If I could jump inside of any book and live alongside the characters, it would be this one! This book is rich with imagination, magic, darkness, and love. What happens when you stick the two best assassins (a crowned prince and a general), a deadly huntress, an elite warrior, and a perfect immortal together on the darkest island with the most corruptible magic and evil and a singular goal to retrieve a lost book?? Only chaos, maybe murder, and definitely an abundance of quick jabs, sarcastic remarks, and an overload of bitter, brooding angst. Zafira is a hunter with pure intentions to feed her people and restore magic to her broken land. Nasir is the crown prince to a mad king and known as the prince of death. When their paths cross on a mission with conflicting goals, one the save magic and the other to kill, they must become allies of circumstance to survive the brutal island thirsty for their blood. Monsters are not what they seem and neither is the darkness in the thrilling adventure. Can't wait for book two!!
