Readers will relish the love story of The Lone Warrior and the lone assassin in the rousing Rossetti realm

Her father was the Baron of Lonefell Keep, but loathed her from the moment she was born because her mother who he loved died birthing her. He ordered the midwife to kill her, but luck and a grieving woman saved her life. Growing up wild and unwanted, Mehcredi raised herself amidst abuse from others. She finally flees her brutal people joining The House of Assassins. Eventually a Necromancer hires her as an assassin.

When she accidentally hurts an innocent person, Walker the demon warrior hunter notices and stalks her. He catches Mehcredi; Walker displays a deep loathing of her as he sees her as being just like those who killed his tribe. Still to his disbelief, as he gets to know Mehcredi who has no concept of relationships he finds her nothing like his image. Attraction blossoms and they fall in love. However, Mehcredi and Walker must destroy the Necromancer if they are to share a future together.

The key to this wonderful romantic fantasy is the heroine who knows relationships with others means abuse so her only ones are assassination oriented; profoundly the woman is the child. Walker is stunned with his prisoner whose behavior is that of an innocent rather than a hard core killer. Readers will relish the love story of The Lone Warrior and the lone assassin in the rousing Rossetti realm.

Rossetti's fantasy universe is very well-constructed and highly imaginative. The characters (by and large) are well-defined and sympathetic. Unfortunately, this is the third volume in a longer series, which is not made clear in *any* synopsis, either online or on the book itself. Main characters Mehcredi and Walker actually meet in the *preceding* volume, making their initial interaction in "The Lone Warrior" seem awkward and odd; important scenes take place "off-panel" in the other volumes. I also had serious problems with Walker suddenly hopping into bed with Mehcredi to keep her from losing her virginity to another man; it was like something out of a Harlequin romance novel from the 1970s. Still, if you are looking for epic fantasy romance, this is a good series to pick up; just be sure to start with the first book, "The Shadow and the Flame."
