Now the only thing that slightly disturbed my focus on the storyline are the rather redundant sentences and character actions. Almost every character uses the same exacted expressions: 'crossing the arms'; 'pressing their lips...' ; 'wipe his/her hands on, pants, apron, shirt....' 'narrow their eyes...' and the grapevines.... grapevine farms EVERYWHERE. It's likes that's the only form of fauna in this universe, besides trees and grass of course.
Despite this, Assassins Charge is still a great and engaging novel. I am aware that this story is set in an established universe that spans multiple books. I haven't read any of them, though I may give them a shot.
Claire has a great, smooth style and hits the ground running right from the start, giving the reader a taste of Rhis as an assassin and establishing her personality and character right away. The action flows fast and easy, and you find yourself swept up in the intrigue and characters that are relatable and enjoyable. The plot revolves around Rhis taking a target assignment from The Empire that turns out to have deeper repercussions than she had anticipated. The action sequences play out fast and realistically, Claire obviously puts a lot of thought into her writing to assure that you are moving through the story at a pace that keeps you invested in the story. I really wish I could have learned more about Rhis, she caught my attention right away. Hopefully we will get more of her backstory in later stories
If you have read the Echoes series, you will be pleased to see Claire has kept the same quality with this tale, if you have never read her, this is going to be a treat for you.
The author does a fantastic job of immersing the reader in the story- you can almost feel the sea salt breeze on your face. The characters were all interesting and I wish there would have been more room to go a bit deeper into each of their stories. Oveall though, Assassin's Charge is a very fun and fast paced exciting read. Our villains range the spectrum (including in some ways our hero) and the central characters really come to life in each new and perilous encounter.
I have this thought about the Imara books, and it is present here to, is that although we have a strong and powerful female lead character, nearly all of the supporting and secondary characters are male. This could be to emphasis the fact that Rhis is strong even in a male dominated society but I still think it would be beneficial to the world to have at least a few more of our secondary characters as women.
Again, I think this is a great spin off from the main series and has sated my appetite while I await Echoes of Imara 4. If you enjoy adventure stories with lots of action and movement then this is for you!
This book can be read as a standalone from the Imara series. It is fast paced and full of rich details like the Imara books. I like how the author was able to expose the very guarded vulnerabilities of the lead character, Rhis & transform her from a cold blooded character into one who gave up everything to protect a little innocent child. The romance was a bonus albeit a little predictable :). I catch myself comparing this book to the other Imara books which have very unpredictable endings that leave me hangjng at the edge of my seat. This book is a wonderful easy book to read on it's own & I would recommend it to anyone looking for an intro into fantasy.
This novel is a standalone based in the world used for her longer running Imara series. It requires no knowledge of the other series and can be happily read by any newcomers who want to try out her work. Longerterm fans will find several details that help flesh out the worlda nd give an insight into the development and politics that may play out in other works. Its an easy, rapid read that isn't taxing but has a charm about it. I can happily recommend it.
