Summary of the Book:
Fantastic Beasts meets Assassin’s Creed in this epic, gripping fantasy romance from debut author Maxym M. Martineau.
Exiled beast charmer Leena Edenfrell is in deep trouble. Empty pockets forced her to sell her beloved magical beasts on the black market—an offense punishable by death—and now there’s a price on her head. With the realm’s most talented murderer-for-hire nipping at her heels, Leena makes him an offer he can’t refuse: powerful mythical creatures in exchange for her life.
If only it were that simple. Unbeknownst to Leena, the undying ones are bound by magic to complete their contracts, and Noc cannot risk his brotherhood of assassins…not even to save the woman he can no longer live without.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The description of this book is what made me want to read it. I love fantasy that is like this. I like Leena Edenfrell and what she does. I like magical animals. I can see what she did is wrong because it is a crime to sell the animal on the black market. Which has an assassin sent after her for her crimes and that is a turn for the worse. She tries to mak a deal with him, but she does not know that he has to complete his mission. He does not want the rest of the brotherhood to come after him. Noc struggles with this choice becacuse he found someone that he wants to stick around and he has a connections to her. It is a wonderful story.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
