The perfect killer has
- no friends, only targets
- no identity, but many faces
- no conscience, just objectives
There is something different about this series.
- a strong cast of lead characters
- a strong cast of supporting characters
- ancient objects of power
- mages and gods
- a blurring between good ‘n’ evil
Brent weaves a rich tapestry of the lives of “kings to be”, and the down-trodden rising to be honoured heroes.
Kylar, the wetboy (assassin), friend & lover, ties it all together. He’s not quite the perfect killer. And, it’s not just his story…
Terry Brooks (from the back cover):
“I was mesmerized from start to finish. Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, non-stop action and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me admire a writer’s work”
What more can be said, except… a recommended read
It’s really a love story in disguise – get out the tissues for an emotional ending.
