Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough White

I was offered to read Cameo the Assassin by Dawn McCullough White by inkspand in exchange for an honest review.
Cameo and Clovis Gail DePell- the assassins and Black Opal and Bellamy- highwaymen are pinned for the murder the prince by the leader of the assassins, Wick. The only problems with that is, Cameo secretly assassinated the prince and Cameo, Black Opal and Bellamy killed Gail in self defense.
Although Opal is somewhat of a drunk dandy, he obviously has feelings for Cameo, even after he realizes she is an assassin and he should probably be wary of her. His main interests seem to be clothing, his mirror, alcohol, adventure and Cameo. Opal has a blind eye but is very adept swordsman. There are many examples of Opal’s handiwork with his sword, many times his sword has met its mark before Opal even realizes.
During the midst of fleeting assassins and bounty hunters set on the bounty offered for the four murderers Cameo is charged with getting fifteen year old Kyrian to safety. Kyrian is excited when he first realizes who his escorts are, not realizing the danger his is in. Now not only does he have to worry about his safety, he has to be worried about people thinking he has something to do with the death of the prince and his association with the assassins.
I was a little confused when the book first began. Cameo is found almost dead, but then is alive and an assassin, but the confusion was quickly cleared and made the story more interesting. I was guessing the outcome until the end. I like a book where I’m not sure what the outcome will be, but cannot put it down until I find the answers. This is a five star book.
