The Impossible Contract is the second book in K. A. Doore's high fantasy adventure series the Chronicles of Ghadid, where a determined assassin travels to the heart of the Empire in pursuit of a powerful mark, for fans of Robin Hobb, Sarah J. Maas, and S. A. Chakraborty

An assassin’s reputation can mean life or death.

This holds especially true for Thana Basbowen, daughter of the legendary Serpent, leader of Ghadid’s secret clan of assassins. When a top-tier contract comes her way — death orders against foreign ambassador Heru Sametket — Thana seizes the opportunity.

Killing Heru is more dangerous than Thana expects: he wields blasphemous spirit-controlling powers, and a rival sorcerer sends hordes of the undead after them both. Her mission leads to the heart of a power-hungry empire, where occult secrets lurk. There, with help from the most unlikely of sources, Thana must decide whether she can fulfill this impossible contract, before an even greater threat overtakes the realm.

“A mix of heart and adventure, and set in a wonderfully inventive new world.” —S. A. Chakraborty, author of the Daevabad trilogy, on The Perfect Assassin
