Book Launch Party: It Ends With Knight by Yasmin Angoe with Elise Blackwell

September 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm


Join acclaimed local author Yasmin Angoe and conversation partner Elise Blackwell for the release of It Ends with Knight, hosted by All Good Books. In this thrilling conclusion of the Nena Knight series, the trained assassin will have to confront the ghosts of her past…before she becomes one herself. The event is free and open to the public, and books will be available for sale. A Q&A and book signing will follow the program.


Yasmin Angoe is the award-winning, first-generation Ghanaian American author of the acclaimed thrillers, Her Name Is Knight and They Come At Knight. She received the 2020 Eleanor Taylor Bland Award from Sisters in Crime and, in 2021, an Anthony Award nomination for Best First Novel. Her books were listed as Amazon’s “Best Book of the Month” and Editor’s Picks and were optioned for TV which are currently in development. Reviews of Yasmin’s work can be found in The New York Times,, Deadline, The Guardian, PopSugar, and Woman’s World.

Elise Blackwell is the author of five novels: Hunger, The Unnatural History of Cypress Parish, Grub, An Unfinished Score, and The Lower Quarter. Her work has been translated into several languages, and her books have been named to numerous best-of-the-year lists, adapted for the stage, and served as the inspiration for a Decemberists’ song. Originally from southern Louisiana, Elise teaches in the MFA program at the University of South Carolina and hosts the literary series The Open Book.


“Watch your back, Liam Neeson. This avenger is tough.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Nena Knight can cover Orphan X’s six o’clock any day! Stolen from her village in Ghana, Knight reinvents herself as an elite assassin capable of all orders of badassery. One of thrillerdom’s rising stars, Yasmin Angoe paints Knight with nuance, strength, and grace. These books burn hot and read fast.” —Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times bestselling author of the Orphan X series

“It Ends with Knight finishes this trilogy every bit as heart pounding, soul-searching, and explosive as it started. Nena Knight now takes her place alongside crime fiction’s most unforgettable heroines.” —Rachel Howzell Hall, New York Times bestselling author of We Lie Here and These Toxic Things

“Yasmin Angoe returns with both barrels blazing in It Ends with Knight. Nena Knight is such a well-crafted character, and Angoe’s writing is an absolute joy. You need some pretty strong writer mojo to get readers to root for an assassin, and Angoe pulls it off. I truly hope It Ends with Knight is not the end of this wonderful series.” —Tracy Clark, bestselling author and winner of the Sue Grafton Memorial Award
