Blog Tour & Eliza's Review: Between Shadows by Chanel Cleeton

Between Shadows by Chanel Cleeton
An Assassins Novel


A sexy new thriller about love and revenge from the author of the Capital Confessions and International School series… 

X lives by three rules: Show no weakness. Trust no one. Don’t get caught. She lives by the rules they gave her. 

The Academy—set in London, shrouded in secrecy—it trains spies, computer experts, and assassins. Their mission? Dispensing justice and altering the course of world politics. Or so they think. In a world where secrets are weapons and some kills are impossible to forget, everything X thought she knew about her life is about to change. 

They taught her to fight. To blend into the shadows like a ghost, to operate on the fringes of society, to change her identity with ease. They taught her to kill. 

She’ll need every skill they taught her, to stay alive.

Chanel Cleeton brought me one of my favourite series of 2015 with the Capital Confessions. This in turn with her much anticipated Wild Aces series has firmly cemented her as one of my go-to authors.

As a reader who never tends to stray too far from her contemporary romance roots, I easily found myself submerged in this thrilling story of love, betrayal & revenge. American born X is far from your average Nineteen year old, for the last 8 years she has (with her sister Grace) been raised in London by The Academy. What may on the outside appear to be a boarding school, is instead a front for a prestigious training ground for computer specialists, spies and in X's case, assassins.

We arrive as children, are turned into assets, and released into the world to carry out the Academy’s missions.

Show no weakness. Trust no one. Don't get caught.

Life before The Academy is murky at best, X is plagued with memories that are painful & confusing. Life in The Academy can be hard, friendships and alliances are not only not encouraged but considered weakness. A harsh lesson X herself has had to learn.

A new mission revives feelings X felt she had long buried and calls into question everything she thought she knew about The Academy. Learning to trust and love were weakness that are now integral to her survival.

From previous experiences with the author, Between Shadows takes us in a new creative direction. It's a healthy dose of romance and thriller without explicitly being either. It's enough to cater to both audiences whilst having added drama to hold it's intrigue. It has all the finesse and style I've come to very much relish in Chanel's writing, all the while showcasing her versatility as an author.

Originally a Florida girl, CHANEL CLEETON moved to London where she received a bachelor’s degree from Richmond, The American International University in London and a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science. Chanel fell in love with London and planned to stay there forever, until fate intervened on a Caribbean cruise and a fighter pilot with smooth dance moves swept her off her feet. Now, a happily ever after later, Chanel is living her next adventure. 

Law school made Chanel realize she’d rather spend her days writing sexy stories than in a courtroom, and she hasn’t looked back since. An avid reader and hopeless romantic, she’s happiest curled up with a book. She has a weakness for handbags, her three pups, and her husband. 

Chanel writes contemporary romances, women’s fiction, and thrillers. She is published by Harlequin HQN, Penguin/InterMix, and Penguin/Berkley and is the author of the International School, Capital Confessions, and Wild Aces series.
