Overview

Harper, Sword Maiden for the illustrious Goddess of the Open Ocean, has returned to the fabled city of Griffon’s Rock at the end of the Last Road to rest for the winter months after a disappointing year treasure hunting. Her rest is cut short by a mysterious storm of divine origin, an attempted horse theft of her beloved mount, and the sudden appearance of a beautiful southerner who seems determined to capture Harper’s heart.

As the snows begin to fall, the intrigue and romance heats up. The object of Harper’s desire, the mysterious rogue Calista, appears destined to get everyone into fresh trouble with a mystical stew-brewing ogre, a greedy guild of Dwarven thieves, and finally an exalted march out of the snowy north bent on divine retribution.

Harper must decide if her growing love for Calista is real or a product of the lies she’s been told. Before the spring thaw, Harper will choose between the woman she loves and the Goddess that is the source of her magic.

I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. From the moment Maraline, Goddess of the sea, makes her very impressive entrance, smashing a blockading armada of sea-going warships to splintery bits, I knew I was in the capable hands of a very talented writer. I was ready to be taken for a ride. And what a ride!

Meet the Author

Cassandra Duffy spent most of her childhood being precocious, which stopped being entertaining or impressive when she grew into an adult, at which point she had to start being precious. After being an outcast child prodigy it was no surprise when she graduated from one of the many fine University of California schools a year early to follow her girlfriend in a cross country move.

She writes a free-lance sex advice column found in various lesbian magazines and dating websites. Her short story collections and novels can be found on her website.

Two of her greatest prides are being a true California girl and author of some truly naughty things. She is a dutiful partially-Asian daughter who is beloved by her fairly traditional Korean father who thinks having a gay daughter is just fine as long as she keeps playing coed flag football. She is a stereotypical younger sister, and an adoring aunt of a hilarious little boy. Being a modern techno-freak, gamer-girl, she spent most of her childhood dreaming of being a video game designer, but changed her mind and brought her dreams of world building and story-weaving to writing unique romance novels.

Cassandra is a gleefully monogamous girlfriend to an earthbound goddess who was once her high school bully, but has done a magnificent job of making up for all the school girl nastiness ever since. When she isn’t being an avid fang girl (vampire fan girl) or tormenting people in online gaming, she lives and writes in Winter Park, Florida with her partner and soul mate Nichole and their two cats: Dragon and Josephine.

I love unlikely couplings. This story follows an assassin who is in love with a valiant knight. The seduction and relationship building creates wonderful tension and leads to some steamy sex scenes. The story itself has an overarching thread of a mystery that is resolved satisfactorily by the end, but that's not the best part of the book. The friendships and the building relationship between the two main characters drives the action. All the characters are unique, complex, and very human even the non-human ones. There are funny parts spread throughout. The fantasy adventure creativity is unlike anything I've read thus far. I don't want to spoil too many of the surprises, but I've never seen ogres written quite this way and that's just the start of the interesting new fantasy tropes this book introduces. Whether you're looking for romance, adventure, or a new fantasy world to lose yourself in, this book is what you're looking for.

This book has everything. Drama, humor, suspense and lots of twists and turns. Enjoyed the different background setting and unusual characters. Be sure to read the second book in this series also.
