"A short but powerful treat"
In THE ASSASSIN'S BLADE, Faylyn is an assassin, trained
since childhood by the Kilrathi. Their most important
rule in staying alive: remain objective. So it's with
some shock, and pleasure, that she's sent to kill Talor
Sylvanos, Emperor of the fif'Steorra Lumen--a man she has
a personal vendetta against. Because Talor is the man
responsible for the destruction of her world.
When she arrives at the palace, she discovers a masked
ball is being held to encourage relations between worlds.
It's with dismay she realizes that though she can blend in
with more ease, she also has many more targets who could
be the Emperor ... or one of his guard.
Throughout the night, as she's searching, one bold guard
pursues her. He won't listen to no, and all attempts at
evading him are futile. Soon his heavy handed seduction
wears down her defenses.
I don't want to give any more away, so I'll stop. Short
and sassy, The Assassin's Blade is a treat despite its
length, and packs a powerful punch. I loved the verbal
play between the characters, and it's something I've
missed seeing in many of the romances I've read in past
months. All in all, don't miss this author. From what
I've seen, she's got many more hot futuristic romances
coming in the future!
