(Review) A Questionable Client by Ilona Andrews

Before 'A Questionable Client' came out, we all knew bare minimum of how Kate met Saiman. 
There were a few words about bodyguard detail, a job that Kate seems to abhor. But that was about it.

A Questionable Client sheds more light on Saiman as an individual, and his lack of moral compass.
We get to see Kate and Saiman spend some quality time together. 

Here's a list of things you will find in the book:

Saiman trying to Seduce Kate (What is this the 5th out of gazillion time?) ✔

Degenerate Saiman (As Curran likes to call him) ✔


Frustrated Kate (Kate whenever she deals with Saiman) ✔

A Cruel and Vicious Monster (Meow) ✔

Kate saving the day (Always) ✔

To be honest, you won't be rooting for Saiman in this book. 
He caused a situation, where Kate had to kill innocent men to protect his body.

As the story progressed, I kept hoping Kate would find a way to save the Volhvs as well. Never happened.

So, who were the bad guys here? 

  • Saiman, who chose to play with a man for his own gains. The result was Evegenni committing suicide and Pavel death, who tried to avenge his son.
  • Kate who protected Saiman, because he didn't know better. Kate has a strong sense of right and wrong, but she still protected Saimon when he deserved the Volhvs wrath.
  • Pavel who tried to avenge his son's death.
  • Or was it Evegenni whose mistake was loving Saiman. 

We all know that Volhvs aren't all too innocent, they make human sacrifices. 
But in this instant, weren't their actions justified?
