Cassandra Rose Clarke is a speculative fiction writer living amongst the beige stucco and overgrown pecan trees of Houston, Texas. She graduated in 2006 from The University of St. Thomas with a bachelor’s degree in English, and in 2008 she completed her master’s degree in creative writing at The University of Texas at Austin. Both of these degrees have served her surprisingly well.
During the summer of 2010, she attended the Clarion West Writers Workshop in Seattle, where she enjoyed sixty-degree summer days. Having been born and raised in Texas, this was something of a big deal. She was also a recipient of the 2010 Susan C. Petrey Clarion Scholarship Fund.
Unlike many authors, Cassandra does not have a resume of peculiar careers. In her spare time she enjoys drawing, painting, crocheting, cooking, and quilting, because she is secretly an old lady. She will see literally any movie as long as it’s in a theater. She watches television. She doesn’t play many video games, though.
Great story, lots of action, and very unique characters.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book but I think that it ended prematurely and there are still things needed to be uncovered before the author had ended it.
I loved the characters and when you love the characters, for me, you love the story.
Couldn't put it down. Very cool story. I liked how it wasn't full of smut either. A a a aPublished 15 days ago by Connor Plumley

I started reading this story and put it down, crying, after the opening line because I'll never write an opening line that strong. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Anthony

Surprisingly good, for a smaller book. I picked up The Assassin's Curse at a bookstore in desperation of something to read, since I'm so picky about what I read and I'll walk a... Read morePublished 5 months ago by heartofcastiel
