally picks up exactly where her past ended in the first novel. You feel her loss but you find yourself wanting to fight right along beside her. Although I was a little surprised on the ending. I really do love when an author can surprise me.
