The sequel to The Assassin's Curse After setting out to break the curse that binds them together, the pirate Ananna and the assassin Naji find themselves stranded on an enchanted island in the north with nothing but a sword, their wits, and the secret to breaking the curse: complete three impossible tasks. With the help of their friend Marjani and a rather unusual ally, Ananna and Naji make their way south again, seeking what seems to be beyond their reach.
Unfortunately, Naji has enemies from the shadowy world known as the Mists, and Ananna must still face the repercussions of going up against the Pirate Confederation. Together, Naji and Ananna must break the curse, escape their enemies — and come to terms with their growing romantic attraction.
Set to come out June 4th, 2013
Review: This book just jumps right into action and keeps the reader engaged the entire way. I enjoyed how even though there is romance in the book it is flawed and takes understanding from both parties to come to terms. I loved how old friends such as Marjani come into focus and we learn much more about their history. Plus who doesn't love a manticore
who wants to eat men with tasty magic. It was interesting how the heroine is badass and can stand on her own, and even made the first move. So let's make a run down, the heroine was smart and could handle herself, we have a clueless assassin who is cursed, and talking sharks. Honestly, I could have done without the taking sharks because it was kinda a wtf moment. The story is full of battles and the story doesn't dwell in one area to long like so many books. Not to mention the HEA I was expecting never comes and I am fine with that. All in all, this story reminds me of Tamara Pierce writing, so if you enjoy her books you should check out this series.
