ABOUT: Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head!

Not one to depend on others, Twilight has his work cut out for him procuring both a wife and a child for his mission to infiltrate an elite private school. What he doesn’t know is that the wife he’s chosen is an assassin and the child he’s adopted is a telepath!

 

My Review: Oh my goodness, why in the world was I so hesitant to read this?! Spy x Family volume 1 was so much fun and super funny! A spy, an assassin, and a telepath make for great main characters. You really get to know who these characters are and their struggles.

Twilight is a master of disguise and confident in his abilities as a spy. Yet he finds himself hilariously floundering with his current mission of securing a wife and child in order to take down a criminal. I adore his character.

Yor, our deadly assassin, is a kind person who has never quite fit in. She appears to want more from life and to not let her little brother – who she loves – worry too much about her. She’s so wonderful.

Anya is so precious and deserves the world! All she wants is a family. It’s so cute how she tries to help Twilight with his mission so the three of them can remain a family (fake as it is).

I adore all three of them and love how well they fit together. They seem to unknowingly fill the void within each other. My deepest hope of hopes is that they stay a family regardless of what happens next.

I’m so glad I picked up this volume. There was humor, action, blood, sadness, and very wholesome moments between the characters. I’m really looking forward to the next volume. Spy x Family is comedy gold and sure to become my new favorite series.
