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?
