Book Review ~ I Am the Weapon (The Unknown Assassin Book One) by Allen Zadoff

I Am the Weapon - Allen Zadoff

A teenage assassin who is highly trained by “The Program” to enter  a target’s life, befriend them, kill them and then silently leave it all behind to start the next mission which is dictated by his “Father” and “Mother”.  Yep, this is Boy Nobody’s life and from the very first page of I Am the Weapon, the reader tags along on this wild and crazy ride full of twists and turns you never see coming.


I Am the Weapon is not a book I would normally gravitate to and I really didn’t know what to expect when I started it.  But HOLY CRAP!  I was beyond pleasantly surprised on how good it was.   No, I take that back – it was beyond good….it was amazing! 


If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be INTENSE!  The heart-pounding action was non-stop and so gripping, the reader can’t help but be compelled to read the entire book in one sitting – this reader did!  This one is epic people and definitely one to add to the top of your reading list if you love a thrilling, suspenseful, action-packed story with a main character you can’t help but love and want to know more about.


Special thanks to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and NetGalley for providing me a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review.
