What's not to love in a fantasy book about assassins? I read the blurb and was very excited to check this one out and extremely psyched to see there were several books in the series available so if I liked it I could go straight through.
The main character, Kaltor, starts off in mortal danger and Sebrick uses it to introduce some of the special abilities that the assassins harness. It is also revealed that Kaltor must hide his true abilities from all of the others in the area or give away a major secret.
There were some parts that I wish I had a little bit more info about certain aspects of this book, but as the story unfolds more and more questions get answered. The story unfolds well with some interesting enemies coming to the front and a way for the special skills of assassins to be especially useful in the combat. There were also some fairly strong secondary characters in Kaltor's friends and family.
This is a series that I am interested in following to see what Sebrick will bring out next.

From the first few pages of this book I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it but I kept reading on and started to enjoy it very much. Very well written and great story. I was hooked and can't wait for the next book in this series. This is a young adult fantasy book you even if you are in your 30's and up you might like it as well.Was this review helpful?
