What can you expect?
This is a very fast-paced Fantasy series – with pirates, assassins, manticores and magic. There’s adventure, an impossible curse, three impossible quests, sea battles, pirate ports, a magical isle and a touch of forbidden romance.
The basic story…
The main character, Ananna, runs away when her pirate parents try to force her into an arranged marriage. The scorned pirate clan sends a blood-magic assassin – Naji – after her, seeking to punish her. When she manages to save this assassin’s life out in the desert (rather than killing him), she accidentally binds them together with an impossible curse… And so begins Ananna and Naji’s story, as they seek answers to the curse.
Ananna is stubborn, fiercely independent and daring, whilst Naji is secretive, guarded and at times, just a little arrogant. I loved every second of their journeys together. I felt the first book was a little stronger than the second though.
Age range: 16+… sex scenes, piratical language.
