Invincible Assassin: IA 2.5 is another thrilling supernatural adventure from the pen of John Darryl Winston. Slotting in between the events of IA B.O.S.S. and IA Union, I’d strongly recommend that you read this entire young adult series to follow Naz’s journey as he uncovers his paranormal gifts. In this installment, Winston focuses in on Harvis, our other young protagonist, in the wake of the death of a pivotal character from book two. Naz is determined to seek vengeance, but it’s Harvis’s time to shine as he attempts to gain intel and protect his friend. But Harvis takes on much more than he expects, as dark secrets from his own family are exposed and danger lurks around every corner.
It’s been a long while since I delved into the IA world with John Darryl Winston, but I was thrilled to be back from page one. Though the story line is as complex and exciting as ever, Winston paints a world with such clarity that I walked back in with ease, and was at once enraptured. Naz’s character development intrigued me particularly in this volume as he experiences deep grief and frustration, and it was delightful to watch Harvis grow in both intellect and ability. Young readers will be wowed by yet more twists and excitement in Invincible Assassin, but I think the characters’ friendship and their personal journeys also offer a meaningful and moving investment for any reader. Once again, Winston hits the mark with skill.
