Bishop Kearney sophomore publishes young adult book

ROCHESTER — Aspiring author, and Bishop Kearney High School sophomore Hannah Olin has published her first book, “Ezio Ferrari: Blood of an Assassin”, as volume one of an anticipated four-part series for young adults.

The story centers around a 14-year-old boy named Ezio Ferrari, the series namesake, and takes readers on an action-packed adventure throughout Italy as he and his friends try to prevent harm from coming to one of Ezio’s uncles. In doing so, Ezio begins to uncover many secrets about his family, and his presumed destiny.

While the title may indicate a darker work, the storyline is anything but dark. The author provides a riveting, yet casual, action-adventure story with colorful character and scene development.

The author does a wonderful job of effortlessly drawing the reader deeper into the story, as it progresses. Showing influences from many best selling young adult fiction authors’ works, the author’s style and prose is far beyond what one may expect from a 15 year old.

The epilogue and preview of book two provides a wonderful ending and setup for the reader’s anticipation of the next book in the series. The second volume does not yet have a release date or title.

Olin has been writing stories since she was seven years old and is an honors student at Bishop Kearney High School in Rochester. In addition to writing and her school work, she also enjoys listening to music, watching college basketball, playing video games, and skateboarding. She is active in the community, providing various service through her lifelong affiliation with St. John of Rochester.

Readers can follow Olin on Twitter for news and information on her upcoming works.

“Ezio Ferrari: Blood of an Assassin” is currently available for purchase online from and as an eBook from the Kindle Store.
