Heidi was raised to be a huntress ever since the Order took her off the streets and trained her in the deadly arts. Foremost among her peers, she was chosen by the Master to be his assassin. She never imagined that she would fall until the day she went against his will and saved his stepdaughter by helping her to escape from his formidable mansion. It made her a target and she became the hunted. They nearly killed her.
Nearly wasn’t good enough.
Seven years of healing, training and hunting the Master, victory is finally in her grasp. She would kill the Master and satisfy her vengeance. When her plans are foiled by a triad of Ragoru after the same prey, she finds herself thrust into a strange alliance of huntress and predator as they seek the male that has wronged them both.
The Ragoru are after him for their own reasons, to satisfy an oath made, it is the only reason that they agree to an alliance with the huntress when seven revolutions of plotting and stalking is foiled. With the Master on the run, they need someone who is intimately familiar with him and can help them in their quest to destroy him.
When their joined path brings them across the continent to Dunvar Citadel they have to confront the terrible truths about the city celebrating its annual spring Fool’s Ball. It is far worse than any of them fear and they have no one to depend on but each other and the bond growing between them.
**This book contains graphic violence and sex that includes a small amount of m/m.
Review by Nancy
Heidi is a Huntress. She embodies this quote by Shakespeare, “Though she be but little, she is fierce,” perfectly. The plot is that Heidi is planning to kill the Master. (He’s evil and deserves to die, by the way.) Three Ragoru desire to end him, as well. Unfortunately, they foil each other on their first try. Gund, Tah, and Orth enter into an agreement with Heidi to hunt the Master down. This book was one marvelous adventure! They journey along tracks through dark tunnels that have a retched surprise. They meet the legendary Atlavans, fiery winged creatures who’re highly intelligent. They encounter Mintars, too! Along the way, they might just get a little help from their new friends.
I’ve just got to say I loved this book! I loved how the Ragaru ended up more than friends with Heidi. (That was quite steamy. Two thumbs up!) Now I’m dying to read a story about our Atlavans. Please, please?! Epic adventure, steamy nights, mythical creatures… Sign me up! 5 stars
